Chub were first stocked in October 2009, then again in November 2011. They were little more than fingerlings, i.e. as big as your index finger. The above pictures are of one of those "stockies" which have clearly grown on well. Although this fish was not weighed it was a good 15" or more long.
The latest picture shown the Chub held in a 2ft landing net! It was caught with a loaded method feeder and sweetcorn in the Main Lake. Quite a few Chub have been caught but this was the first time that the owner witnessed the capture and was on-hand to photograph it.
More chub were stocked in November 2011. These Chub are now roughly 2lb in size!
Roll-on the next 18 months as Chub Fishing should become tremendous?
