Anglers across the region have been taking full advantage of the milder-than-normal November weather with some great catches.

Martyn Lowe made the most of a four-night session on his syndicate landing five Carp up to 37lb leaving him very happy indeed.

Paul Marriot had a trip out into the Fens to fish after dark for Zander. Using small Roach on a single hook trace he managed to land three fish before heading home to bed.

And finally, Simon Irvine squeezed in a quick half-hour lure-fishing session before work and was pleasantly surprised with a 3lb 5oz Perch.

A Strike King Worm fished on a Texas rig worked perfectly for him.

It seems that big Perch are fairly prolific in the local drains and rivers at the moment and well worth targeting.
