Clifton Community School student Morgan recently showed off his impressive fishing skills at Cromwell Lake when he managed to break the venue record by catching a 44lb 6oz mirror carp!
The 16-year-old banked the carp, named Rose, at her top weight and also managed another mirror carp of 29lb 10oz at the Newark fishery.
“This was the first time I had ever been to this lake so I didn’t have any preconceived ideas, I just went hoping to catch a big fish and beat my personal best. So when I pulled Rose out she was a definite bonus!”
“After I had come back down to earth due to it being the lake record and my own pb, my second rod went and I pulled out a 29lb 10oz mirror.”
The school would like to congratulate Morgan on this very impressive achievement! Well done!
