Lee Jackson weighs up to a MASSIVE 63lb 4oz!!!

I started back on Strawberry Fields after a long lay off from fishing due to ill health. On saturday night at 11pm  I had a couple of bleeps and then a belting run on my right-hand rod, after what seemed to be for ever but in real time was only 25 mins I managed to get the fish in my net when I looked inside to see my prize I was a shocked at the size and girth of this magnificent animal that lay in my net.

I called a couple of other anglers round to give me a hand, they were both as shocked as I was at the sheer size of such a lovely fish. The fish known as Lee Jackson has lived in this lake from a small common of 5lb and has now grown on to the fantastic specimen it is now.

I first caught it way back in 1997 when i first started fishing here at Strawberry Fields in those days we had great times catching and watching the fish grow so quickly its almost unbelievable at how this little lake has grown on so many huge fish. I have witnessed so many people catching these fine species and now Lee Jackson has finally gone up to 63lb 4oz I wonder where it will stop?

I have caught this fish from 20lbs to 30lbs then at 42lbs and have many of photo's of her in my albums.

Today I am completely over whelmed at what i have caught as i have caught so many fine carp and other species from around the country but this tops the list by far and something I will always remember fondly.

Thank you to Len the fishery owner for letting me fish this fantastic little lake.

Kind regards,

Leanne Jaynes.
