Yes mate don't talk about it like Englefield, pop over there for sure! You can sign my laminated Cemex article about catching the BC before them all! I'm not saying anything else on here now Pop over and I'll tell you. It's not that nutter, you'll know as soon as I say as you know the bloke for sure. He was from that forum, he told me he was the real ninja to do with stars and jumping out of trees (tree surgeon).

Yes that fish (I did name it first of all and quickly edited it), I heard from a few different sources. I look forward to hearing the real story.

Yeah im good mate.. ticking along but fine.
Might pop under the motorway and see you one day!

The Burghfield ninja from back in the old Cemex forum days stopped being the Burghfield ninja and turned into The Lagoon Rambo.. yes the lagoon that your fishing! He used to creep about on all 4s dressed in camo with a plastic toy gun, and try and sneak up on the anglers.. I never saw him.. but I knew someone who knew him... so I very much doubt it's the same person as this one wasn't an angler, and certainly was a bit mental!

But your saying someone I know/ knew claimed to have stocked the common?

Ive fished that area on and off for 30 years.. but i dont know anyone who claims to have stocked it, at least claimed it to me.. so Im intrigued.. but I'll refrain from asking.. 😁

And I say about photos because if there's a group of people putting fish into those lakes on the sly that are now 50+, they'd be taking photos of them I can assure you.. even if they were pasties when stocked.. 😉


Oh.. and if that mirror your talking about had something to do with nuts.. thats quite a long story and probably not for here.. but it was returned.. not reclaimed 🤪

Hellooo Piers. I hope that you are very well. He def ain't got mental health issues that I know of if we are speaking about the same blond haired bloke. Beautiful family too. He was your mate I always thought. I'm not saying another word, it's zero to do with me, and I probably should never have even commented. Especially after what ultimately happened with that mirror that was reclaimed. But that is what he told me.

I doubt that anyone did take any photos, why would you of pasties... But whatever happened, they certainly did not sprout legs and walk from their original home, to those surrounding area pits, all on their own lonesome did they

They deserve medals whoever they are. It was great work.

I very rarely comment on forums theses days.. but think I have to on this.. reckon you've been sold some duff info there Mark.
The common had been seen by several well known anglers in the late 80s early 90s at upper 30s weight.. i had a clear photo of it swimming in the highbank snags around that weight from '93.. it's first capture at 40+ was in 2000...
I understand it was moved from another lake, but not that local, not that small a weight, and a lot longer ago.

The ninja as far as I'm aware was a young lad with mental health issue?

If anyone claims to have stocked fish in that area that are going 50.. 60+ now.. ask them to show you the photos..

You'll get there mate. As Carpstar said, be nice. Make yourself known, but without being a pest. I know from experience people often blow their chances by pestering. I also know how hard it is to get onto the places that everyone wants to fish. How few spaces come up, for literally hundreds or thousands that want them.

It's getting harder all of the time. You have to think ahead. It's the only way.

I secured my ticket to the lagoon 5 years ago. It was easy to get a ticket. The biggun had just gone 50+, the others were mid 40's. I knew exactly where those fish were going, by their exceptional growth rates. Got a ticket, with no intention whatsoever of fishing it for three or four years. A valuable lesson for you Leeroy that very few here will even know. That syndicate, which the whole world and their wife have tried to get a ticket for in the past two years... It's run by a former regular member of the old Cemex forum. Watch what you write on forums mate to some random bloke... It really can have a big bearing on wether you get a ticket to a lake or not, that you might really want to fish in the distant future.

Carp fishing is a small circle mate, especially those kind of syndicates. Even if people do not see stuff that's written, it tends to get back to them anyway.

No mate, that was the first week of April... I never start using that stuff until late May, early June once the water is warm. The carrier is hempseed, seed is for summer. It had nothing to do with that stuff.

I'd walked the pit for a month before my ticket started. I knew where they were. The carrier was Geoff's ABS Chocolate Orange nut mix, crumbed and soaked in S2 liquids and tiger nut slime... With the odd S2 barrel in among it done that. It's S(2)pring crack cocaine for big carp, even the garlic hemp would not come close to that in the Spring
