What's being caught here - tench, caught by Meatman on 21st May 2016
I didn't weight this fish, but estimated (conservatively) that it was well over 5lb. Bait was hair rigged meat with ground bait feeder. Also had half a dozen bream, one on meat, the others on corn. First time I've fished Uckinghall in over 30 years - hopefully get another visit in soon.
What's being caught here - 12lb2oz Zander by Glen Irwin May 2016
Caught on a small shad lure and light spinning outfit. Put up a surprisingly very strong fight lasting about 7mins.
What's being caught here - 15lb mirror carp March 2016
Report of a surprise catch: Fishing Uckinghall on a very wet and windy 26th March, mainly for perch, only 6ft from the bank with a lightweight float rod , 5lb DS line, a size 14 hook with a brandling worm. Float went under and I thought I’d hooked the bottom, as it was solid - but then the bottom starting moving! After a tense 15min battle, with the rod bent double, I managed to net the fish - the line snapped just as it slid into the net. It was this beautiful mirror, in perfect condition and weighed bang on 15 lb. So despite the general view that there only a few carp in the pool, here’s proof positive that there are some nice fish left, and maybe ‘Mr Crabtree style’ fishing is the way to go. Certainly the biggest carp I’ve landed on such light gear. Cheers Glen Irwin
What's being caught here - 5lb tench 27th April 2016
Hoping for a few perch and bream (not to mention the odd eel or two) in amongst the April showers, pleasantly surprised when this immaculate tench grabbed my bait (a lobworm tail) and led me a merry dance on light-ish tackle for a few minutes. Bang on 5lbs. Don't usually fish for them until the lilies are up! AlurnS (via the BAA Forum)
What's caught here - zander Dec 2015
Myself and Spud had a days zander fishing last Wednesday at Uckinghall. We had a cracking day with us both having runs all day but has you can see from the attached photo Spud was pretty pleased with himself after after hooking and landing this 8lb beauty. The pool came up 5" during the day and the culvert by the house was bubbling up like a Jacuzzi so it was not blocked as we suspected. Colin Townsend (Fisheries Team)

Whats being caught here - Early 2017
After the all the hard work on the Fisheries working party at Backstone yesterday myself and Spud decided to have a relaxing day at Uckinghall. Spud was just nodding off when his alarm screamed off and he hit into this hard fighting 10lb 8oz zander. She was taken on a small roach dead bait, ledgered hard on the bottom. Colin Townsend
