LONGBRIDGE Lake on the Broadlands Estate have begun a major carp restocking programme on the popular day ticket fishery.

The fishery has bounced back from K.H.V 18 months ago and fishery manager Jon Hall stocked Snowy at 21 lb 4 oz plus some nice upper doubles to 17 lb.

Around a hundred gorgeous scaly carp between 9 lb and 11 lb are to be stocked next week.

Longbridge has always been a top winter carp water and the new stockies should light the blue touch paper for some great action.
