The immense Gigantica competition is hotting up!

In March this year we launched a fantastic Gigantica competition giving you the chance to win an amazing prize bundle worth over £3,000! To be in with a chance of claiming the bounty, all we asked you to do, is to come and fish the Main Lake at Gigantica, and if you are lucky enough to catch one of the newly stocked fish which we have grown on site, and it is the first authenticated one to be caught over 20lb, you can claim the prize.

The long-term future of the famous Gigantica complex has been secured via the breeding, rearing and stocking of its own fish. Thirty seven carp up to 13lb (a Mirror known as Hector) were introduced in November 2016, and in 2017 we have seen a few of these special gems grace the banks. As expected, they have started to pack on the weight, and in July, Noel Wolski landed a one of the little beauties known as “Paris” at 16lb. The fish was stocked into the Main Lake at 11lb 8oz and having seen it’s way through a very cold winter has smashed on the weight.

Gigantica Fishery Manager, Andy Savage enthused: “We were expecting the fish to gain weight rapidly, but this is simply off the scale. A fish which has seen 3 summers (C3) in the UK may make 6-7lb; so to have Paris come out at 16lb is mind blowing. We anticipate that with continued weight gains like this occurring, it is highly likely that the first twenty pound fish will come out at some point this winter.”

Gigantica owner, Danny Fairbrass was thrilled with the capture, and explained: “Many anglers choose to hang their rod’s up in the winter and miss out on what can be a really productive time. With the deeper water in Gigantica the lake staying warmer for longer, it fishes really well into the winter. Last year was our most successful in history with a brilliant run of big fish being landed. With no anglers booked on in December, one of our bailiff’s helped himself to; 1 x 70, 1 x 60, 2 x 50’s, 1 x 40, 3 x 30’s and 5 x 20’s in one weeks angling! Awesome winter angling by any standard.”

The prize consists £1,000 worth of fantastic Korda tackle, plus a week’s holiday for two people at Gigantica, and if that wasn’t enough already, you will also get a 48 hour tuition session with carp catching machine Darrell Peck.

We still have some availability this winter; so instead of sitting at home watching boring repeats on the TV, why not book a trip out to Gigantica. Our bailiff’s will make sure you are well looked after, and as well as catching an absolute monster you could also bag yourself this amazing prize bundle.
