Hi Johnnie

The Scaley mirror is a 2009 stockie ( No13 - 7.4lb when stocked) and I'm pretty sure the leathery one is too going by the stocking photos but I would need a full size pic to check.

The batch mark may be quite hard to spot as it is only small but it should be there on the underside of the right pectoral fin.


Cheers
Saul

when in 2009 were they put in, 1lb in weight gain is quite little for that water with the naturals and bait going in

The fish were stocked 23rd Nov 2009, not really worried about only a 1lb weight gain considering the winter they just went through and being in a new home!
Would also not really say Lanark is a rich water compared to a southern gravel pit for example, plus with the explosion of Roach over recent years, competition for food must be quite high.

Cheers
Saul

saul just read your piece about lanark and the food available if there has been a roach population explosion as you say the carp will be dining high on roach spawn and on the subsequent roach fry,if watched them doing this for years in hoggy,they basically swim through the fry shaol with their gob open,and they are there when the roach have just spawned,it can be a right bugger trying to catch them when they are doing this,latest from the council is that they will not,repeat not lowering the water level in the spring again,ten years and help from the CEH has finally convinced them that it totally the wrong thing to do,instead they will be planting vegetation in bags from a boat ( this is what i proposed to them in 2000) even volunteered to do it for them,but the said that the level will be reduced in december to remove the jetties that are rotten,they will then have groynes constructed in their place,with the proposed cuts in their budgets this might not happen,will let you know what transpires,but it was good to hear them contradicting each other,jim coyle who is in charge of green areas and parks said that their ecologist stated that removing the water was the right thing to do,when i spoke to the ecologist a shiela russell,i asaked her if she was the ecologist in question,when asked if she had bought her diploma on ebay she atsted that she had not told them that water removal was the thing to do,infact she said that she had told them the opposite,what one hand knows the other hand has not got a clue what going on,but it would look as if we have won on this occasion,the problem with the nesting swans,and the loss of three of the cygnets in one night did not go down well with the bird watching fraternitycheers mate for your help and suggestions,eddy ryan

Was watching the carp doing that at Lanark last week Eddie...Was like a sperm whale hoovering up plankton...I was watching all the fry jumping out the way and zoomed in to the spot and followed a carp up the bank at walking pace bulldozing through fry....some sight... 8) 8)

also seen them doin it thats why i said naturals they have to feast on and the peat mounds with blood worm and the snails and the 60 kilo of boilie that goes in every week.

I would have thought even after the winter the gain over the last few months would have been alot more than 1lb even in scotland.

I would wait till the fish have been in the water for a least a full summer before worrying about their weight gains, many will also have spawned out recently too which will see many of the fish dropping a good bit of weight.

60kg of boilies going in a week is quite surprising!
