Superb catch Joe! I grew up fishing Rochford Res and Doggetts in the 80’s. Neither had hardly any carp in them back then, we did well to catch anything although I do remember seeing a Roach weighed at 1lb 8os which looked huge to me as a kid. I didn’t know Catfish were in there now. Do you know how they got there or how many there are in there (& how big do they go?)

They were stocked in there about 5 or so years ago. I believe there’s about a dozen in there and they go up to 50lb. I think half are around the 20-30lb mark and half are slightly bigger.
