Lake Records

Our protocols when catching a new Lake Record.

You will need to give the onsite bailiff a call on the bailiff phone 07930 284653.
We will then arrive at your swim and go through the verification procedure in order for you to claim your given record and make it all official 😊
For anglers who might have a potential new Lake Record between the hours of 6PM and 6AM, we will require a seamless video from START to FINISH , showing you have zero’d the scales with the sling BEFORE weighing Fish NOT AFTER !
With regards to slinging a Fish - may we remind you that it is for a maximum of 20 – 30 mins to allow you to get your weighing gear in order and photography equipment ready to use. Floating retainers/slings are not to be used for holding any Fish for longer than our 20-30min rule.
