LEE Bailey and his son Noah (pictured) showed the way at Seighford lakes this week.

Fishing the Old Pool over two nights, they landed 15 fish.

They didn’t manage any of the bigger fish in the lake but they caught some stunning specimens, including this 11lb 10oz common carp.

The pair, from Stafford, fished from peg nine, in front of the lodge, using double 16mm halibut pellets. Fish to 16lb 15oz have been landed off the Old Pool this week with night fishing becoming very popular.

Olly landed 20 Bream off Peg 30 using a pellet feeder and died potato chunks on the hook.

He also landed tench to 4lb. Barry, on peg 31, caught half a dozen bream, five tench to 5lb and carp to 9lb all on pellet and meat.
