Harry Catton, 17, of North Walsham, also caught three other carp weighing from 17lb to 21lb on his overnight fishing session on March 14 and 15.

Clive Dobinson, a bailif at the Bridge Inn Fishery, said his largest fish weighed 31lb and described it as a significant catch so early in the year.

He said: “Harry made a really good catch and he needs to be congratulated.

“In a whole year only three or four 30lbs plus carp will be caught.

“To make a catch like this so early in the year and in this weather is worth celebrating.”

Mr Dobinson said the main lake at the Bridge Inn Fishery had a newly designed match lake for hire at £60 to clubs for matches as well as day tickets.

“It has been stocked with 300 carp and also has Bream, Tench along with a massive head of ‘silvers’.”
