Bainton Fisheries in February 2006 hired some contractors to remove fish from the National Grid Pit to stock them into the L Shape. It was a very cold day and the weed was still at least 2 feet thick on the bottom of the pit. Therefore electro fishing seemed to be the only option.
In summary several hundred small fish mainly Skimmers and Rudd were removed, plus 15 bream of superb condition of approx 3-4lb in weight.
However 2 fabulous perch were also caught which were immaculate, weighing approx 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 lb each.
