In Search of Monster Carp
weight for me at 33lb 12oz. I think the
fish came out at in June at 39lbs, and
we all think it will be over 40lbs, well,
it should be over 40lbs by now. It hasn’t been caught since then, and a lot
of the big fish on Sutton have only
been out once this year, which is a bit
unusual, but they haven’t spawned
on there, so whether that’s mucking
things up, I don’t know.
So I was lucky; I had three bites the
first day, losing one and catching two.
I went back the second day, had
another three bites, this time didn’t
sleep through any of them, and had
two 30’s and another 27lb’er. On the
third day, you just couldn’t have written the script any better. I always said
it’s not all about the magical 40-mark,
but I always wanted my first English
40 to come from Sutton. I always said
to Kodak I wouldn’t pull off until I had
caught one of them at 40lbs. It was
about six o’clock on the third day in
that swim, and I was lucky enough to
have the Big Fully again at 40lb 8oz.
There’s a picture here of me playing
