Bod Knight – I fished Frimley Pit 3 and had this one at 41lb 10oz on a
Dynamite Baits pineapple pop-up on a normal hair rig while fishing
in a charity event over a bed of Dynamite Hemp and Snails. This is
just one of the many fish I’ve had on Dynamite Baits.
James Beeny – I just had a good weekend at Bishops Bowl Fishery’s
Green Hills Lake landing four carp up to 25lb, all caught on Sterling
Baits Malt Zest boilies tipped with Citrus Berry pop-ups and also
using the new Pinpoint Claw hooks from Nash Tackle.
Mihail Georgiev – 12kg from Bulgaria.
Lee Leach – I started my session on a local private lake with my left
hand rod in open water with a simple KD rig made out of Ability
Tackle size 6 Curve hook, quick link swivel, anti tangle sleeve and
also the lead clips and rubbers. Bait wise, I was using two RJL Baits
18mm AF1 boilies with a small PVA mesh bag of pellets. On my right
hand rod it was exactly the same except I was using two RJL Baits
20mm Nut Crunch boilies tight to the right island. At 8:20am I landed
my first fish at 15lb 10oz, which came from my left hand rod. Shortly
after putting that fish back, my right hand rod ripped off like a rocket,
and to top it off, it went 16lb 4oz. After all the action in my area, the
fish moved away from open water and came closer to the bank. I
wasn’t going to sit on my hands and wait for them to move again, so I
put my left hand rod down to the margin on a snowman rig made
from Ability Tackle components and an RJL baits 18mm AF1 boilie
and a 12mm Strawberry Jam pop-up. After 30-40mins,
BEEPPPPPPPPPPPPP, and I had one at 19lb on the button, a new PB,
and I was over the moon. After waiting so long to beat my old one, it
was very welcome. I kept baiting the margin with matching boilies
and some particle to keep the fish on the feed. Between 10am and
12am, I had another three fish from the margin, which went 15lb
12oz, 17lb 10oz and 12lb 8oz. All but one fish so far had come from my
right hand rod, so I decided to put my right hand on a snowman rig
made from Ability components and a RJL baits 20mm Nut Crunch
boilie with a 12mm Banana Violet pop-up and put it in tight to my
other island, as I’d seen fish moving around there. I put 15-20 loose
matching baits around the spot to get this fish confident in feeding.
After 1pm, the margin went quiet and the island started to get more
active, so I was expecting something to happen. After waiting 20
minutes, I was starting to wonder whether something was wrong
with the rig or bait, but all of a sudden it was ripping off with a fish
which weighed in at 15lb 11oz… but is wasn’t over then. I had
another two fish on that rod within the next hour and half, weighing
in at 15lb 7oz and 15lb 10oz. I finished my session with two more fish:
one stunning mirror coming from my left hand rod, which went 17lb
6oz and another common from my right hand rod at 15lb 12oz.
Altogether I finished with 11 fish: nine commons and two mirrors, all
but one over 15lb and a new PB. I couldn’t have asked for a better day.
Jack Davis – I caught this lovely 38lb mirror on The Source glugged in
The Source liquid attraction on a heavily baited area.
