Catch Report
Karl Brandreth – The Evolution Carp Tackle NSR landing net system
helped me keep this 15lb carp safe and sound.
Joe Watson – A 21lb 8oz scaly mirror I had this weekend on the
Mainline Baits MK1 tipped with an Evolution Carp Tackle yellow
corn stack.
Daz Carper – I decided to drop on Harthill Fisheries, which I’ve not
fished for a good few years. I flicked a couple of wafters around 50
yards with around 50 baits over the top. The rig was a size 6 Viper
Crank hook fished combi rig style. I only had the one bite and landed
a 19lb 4oz mirror.
Tom Milson – Just the two fish this session, both fish caught on my
standard plan of attack – White Reaper pop-ups over Red Reaper and
Northern Spice, fishing in the shallows. I worked hard for these two
doubles in ridiculous heat, as the fish just didn’t seem to want to feed.
Bradley Gibbons – I made a one-off carp trip to France and bagged a
50 from Napoleon Lakes’ Nap 2!
Midweek on Nap 2 and the conditions had got progressively harder
due to extremely warm weather, and in turn the carp were beginning
to spawn. Due to this, I started a new line to the ones I had been
fishing and prebaited it with Dynamite Complex-T boilies in 15mm
and 18mm and a bed of particle. That evening I stuck one rod over
this area with a 15mm Complex-T food bait pop-up critically
balanced on a size 4 Ronnie rig. At 22:00, I had a run on this rod and
safely landed a huge common weighing 53lb 6oz, an absolutely
pristine fish and my new personal best. I later found out that this is
the common carp lake record too! Chuffed to bits with this along with
20 other carp caught this week up to 50lb 8oz, I have already had an
amazing week. The best two baits by far have been Complex-T and
Red Amo boilies.
