Exclusive Krassos on Carp
hits, so I thought well, when in
Rome! So I stayed down that end
that session, and I went in to Daisy
Bay. There were quite a lot of fish
showing in there, just cruising on
the top. They weren’t really going
down, but I thought, if they’re in
there, they might go down of a
night. By this time, most people
were using maggots on there; I
tried to stay on the boilies, and at
the time I was using KG1 with a bit
of plastic corn and little scruffy
bags cast to showing fish. I had one
fish that session, a 23lb common,
but everyone was absolutely caning
them on the maggots in there, so I
thought you know what, I’m going
to have to get on this myself. So
next session down I went in Double
Boards, and again Sam came down
and he went in the Fallen Tree next
door. Sam was first of the mark
again with a low 20 in the night, but
the next afternoon, I had a take on
the left hand rod on the boilies up
against the back of the bar on the
back of Double Boards. That was a
low 20lb common again – most of
them are 20lb commons in there,
aren’t they? I had two rods out on
the maggots and one rod out on the
KG1, and about half hour later, the
other rod on the maggots went off. I
played it all the way in, got it to the
net and I think it was a fish they call
Shoulders at about 36lbs. Just as
Sam went to net it, it rolled over
onto the leadcore and the hook
p u l l e d . I t h o u g h o h n o , I d o n ’t
believe it! I was gutted, especially
with the bad luck I had been having
from the start of the year. I then got
the rod back out there, and put a bit
more bait out.
It was quite quiet that night and
nothing really happened, but again
the same time the next morning it
roared off, this time with another
small common, and then it was time
to go home, as my 48 hours were
up. It’s really patchy on there at the
moment; Sam’s mate Dave came
down for his first session, and I
think he had something like 12 fish
with three over 34lbs, and next session he had Charlie’s Mate as well
