March 2017 Catch Report


Day Ticket 30lber!

Nick Carter has a massive reason to celebrate this weekend after landing several fish and one of our day ticket specimen lake 30s! We will let Nick tell you everything in his own words..............

"Just returned from an amazing 48 hours on Peg 10 on the specimen lake.

The lake was looking beautiful with spring in the air and plenty of carp showing all around it! On Thursday afternoon there were at least 20 carp huddled around by the inlet along from Peg 11 some being in excess of 20lb!

Thursday evening gave me my first carp of the year, a beautiful 10lb 2oz stockie, 3 more were to follow all between 9 and 13lb!

As Friday evening approached I considered changing tactics but decided to stick with what was catching

Come 7:30 pm I had a three bleeps on my left hand rod, I could see the tension was still on it, so I struck and was into a larger specimen! After a 10 - 15 minute battle, with the fish diving down to the depths and taking line of my reel as it did, she finally gave in and I slipped my net underneath her!

I knew she was big, but it wasn't until I shone my light on her as she rested in my landing net that I knew it was a new pb!

I gave a shout to a couple chaps on Peg 6/7 to come and do the honours with the camera, naturally to which they obliged, thankfully he brought his dslr camera to take the snaps!

On weighing her she tipped the scales at 31lb 1oz! A new pb and my first ever 30! Beating my previous pb by 6lb's!

I went back to basics with a simple knotless knot hair rigged krill boilie in pva solid bag, with pellets, crushed boilie and chilly hemp!

Later that night produced another 2 mid-double carp, so I finished off with 7 carp but best of all catching my first 30 after quite a few years of trying and from such a beautiful venue will stay in my memory forever!

Many thanks to you all for some of the happiest fishing memories!"
