  • Carp... don't you just love em !

    Fished a match at Hallcroft Sat 29th (blowing a gale). Everybody struggled & in the end not many small or big fish were caught but the winner (next to me) had 4 carp & a skimmer for 26lb.
    Two days later (New Years Eve) at another lake, (cracking local farm lake) 13 of us turned up for another match. Now this lake holds carp upto & above 20lb, tench, bream & loads of silvers.
    Like everyone else I set up for silvers & set up a heavyish bomb rod knowing where the carp tend to be.
    I was matching the chap next to me fish for fish but mine were small roach & rudd & his were 10-12oz skimmers. So every hour I had 10 minutes on bomb & sweetcorn. There was no wind & I could sense any second an 8-10lb carp was going to wang the end of my rod round.... it never did !
    All top 3 (inc chap next to me) had 16lb 8oz of silvers, I was mid table... again.
    Cracking match though & we're back again on Sunday.

      Fished the match again today & opted to stick with the silvers this week. Came 4th out of 18... well chuffed.
      1st - 20lb
      2nd - 11lb 6oz
      3rd - 10lb 4oz
      4th - 10lb 2oz (me)

      Couldn't believe 18 turned up on a frosty morning for a knock-up, we've struggled to get 6-8 anglers for all the 2007 summer matches !
