  • yay, new pb

    well chuffed, last chuck of the day, last bit of corn and an otherwise middling day becomes awesome, i know most of you guys would class it as small but to me a 10lb carp is a fine achievement. safe to say i now know how far my float rod bends and that my drag is set right!
    last 3 weeks have seen me up my pb from 5lb to 6 then 8 and finally 10, glad i didn't get this one on the pole though.

    PBs are what they are mate. Personal to ourselves and that's all that matters. Well done buddy and don't let anyone degrade your acievement.
    You just gotta keep upping the anti now mate.

        what i did is got a pb of 11lb then got myself down a lake where the smallest fish is 8lb or so up to 40lb that way i know ive got a good chance of beatin it and i got a 16lb but its trying to beat that which is flippin hard but fun

        keep goin m8 if theres bigger than 10lb fish in the lake then who knows it might eat your maggot or corn if its there goodluck and congrat

          thanks guys, bigger fish are welcome but i'd just like some warning next time, i was rolling a smoke when the float went. i think there are a couple of 20's in the canal and up to 30ish in the lake.
          the adrenaline rush was unreal, trying to stay calm and methodical about weighing and photographing took some doing.

            Was it a common? On my local the common's seem to have twice the power of the others.

              yep, along lean common, didn't exactly run fast just had so much power in comparison to the 8lb mirror i had last week on floater with the pole, actually struggled to net it even once it was tired out.
