|@27,4 kg this was my last fish of the trip...|
The weather was a bit moody with frosty mornings and long periods of rain and I really was expecting the first days to be quite as the carp would need to get on the bait - just after lunch on the second day, the first rod was off and after a lengthy boat battle a long mirror of 70lb and 1oz was ready for pictures - what a start!
|31,8kg!! What a start - look at the length of that..|
|A BIG surprise @ 32,8kg what a carp!|
The next days didn't produce anymore action - even changing spots, hookbaits and every other trick in the bag helped - but sometimes the carp just aren't interested. After a weeks fishing the weather changed to milder temperatures and the carp reacted straight away. In the comming days the action would be more steady without going crazy and I finished the trip on a total of 11 carp including two 50lbers, a 60lber, the 70lber that I landed early in the trip another 70lber @ 72lb 5oz and a new PB - a massive 88lb plus mirror that took me the length of the lake in the boat and 45min to land!
