Predatory mudpig on the mat. On my first cast there was a swirl and flash of gold behind my lure, I thought it was a nice zander. Next cast in the same spot and a huge take, full in the mouth she took it. Normally I would be pissed, but it was a fun fight on a 3-6g rod and 1000 size reel. But it's early in the year for carp on lure.
After a move of swims from catching the Fully at Sandhurst yeah your thinking why move!? But I witnessed many shows first light in a very concentrated area of the Lake so it was a no brainer. A few casts in the new swim and spot found spombing 3k of mixed SS4 Sweet Candy and Honey Nut with this time a pinch of Hemp n 10 Tigers only in the mix was hopefully going to hold the group of fish I saw. A few hours later my first double take from 3 double takes during my red letter session and this Chunky Common was landed along with a Mint Black Stocky Mirror. More bait was Spombed out soon after and the session carried on getting better n better..... 😉 😉
One from an eight fish haul for Stephen Morely out in France! High temperatures saw a difficult week, however our Monster Garlic and Snails presented on a spot of gravel produced this belter! 🎣 Monsterparticles.com
