Luke Potter, 30 from North Tawton, caught this Personal Best 29lb 12oz Mirror from Nirvana’s Day Ticket Kracking Carp Lake caught on a snowman setup, fished over a mix of 12&16mm Manilla boilies. Luke saw lots of Carp crashing up the far end (inlet end) so he set up in the last two pegs and fished very tight to the right hand side of the island. It’s the second time Luke has fished the Kracking Carp and to make the catch even more special, he caught it on the Morning of his 30th Birthday!!

5C’s Member Chris Flook from Ivybridge caught a new UK Personal Best 38lb 9oz Common from the Kracking Carp Lake. Chris caught the Common from Swim 1, 15yds out in a gap in the weed using 20lb line, 2 nr 10mm Duster Matrix pop ups on a hinge rig, size 4 barbless hook. Chris Said –“It was a tense fight with such a fish at short range. Thought I’d lost it at one stage in the weed, but as it was close in I was able to exert pressure from above and it came free and after that scare it came easily to the new net. Not a bad way to christen a new rod and net.I went on the lake hoping for a PB so it was mission accomplished.I have to thank Lee and Frank Hydon, two other anglers who gave me a few of their pop ups to try when they left. Thanks to Zyg, you and Joe and the rest at Anglers Paradise for giving me the chance of catching such a magnificent carp.”
