Carp In Paradise

Jack Siddle, 21 from Hull, East Yorkshire  caught a Personal Best 29lb Mirror from the Main Carp Lake beating his previous PB of 26lbs!

Jack’s Story –

“Holiday made in the first 10 minutes’ – The first session of the holiday was on the Main Carp Lake as I really wanted to catch one of the huge, original, scaley mirrors that I have seen many pictures of, on instagram. I set up on a swim called ‘snags’ next to the boat house and decided to pre bait during the day across to the lily pads with no lines in the water to gain the fish’s confidence. Come 6pm , I cast my rods out fishing locked up, I couldn’t believe my eyes when after 10minutes my right rod burst into action. After a short but intense battle, I landed one of the fish I was aiming for, one of the large heavily scaled mirrors!

I used Sticky Baits Krill 20mm boilies on a blow back rig consisting of Korda N-Trap semi stiff braid and a Nash Fang twister size 4 barbless hook.

Thanks again to Zyg, Zenia and the team at Anglers Paradise for another amazing week, I will definitely be back but next time in pursuit of one of the huge residents out of Kracking Carp”.
