Aaron Bunning sent South West Lakes Trust this catch report from his session last week at Lower Tamar – well done Aaron!
‘During a 36hr session on Lower Tamar last week I managed a five fish hit, the highlight being a stunning old mirror carp just under 20lb. It was great to have a few of the elusive mirrors. All fish were taken on Nashbait Scopex Squid wafters over matching freebies’.
Tim Thornton is back at Melbury after bagging a couple last week. Tim sent South West Lakes Trust this report after catching a real beauty yesterday!
‘Well after spending an uneventful night in the only available swim in the teeth of the wind I deduced the carp weren’t there.
I moved swims first thing into a swim occupying the centre of the reservoir. The cold wind got stronger and at 1pm my left rod ripped off on a one toner. An epic battle ensued and eventually after much nail biting this epic carp of 27lb 4oz slid over the net cord.
