Rich Harman banked this stunning 31lb 2oz common carp from Upper Tamar Lake.
Carp anglers are enduring stormy conditions at Upper Tamar Lake fishing the Upper Tamar Mainline Baits Carp Pair Competition.
The gale force winds and heavy rain are proving to ideal catching competitions with a succession of good fish coming to the bank. The competition ends on Sunday when I imagine the competitors will all be a little weary and weather warn. Modern clothing and quality bivvies ensure that fishing in such extreme weather is viable.
Tim Surridge is getting to grips with Upper Tamar’s carp and having only started fishing the venue recently he has just finished a session resulting in 15 runs, landing 11 fish! The best being a 24.08 common. All on Cornwall Bait company’s red seed mix boilies in just 36 hours.
(Below) James Drowne aged 11 caught two cracking fish. The common was 32lbs and mirror 24.05lbs. The common was stocked at 23.04lbs in September 2017. Another new 30 for the venue but more pleasingly is this great capture for James.
