Big South West Lakes Carp!

posted in: Carp Fishing, Sidebar | 0

Its not a North Devon carp but thought it worth sharing as its a superb West Country Specimen!

Massive well done to Wayne Bateman for catching ‘the secret’ from Argal reservoir at 40lb 2oz! Argal, part of the South West Lakes portfolio, has been in really good form recently.
Wayne caught it on a very big bed of mainline fibre boilies fished snowman rig style along with a 3.5oz Westcountryleads flat pear. Congratulations Wayne!

PERSONAL BEST FOR 9 YEAR OLD JACK AND LOTS OF OTHER ELDORADO BEAUTIES FOR THE PAINTER FAMILY!

Paul Painter and his sons Harry 16 and Jack 9 decided to brave the weather and have a weekend fishing at Anglers Eldorado – and it certainly paid off seeing the youngest of them Jack catch his personal best at 27lbs 8oz!

Paul shared – “Myself, Harry, and Jack, had a good 48hrs on the Eldorado complex even though the weather was very rough!! We had quite a few Carp out of the bottom lake and had a few hours float fishing on the top lake which produced some lovely carp including Koi. Jack had a really memorable session when he smashed his Carp PB by 7 and a half pounds when he caught a 27lb 8oz Mirror on Saturday morning!!! He also managed to stalk out some Koi on floating crust from the Koi pond.”

MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS JACK – TO CATCH A FISH OF THAT SIZE SO YOUNG IS PRETTY AWESOME!! GREAT TO SEE YOU HAVING QUALITY FAMILY TIME ON THE BANK!
