Having given the barbel fishing a rest for now, John had set himself a target of a 30lb+ carp this season. That goal was completed last week on his birthday session, landing 5 carp. The smallest at 24lb 12oz and the biggest at 33lb 10oz known as the Big Headed Common. Lake bailliff was on hand to witness, weigh and take pics. (Hence he knew which fish it was) all 5 fish fell to Noble Baits OP-31 pop-ups fished over a bed of particle with a couple of kg 18mm baits as freebies. A great result John! Many happy returns!
