Angler's Mail: Bait boat ditched… and wonder brace of carp landed!

Recommended Posts

SHANE THOMAS had a dream trip to a secret lake when he took a pair of heavyweight carp.

He's not got a bait boat anymore...but he's catching big carp!He's not got a bait boat anymore...but he's catching big carp!

Ditching the bait boat saw him cruise to success with a PB 44 lb mirror carp (below) – and then a day later took a 53 lb 6 oz giant (above) from the same spot.

The 44-year-old from Newport, Isle of Wight, used a baiting pole to present Sticky Baits Krill boilies over matching freebies and new Krill Clusters.

“I decided few weeks ago to ditch the tech, and I sold my bait boat and purchased a baiting spoon.

“I waded along the margins and found a lovely hard spot under an overhanging tree.

“With the spot located, I loaded the baiting spoon and careful placed my rig in position.”
