I am going to set you a personal challenge along with your targets, catch six carp between now and 15th of March, i reckon unless you get a red letter session on this lake, you will fail, i have every faith in you and trust your honesty, i think this will be very difficult unless spring comes very early, good luck buddy, i hope you do it, i doubt anyone else could.

challenge accepted. Remind me on the 15th for a count up. Can I include the one I caught a few weeks ago? :lol:

I think you'd be crazy staying on another year chasing a bigger thirty Vik.

30.01 is as much a thirty as a 39.15 imo. Your best chance of a bigger fish is likely a recapture of the one you've had, it's the lake record! I can't see that pleasing you as much as you think it might?

I do believe there is bigger fish in there. If this fish put on that weight then the other fish I've had at 26-27lb could easily be up there prior to spawning. We will see what happens by the end of May. Likely I will be headed elsewhere but circumstances may change. I know that other rewards are elsewhere but as CM said, it's hard not to fall for the place (minus some of the idiots)

Uless it warms up suddenly end of Feb, i reckon this is a serious challenge for this lake in Winter for anybody, Dave Lane failed less than half a mile from there, the micro climate of this area makes the fish pretty torpid for months, Zigs dowb the shallows in the sunshine may be a method we all need to try and maybe your best shot/

I know mick has had 3 out since the start of the month on short sessions so I have hope. It seems they are waking slightly from a December of inactivity. Food reserves diminishing and the otter chasing them about will be burning more energy than they want to be.

Had two since this afternoon. Night ahead of me. Might be at that 6 fish quicker than expected!
