Bit of a stunning carp that Yonny..nice n dark..good weight ?

Yeah it's a bit of a character too which I like. It went 27.06, backed up by a 23.04 torpedo shaped mirror (I'll post a pic in a sec). I didn't think I'd get the chance to fish this spring, let alone catch one, so I'm well happy with those.

Did you get them on zigs or S2's?? 

Neither mate, I had them on fishmeal cork ball pop ups.

Normally in spring I'd be using the S2's as singles or using zigs but on this occasion I had the opportunity to bait up the day before so wanted a matching hookbait. As soon as I arrived in the morning I knew it was going to happen, plenty of fish in the spot. Only took an hour before the first rod was away😀

Well if you're not using your S2's sell them to me please , only 5 weeks on I'm still waiting for my order .

The good thing about crayfish is they make VERY nice eating. I make a crayfish bisque to die for. I put out traps whilst prebaiting the night before a session and then collect them at the end of a session. Today I had a surprise catch.

I am told that if they have round eyes they are safe - if they have slit eyes you are already too close!

Either way I feel very uncomfortable when they are about.

I saw a grass snake swimming across my lake the other week, now if I am in that area I am convinced there will be adders around in the long grass
