Catch Reports April 2009

Recommended Posts

That 38 lb common is quite an accomplishment, here in my state on this side of the ditch that would no doubt have you receiving a plaque at the awards banquet for the sport fishing tournament, and just seven pounds shy of our state record.

 

Well done.

 

Dave, this newbie would like to know which species of carp the fat 20 pounder is? another stunning catch by the way.

Its a Mirror, Cyprinus Carpio, same breed as the Carp in USA, but you have nearly all Common Carp with very few Mirrors over there I believe.

If you search out Levigsp's posts he mentions how over time they gradually revert back to Common scaling through spawning

 

To all, some great catches, well done

Had 2 today.

 

a nice 7lbish mirror, first cast, hadn't even put the bank-sticks in and set the alarms up (as i was helping my cousin set up). Off my post 8) Paul had just turned up to say hi :)

 

Nothing for ages- lost two rigs on snags. was sure my rod on the post would go again all day, noticed a fish breaking the surface and saw some shadows under the surface as it warmed up, tied up a zig and cast out into open water then caught a 14lb common (weighed) on a zig rig, size 8 widegape, my first fish on a zig this year i believe :) put up a fair scrap :P had to leave at 3 :(

I fished Friday night to Sunday morning and had 8 carp, the most i've had out of this lake on a session before was 3 so not a bad session for this lake. All the fish were in good condition and I didn't notice any marks on any of them.

 

Got into a bit of a mess on Saturday night, I had a 9lb carp on it got tangled in one of my other lines, then the spreader block fell off the end of my net pole and sank into the margin which was over 5ft deep. I had to put my rod down grab my weigh sling then guide the fish into the sling and unclip the rig in the water. Then I had to make a quick phonecall to a mate to borrow his landing net for the rest of the night :lol: Got to buy a new net for next weeks session now :(

 

All these pictures are self takes as I've had a peaceful weekend on my own.

There is a new ultra light challenge out there, and currently a bailiff from a syndicate near Dereham is the champ. He caught a fourteen pound carp on a collapsible ultra light fishing rod.

 

Practicing ultra light carping today (until my collapsible gets here) with a 4'6" micro-spin rod and four pound test line. Got this little common and this ten pounder, my new P.B. Headwaters of the Murderkill river, spillway below Coursey's Pond near Felton Delaware.
