Went Carpin yesterday (4/09/2017) after work from 4-7 pm with my wife Cindy. Caught 10~ carp and 4 or 5 channel cats in about 3 hours with most of the action coming in hours 2-3. It was Good day with a few big ones being landed. I had one really big run that I lost , the hook pulling out for some reason. The outing started slow but once they started coming in it was on. We Had 2 doubles on as well.
We were set up on a small point on a local lake using sweetcorn for bait. See below. The carp in this lake really luv sweetcorn and I have only had 1 day there in the last year where i have not caught a carp. Hopefully this trend will continue and will have more post to do in the future on this spot.
Bait- Sweetcorn with secret packbait on weight.
Reels used- 2 shimano 3500 Baitrunners , 1 on 8' ugly stik and the other on 7 ft Ugly Stik Tiger- Daiwa Millionaire II 5000M on Abu 7' rod
Line 16lb Momoi.
