I caught this carp at Shepherds Way on 9/4/17. My tackle was 5lb mainline with 3.6lb hook line on a size 16 hook, i hooked the carp in its bottom lip. The bait was 1 piece of tiny corn and a maggot, it took 15 minutes to land due to me worrying about line snapping.
For a fairly new angler I was very pleased with myself.
The carp weighed 15lb
Wally Spooner fished the peg next to the promontory with the windmill in the main lake. Tackle was 12 hook, hair rig with small feeder, carp rod behind alarms. Bait 2 6mm pellets halibut and robin red. Feeder had pellets plus ground bait. Fished 12.00 to 3.30pm, caught 5 carp, between 8 and 14lb, 4 commons 1 mirror all in good condition, fought well. Fishery peaceful, red kite orbiting overhead.
