Manor Farm Leisure - Island

  • Sunday 28th
  • Peg 23
  • 59lb 8oz
  • Won section
  • 13 fished

Today's match look to a lot better, as the weather was much more milder and the wind nowhere near as strong. A seem to like drawing in the corner, however the wind was blowing into it, and therefore did fancy it for a few fish. However, my Mainline NRG meat didn't work today, and 6mm banded pellet was much more productive.


Yellow Meat gear, Drennan Carp Hair riggers and Preston quick stops.  I use 0.165 Colmic X5000 line, I wouldn't suggest going any lighter as these carp run big and they are very powerful.



 
 

Got a battering off the next peg though.

It is surprising how many big carp there are at Manor Farm Leisure, and I think with the cold weather coming, these carp are having a quick feed before the winter comes.  Last night’s frost was always going to make this a difficult fishing match, however very pleased with drawing peg 6, what a flyer!
Big fish trying to get under the rope.
 
I had 4 fish that would of gone 30lb.
