Ricky Perrett 34 and his Nephew Kieran John Baron 26 from Plymouth came to Eldorado for a week’s fishing in the hope of some fishing action and to catch Ricky’s 1st ever Catfish.
Well that’s certainly what they ended up doing! Between them they had a brace of Cats in one night, Ricky caught a stunning 18lb 15oz Common and to finish the week off he landed a personal best 23lb Catfish, all from the Bottom Cat and Carp Lake 2!
Ricky caught his fish on a simple salty squid pop up on a standard hair rig with a size 6 barbless curve shank Korda hook, with putty to pop up rig just off the lake bed, with a scattering of salty squid boilies and some hempseed & sweetcorn. Kieran caught his Catfish on a long hair rig with Marine Halibut Pellets popped up with a Paradise Baits Catastrophic pop up.
Ricky Shared – “Thank you for the experience and can't wait to come back again”.
WELL DONE RICKY AND KIERAN – ALWAYS GREAT TO SEE AND HEAR ABOUT THE ONES THAT DIDN’T GET AWAY!!
