Stockport who caught an amazing Personal Best and also a BIG
SURPRISE 11lb 8oz Koi from the Kracking Carp, a Fish that we are
all puzzled by as to how it got in there but what a
Carl’s Story –
“On Saturday I fished the Kracking Carp Lake with my wife and friend Maggot Mick. Saturday was fishless for me but on Sunday, I noticed the Lilly pads moving so I put some mixers and watched, then to my surprise, I saw a BIG Koi taking off the top, so I brought one of my rods in and set up my stalking rod.
The Koi spooked but I watched it for an hour or so, when it returned it took a mixer so I placed my oily floater next to where it had taken from and it took it straight away!!
It gave me a 5 minute fight and I couldn’t believe when it weighed in at 11lbs 8oz happy days!!”
WELL DONE CARL, ANOTHER GREAT WINNER AND WHAT A FISH!!
Here he is with the Winning ‘Surprising’ Catch!
