I have a lot going on at the moment and haven’t had much time to get on the bank, but I managed to fit in a few hours as my wife is a diamond. On Tuesday I headed down to my syndicate the Wharf Fishery at 7pm. On arrival I had an area in mind that I was confident would produce. I had a short walk and saw a few fish showing so set up quickly.

I put my rods out and spodded Munger particle over each spot. After approximately 30 minuets my middle rod ripped off and after a long battle I had a 28lb 2oz common in the net. There were still fish showing over my spot so I quickly got my rod back on the spot and spodded more particle. Just as I finished my right hand rod screamed off. I knew this was a big fish and I would be in for an epic fight. This resulted in another common weighing 29lb 8oz. I was over the moon with this, two lovely fish in such a short amount of time.

There were still fish showing so I spodded again and waited. About an hour later two big fish exploded out of the water right over my right hand rod then within seconds it was away, another screaming run. Instantly this fish felt bigger it was hugging the bottom and felt very heavy. It was another epic battle and when it came over the net I knew it was something special. I then sorted my rod out while the fish rested in the net as I looked at the fish I knew it was big, but didn’t expect what I saw on the scales 35lb 4oz of common carp and my new PB. What a fish! I later found out it’s a fish called The Slippery Common, it’s called that for a reason as it does not come out very often, what a buzz.

By now it was coming close to packing up time and as I was sorting my stuff out the right hand off ripped off again resulting in another common which was 24lb 8oz, In the battle it managed to wipe out my other two rods. What a session all this happened within four hours and I’m amazed with my results for a short session. Three fish were caught on Tutti Frutti Pop Ups and one on a Blackjack Pop Up fished over Hinders Munger particle.
