Customer Comment - a Carp Talk write up from Ian (ting tong) MacMillan

We stayed positive and selected our chosen pitches, and with warmer weather forecast we were all still majorly excited for what possibly lay ahead, but Keith did tell us the water temperature had gone from 11 degrees down to 8 in the space of a few days so mass baiting would certainly not be the order of the day and most of us opted for singles and bags for the night ahead to be on the safe side.

I suppose it was around 8.30pm when I heard a fish crash slightly to my left against the dam wall, Beech (big fish Dave) went into overdrive on the excitement stakes so after a couple of brews and a bedtime story I sent him packing back to his own tent and it was time for some much needed shut eye. It didn’t seem like I’d been away with the fairies for long when the sound of the right hand rod dragged me out into the frosty darkness with something rather angry pulling back on the other end. The fish was giving me the right old run around and after taking out the middle rod it was time to show it who the bloody daddy was!!  


Gently does it, the bites were earned this week so I didn’t want to be losing anything at the net.

I did finally manage to bundle it in the net but I didn’t know who was more tired, me or the carp.  It was now creeping into daylight and the Beech was soon by my side to help out. The fish went just over 33 and it was more than worth the epic battle, I was off the mark on the first night and was happy to take that, especially in these conditions.  

               My biggest of the week, but what a place Moorlands is, the potential is absolutely massive.

Bob had also opened his account with a pretty scaly 31 (he was on the opposite side of the lake but they still heard him in Calais), so with the morning upon us, and with the sun out, it was time to watch the water like a hawk for any signs of fishes.
