Tom Maker starts the year off with a mega haul from Linear Fisheries Hardwick / Smiths lake!!
Adam Penning on Point!
3rd July 2016
Whilst out with clients, Adam Penning managed to snare one of the lakes most sought-after residents…
With the lake experiencing a heavy algae bloom, finding marginal spots with the naked eye was an impossible task. After seeing several carp ghost around the margins, Adam gently waded a rig out to put into position and with the water clarity being so poor – it was a case of prodding around until he found a suitable area. Once the spot was located, he then lowered his Multi Rig into position and threw a few handfuls of 20mm Krill boilies around his carefully placed trap.
A few hours had passed until the margin rod burst into action, and after a heart-stopping battle, one of the lakes most sought-after residents rolled into the net. Once he calmed down and got himself together, closer inspection revealed it was a carp know as Orion, one of the lakes big mirrors and one that very rarely sees the bank. The incredible specimen pulled the scales round to a spawned out weight of 38lb 2oz and brought yet another smile to Adam’s ecstatic face.
