Joel Drapkin ends 2018 with five fish hit and new lake record for The Wharf.
Iban Maes Bagging up in Belgium
26th November 2018
The ever consistent Iban Maes recently had a very successful two-night session on an undisclosed Belgian Canal. During his time on the bank he landed a total of seven-fish, four of which surpassed the 30lb barrier.
Shortly after his session had ended, Iban emailed us regarding his success and this is what he had to say: “My latest visit to the canal proved to be very worthwhile indeed, on my first night I landed a lovely mid thirty mirror, which I braced with a smaller common.
Although the first night had been fruitful, I decided to move to another stretch and deployed the same tactics that had already proved to be successful. I fished with boosted Manilla Yellow and White Ones Wafters that I offered amongst a handful of 16mm Manilla freebies.
By the end of the following day the move proved to have been a very wise decision, I’d landed a further five-fish with three being over the magical thirty-pound barrier!”
