Tez Taylor had to stay on his toes whilst fishing a north west boating lake, tactic which produced two of the lake’s best fish!
Short Session Magic
16th November 2018
Sometimes you don’t really need to be on the bank for days on end to catch big-fish from tricky waters, and that’s just what happened for Ian Thrower recently.
Ian explains; With just a few hours to my disposal, I decided that I would put them to good use and head down to my current syndicate water, Bundy’s Pit.
Bundy’s is a very old, 8-acre lake and is well known for being a very deep pit. As for the stock, it holds an impressive head of very large carp, with many of these being scale perfect commons, that nearly reach the 50lbs mark.
I arrived at the pit in the afternoon, with just 3-hours ahead of me. I quickly made the decision to fish on the back of the wind, as it just felt right. My plan of attack was to present a scattering of Manilla boilies, and a Stiff-Link armed with a Signature Pop-Up, on the bottom of the marginal shelf, which was a staggering 30-feet.
To my disbelief, shortly after one of the rods burst into life, and after a tense battle I slipped the net under an immense looking common. It was only once on the bank I realised just how special it was, and at 39lb 8oz it is a new personal best for me, a proper English brute that hadn’t seen the bank for over 3-years.
