Simon Kenny – When your Luck’s In
13th August 2018
After a successful first session on Kingsmead 1, Simon was eager to return. Although he had landed a couple of fish during his first session, it could never compare to his second! We recently caught up with Simon to discuss the events of his second session and this is what he revealed:
“When I arrived for my next visit I knew roughly where I wanted to be and luckily I managed to lay claim to Dog 1. This swim commanded a lot of water at the bottom of a large bay that was filled with weed, and in no time at all it was clear there was a good number of fish cruising amongst the dense foliage.
I quickly found a nice clear channel between weedbeds and soon dispatched two hinged-stiff rigs and 3kg of Krill freebies. This brought me my first bite of the session at approximately midnight, the result was a lovely 23-pounder.
Now the main reason I was attracted to K1 was the big suttons that resided in the lake, so you can imagine my surprise when just after first light I engulfed one of them into the folds of my net.
The slow and heavy battle ended with the Lucky Sutton sulking at my feet, a beautiful, dark and deep bodied 44lb 2oz mirror. I couldn’t believe that I had landed one of the big suttons so quickly, but I guess when your luck is in, it’s in!”
Simon then went on to landing three more fish including a 26lb 12oz mirror, all of which fell to his faithful hinged-stiff rigs that he loaded with Krill White Ones pop-ups.
