Carp Catch Reports

Carp Fishing – Family Moments – Carl Udry

With Covid impacting angling being so open and closed this last year, plus restrictions in place impacting visitors on the bank when open. My family haven’t been able to nip in to say hi to Dad this last year. But at random points in the past, they have dropped by and shared my love for carp angling.

Carp Fishing – Unfinished Business – Things Happen For A Reason (Part 2) – John Bartley

I could still see some frothy bubbles on the surface, with that, a good fish showed but it was a bit far out in this swim and I knew that I could get a much better line angle in the point swim. It was a zone that I had never seen anyone fish from the point but more important the line angle would be perfect...

Karpervissen – Fish of A Life Time… – Tommy De Cleen

Het begint allemaal op een namiddag tijdens een opendeurdag in een shop waar ik Gardner Tackle sta te vertegenwoordigen. Vroeg in het voorjaar van 2017 dat ik enkele foto’s te zien kreeg van het desbetreffende water (ik vermeld het de locatie niet uit respect voor zij die er vissen) maar ik noem het ‘de diepe zand put’ of ‘the deep sand pit’.

Carp Fishing – Bars of Summer Gold – Craig Smithson

After Monday 23rd March when the government finally said we could go fishing I was out the door in a flash! I was doing one or two nights a week at Milton, unlike some places, Milton did not exactly fish its head off. In all truth I was scratching around each trip trying to get a bite with plenty of blank trips...

Carp Fishing – My Year 2020 – Gavin Cambell

The start of the new season on the island lake was a bit strange… Coming after the lockdown, and the fact the biggest fish in the lake had come out at 60 lbs plus meant the lake was rammed. The first few weeks became a lottery and I just slotted in between anglers in vacant swims that weren’t really on fish...

Carp Fishing – Review of My Year 2020 – Rick Golder

The first week of March was when I saw my first fish, as late one night I heard one crash out in the darkness, and the following morning another showed in a snaggy corner. That same week the level had dropped so much, it was possible to walk round the entire lake. It was all building nicely, and then the lockdown came! It was frustrating, but in the scheme of what was happening in the world, far less important...

Carp Fishing – Big Carp Mind Set Part 3 – Nigel Sharp

I continued to press on with my Winter campaign and as we all know we were getting some awesome record-breaking mild weather during late February and into early March. This weather had my head in a bit of a spin because, although I don't believe for one minute that the Frimley fish had stopped moving all winter, they were really starting to show...

Carp Fishing – The Rockford Leather – Andy Muir

I have been fishing Rockford on and off for the last 2 years with only 1 capture, and one loss to a cut off. This year I decided to give it my full focus and hopefully capture another one of the gems of the lake. I started early, with a few trips in January and February, mainly to explore different areas of the lake and start to work a few things out...

Carp Fishing – Quest for an Avon 30! – Craig Smithson

Towards late afternoon we headed back to the carp zone, and this time we found some fish feeding; one being a dark mid-20 common. With the fish moving off Wiggy lowered his rig onto the spot and we sat back waiting to see if we could catch one of these black carp swimming around in the deep clear water...

Carp Fishing – A Brace Of UK 50lb Commons – Dave Gaskin

In early 2016, I found myself itching to get back down the ultra-low-key venue known as Wellington Country Park, to try and get amongst the phenomenal stock of carp whilst they were at their optimal weights. However, with all good things in life, they come at a price...

Carp Fishing – Changing It Up – Ian Lewis

I needed to come up with a plan to help remedy my issue with the abundant bites off the Tench and Bream I was catching. Now I do not dislike Tench or big Bream per say, but they are not the intended species, so this train of thought took me right back to the drawing board regarding approach, rigs and bait...
