With Spring finally starting to arrive St.Ives Tackle Team members have been enjoying a great start to the carp fishing with many of them having some great catches. Harry Green visited his local syndicate in Earith and after lowering a Boilie hook bait into the margins was soon rewarded with an immaculate common carp of over 20lbs.
Ivan Woodrow started off a new venture in style whilst out fishing for 24 hours with his angling friend Mick Walton. Unfortunately, Mick blanked but Ivan landed a beautiful Mirror Carp of over 26lb. Legered Boilies fished over to the Norfolk Reeds proving successful.
Gee Brown and Martyn Lowe also went for a social session together catching seven good fish with Martyn catching the biggest at 29lb over a 24-hour period. Paul ‘Taff’ Sellens has stolen the limelight this week again though with an amazing catch from Earith Carp Lakes. Using a snowman rig fished over a bed of hemp and maize he managed mirrors of 18lb 5oz, 17lb 9oz and a huge common of 32lb. These past two weeks really have been a carp fishing bonanza!
