Yikes, I hit the jackpot on this rainy, drizzly morning with a massive common carp that was just shy of 30 lbs. The hog went 34 inches long and was wide and heavy. I might also add it gave a terrific fight.
I got the fish on a new experimental flavor of maize called "sweet and salty wild peach berry". It is not sold anywhere, and I am testing it out for a famous US bait maker. This bait has been astounding for me in the last several days, catching a lot of fish and some real large ones. I am using a couple of kernels on a hair rig. Ahead of it I am using an unflavored oatmeal based method ball that is packed around a 1 ounce camouflaged sinker.
