Another Good Session For Mooie

0 Comment
Steve Edwards aka ‘Mooie’ (I’m as intrigued as you all are?) has recently been putting some time in down the Turf and it’s fair to say he’s been getting amongst em! However his previous session had resulted in a blank, but undeterred and determined to make a mends Mooie headed back the following morning…
The traps were set just after first light and fishing from peg 13 Steve nailed 2 small ones around 10lb within 20mins with both runs coming to the right of the peg. This was the start of what turned out to be a hectic morning as 7 fish would fall before 11am with fish of 14lb3oz, 14lb, 13lb 8oz and a distinctive carp with a Black Eye at 18lb 2oz, this being the biggest Steve’s had since fishing Turf. After getting another angler to take the picture, the 18 was carefully slipped back and the trap was reset again towards the point, within 20mins nailed the 16lb grey common capping off a great session…The majority of the carp fell to simple bottom bait rigs with short hook links with tubing on the shank, this coupled with chopped Cell boilies hook baits presented over half a dozen crumbed Cell boilies did the damage…1 of the fish was caught on a 3ft zig with a plum dumbell pop towards the island…good angling!
