Ma­dine magic

Carpworld - - MAINLINE -

Apart from the ob­vi­ous pub­lic­ity that the World Carp Clas­sic at­tracts, we seem to hear very lit­tle from Lac de Ma­dine th­ese days. So it was re­ally good to hear from Jon Scoffield, who has been fish­ing the big lake and with some suc­cess! Jon, and his mate, Tom, fished for a to­tal of seven nights land­ing 16 fish. Jon had 11 fish up to 40lb 2oz – the ma­jor­ity be­ing com­mons which he thought was strange for Ma­dine. This was their sec­ond trip in the space of just three weeks over there, land­ing a to­tal of 26 fish all told, up to 48lb. All the fish were taken on 20mm Rod Hutchin­son KMG, us­ing snow­man rigs com­pris­ing size 2 Gard­ner Mugga hooks, Gard­ner Sly Skin hook­links, MCF lead clips and 10oz leads fished over ap­prox­i­mately 2kg of KMG boilies and 10kg of hemp at 200 yards. They were es­pe­cially happy with the re­sults over both trips, given the fact swim choice was lim­ited due to the fact the is­land wasn’t fish­able be­cause of un­safe banks.
