The Bait­ing Game at Gi­gan­tica

Carpworld - - MAINLINE -

Af­ter go­ing through the dreaded draw for swims at the start of the week, Sam Jones man­aged to pull num­ber three out of nine and got into the fa­mous Al­ca­traz swim on Gi­gan­tica. He set­tled for two spots – one long at 108 yards to a clear spot, and an­other to his left, at 88 yards to a hump. He spombed 5kg of Krill to the short spot for one rod and would sort the oth­ers when he had more time. Sun­day morn­ing ar­rived and he got off the mark with a 22lb com­mon. How­ever, he found the crayfish to be re­ally ac­tive and so de­cided to put 10kg of Krill and 5kg of maize on the longer spot. The fol­low­ing morn­ing two up­per 30s in quick suc­ces­sion told him that he was on the right track. Af­ter din­ner that day he de­cided to put all three rods on the long spot as the short spot wasn’t do­ing much and on Tues­day morn­ing, af­ter los­ing a fish, he man­aged to land the big­gest of the trip – a 54lb mir­ror called Clarkey’s at its new top weight too! It was clear that the fish were com­ing in for the bait, so he con­tin­ued the pat­tern through­out the rest of the week bait­ing with 10kg of boilies and 5kg of maize at a time, and the ac­tion con­tin­ued with a few stock­ies and some of the larger ones to just be­low 40lb. By the end Sam had man­aged 14 bites with 13 landed – the big­gest be­ing the 54lb, with all com­ing on the Krill Tough Ones topped with White Choco­late pop ups.
