Steve Briggs brings us his usual round-up of what’s been occurring big carp-wise across the continent over the last month
Something a little different now, a stunning mirror from Denmark! While countries such as Denmark and Sweden don’t generally have the monsters that some countries hold these days, what they do have are some incredibly beautiful carp – and here’s one example! Morten Rasmussen spent 36 hours at Lake Soroe, a Danish public lake, some 510-acres in size. He baited with three and a half kilos of Manilla boilies and four kilos of tigers and peanuts during the session. Morten used Manilla hard hookbaits and Signature pop-ups, fishing a blowback rig with size 4 or 6 Mugga hooks. After a long period of hot, sultry weather finally some low-pressure weather with rain arrived, and with decent winds too. It was the sign that he had waited for, so he headed out after work hoping for some action and it worked perfectly! With four fish landed in 36 hours, he was very happy with the result, especially as it certainly isn’t an easy water!
