Se­cret Gar­den stun­ner

Carpworld - - ECHOES -

Pete Sum­mers headed south re­cently, to the fan­tas­tic Se­cret Gar­den venue in France, with friends Sam and Rob­bie, and even though it was bit­terly cold while they were there, they found the carp to be in a friendly mood! With the lake closed to the pub­lic the main pur­pose of the trip was to help out around the venue with owner Jean Noel Ne­graud – but of course they weren’t go­ing to drive all that way and not get the rods out for a bit! De­spite the cold con­di­tions Pete was ad­vised to fish the shal­low end of the lake and so that was what he did. It turned out to be a good move as he not only caught a few fish, he also caught what he de­scribed as one of the best-look­ing fish that he’s ever seen – a su­perb heav­ilyscaled mir­ror that he hooked from just two feet of wa­ter! Pete recog­nised the fish as one that his part­ner Mandy had caught ear­lier in 2017, but since then the fish has piled on a few pounds and also dark­ened in colour. Sam and Rob­bie both got amongst the fish too, with Rob­bie get­ting a new PB of 26lb 2oz and Sam catch­ing a mir­ror of just un­der 40lb, which has put on 3lb in the last three months. All of the fish were caught on the RBA Baits Spicy Krill boilies.
