All-ac­tion Trip to Poland

Carpworld - - STICKY -

Steve and Joan Briggs headed off across Europe in search of carp once more, this time driv­ing to Poland and to the fab­u­lous Goslaw­ice Lake sit­u­ated near Konin in the mid­dle of the coun­try. It was ac­tu­ally the first lake they had ever fished in Poland around five or six years ago, so they were keen to see how things had changed. In fact there have been sev­eral changes, per­haps most im­por­tantly the wa­ter level has been raised by about 75cm, which on a lake that was pre­vi­ously shal­low, has made quite a bit of dif­fer­ence! The fish now move more freely around the lake and they have grown on re­ally well with three known fish over 30kg now! The trip started very quickly when Steve hooked in to a 20lb mir­ror be­fore he’d even had a chance to switch his alarms on! A fur­ther five fish fol­lowed that night and that was the shape of things to come. One of the other changes to the lake is that there are now some wooden cab­ins, with good fa­cil­i­ties in­side and so the sleep­less nights were made more com­fort­able dur­ing their stay. The pair were us­ing Nash Scopex Squid boilies along with match­ing flake and pel­lets, and as long as they found some firmer spots in amongst the soft, weedy bot­tom, the ac­tion would come sooner or later. They caught lit­er­ally stacks of fish dur­ing the week. The larger fish were a bit qui­eter as of­ten hap­pens dur­ing the warm­est months, but Joan did catch them to 33lb 4oz, while Steve caught his first Pol­ish com­mon over 40lb to com­plete a hec­tic, tir­ing but also very en­joy­able week!
