Won­der­ful week­end in Aus­tria

Carpworld - - HOLIDAY DIRECTORY -

It’s a great thing to see more and more cou­ples shar­ing the carp fish­ing pas­sion th­ese days. Bet­ter equip­ment, fa­cil­i­ties and, in­deed, more big carp, all help to make it be­come a more at­trac­tive way to spend your free time. In Aus­tria, Daniel and Anita Sch­weinzer have had a num­ber of suc­cess­ful trips in re­cent times and that shows no sign of stop­ping! For their lat­est jaunt, they spent just a week­end away at one of their lo­cal gravel pits, which is 11-acres in size. Hav­ing kept in touch with other an­glers on the build-up to the trip, it didn’t look great. High pres­sure had dom­i­nated con­di­tions and things had been tough with very lit­tle be­ing caught. But that was also a bless­ing in dis­guise as when they ar­rived they found they had the lake to them­selves and were able to set up in a cen­tral area and cover a lot more wa­ter. They de­cided to fish four rods be­tween them and cover a com­bi­na­tion of dif­fer­ent dis­tances and depths, in the hope of find­ing a clue. Each area was baited with Manilla boilies and tiger nuts with the hook baits wrapped in Manilla paste. A slice of luck came their way and the air pres­sure dropped, and with that fish be­gan to show. It looked like it was go­ing to hap­pen – and it did! The pair landed four carp along with two grass carp, but the ic­ing on the cake was that they were all good fish with the small­est weigh­ing al­most 44lb and the largest 56lb!
