Taking my total weight of carp to 100lb 12oz, so I've cracked my target of 1lb of carp to £1 of cost to fish here... But I'm not stopping there...

Trying to get the bigger perch using lob worm, but the small ones still eat them. Biggest perch was about 9-10oz...

Fish bait next time...

19lb 2oz Mirror Carp

<- Opps! I was pretty sure when I saw it that it was the same fish I caught yesterday, it had a slightly deformed mouth and the large central scale. Now I've blown the photos up on my mac I can confirm it is the same fish - 2oz lighter today. Better photo!!

And I've reached my target of 69lb of carp, but thinking about it I also had to purchase a rod license for £26, so my new target is 95lb of carp to cover this cost as well. 22lb 2oz to go...

New person best! So close to the magic 20lber. It takes my total carp weight up to 53lb 12oz (Still need 15lb 4oz to reach my goal).

I also caught 12 small perch on float fished worm.

Perch Competition 1

Perch fishing competition 1 - Tooting Bec (peg 5/6)
Dan: 22 Perch
Brian: 20 Perch

42 perch in total, the biggest ones were about 8oz. All taken on float fished worm hook bait.

I took an early lead but Dan was helped to victory, partly, by catching 6 perch in 6 casts with the same worm.

So it's round 1 to Dan, who broke his rod 2 hours into the session and continued to fish holding it together.
