Small River Carp

Time to try and add a carp or two to my species hunt, and I’m initially targeting a slow, wide but still shallow section where I’ve caught carp before. Two rods and the first dawn raid.

Normally my go-to bait would be corn, but I know these fish get targeted and have probably developed a taste for boilies. Scopex & squid was my flavour of choice, bright and they smell lovely.

Great start - a small common carp on my first cast, species 15 on the bank. Next I lost a small mirror carp - cr*p - I need a mirror carp! And finished the short session with a rogue trout! I’ll be back...
