A visit from Bait Tech in January 2018: from their Facebook page –
“Darren Attwood opened his 2018 account with two carp in his latest session!”
“The venue of choice was Elton Carp lakes just outside of Gloucester towards the Forest of Dean . The horse shoe shaped lake with an island running down the middle was stocked around 2005 and the carp have come on nicely with a large head around the 20lb mark. As I was limited on time I was looking for quick bites so I decided to use Bait-Tech’s Tutti Fruity sweetcorn on the hair with a bag of mixed maggots soaked in Corn Liquid” .
“Fishing a couple of feet off the island it didnt take long before my bobbin come out of its winter hibernation and 2018 was kick started with a stunning mirror weighing in a whisker over 18lb! Shortly after the same tactic tripped up another stunning mirror weighing in at 17lb. With these cold misty mornings Super Sweetcorn range does the business and to really increase my chance of a bite Liquid Corn is a must have to boost those free offerings!”
