A Dream Week for Andy!

21/08/2013

Andy Taberner's personal best carp before arriving on 10th August was a scraper twenty and he had never seen, let alone caught, a Wels' catfish.

Both of those stats was to quickly change in what was to become a Dream Week's fishing for the lad from Wigan on Eagle Lake!

His first fish was a rod wrenching 51lb Wel's catfish! He followed that up with a superb 45lb cat along with two double figure kittens of 17lb and 11lb.

His first mirror carp smashed his previous pb and weighed in at 22lb, but that was not to last long, with two 25's, another at 27lb, then 28lb then on his last cast a great new pb mirror of 41lb 8ozs!

He has banked a new common carp pb, first with a 21lb fish, then one of 22lbs.

Accompanying Andy was complex regular Kris, who also had a good week, banking a new pb mirror of 30lb plus in his twelve fish catch.

The pair commented: " Great weeks fishing, yet again. No nights fished. Bait used was Mainline Cell and Pineapple pop-ups and also Monster Crab and Pineapple pop-ups. Back again next year!"
