New lake-record common at Monument One

Jamie Moorhouse set a new common-carp record at Monument One when he slipped his net under this 43lb 14oz fish known as Houdini.

The fish came as part of a hectic session in which the Wolverhampton angler caught seven fish in total including a 30 and three 20s.

Houdini is the biggest common in the lake at 43lb 14oz

Jamie used a solid PVA bag filled with the fishery’s own Edge boilies, paired with a Sticky Krill Tuff One hookbait.

He was fishing from peg two at the Shropshire day-ticket venue and cast towards a hard spot at 8.5 wraps’ range.

His rigs were constructed from stripped-back coated braid, with size 4 wide gape hooks.
