New pb after collecting exam results

New pb after collecting exam results

Fred Harris celebrated getting his GCSE results by going fishing and banking a new personal best.

The 16-year-old from Dorset went to local day-ticket site Todber Manor and caught this 31lb 4oz mirror.

He told Carpfeed: “Having received my GCSEs on Thursday I decided to fish a quick overnighter on a local lake and caught a new pb at 31lb 4oz.

 This scaly mirror gave Fred a new pb at 31lb 4oz

“I baited an area with a cloudy spod mix to draw the fish in as I was fishing with the wind coming towards me.

"The setup I used was a PVA stick with an inline lead as I like the fish to feel the lead straight away because I believe it gives the best hookhold.”

Fred, who also caught a smaller carp, used a snowman presentation with a CC Moore Pacific Tuna hookbait and a piece of fake corn.
