I decided to have a couple of hours on the lake this afternoon. Dropped a rod with scopex and maize over a couple of kilos of pellet into Heaven and just under an hour later, I hooked into this beauty weighing in at 37lb 4oz.
Just looked back through photos, and this was last out in August 2016 at 26lb 4oz, so a very nice weight gain of 11lbs in 11 months!
Due to the amazing colours and the dark scale three quarters along the middle of the body, this carp has been named 'Jupiter'. Once to watch out for in the future!
