400-MILE ROUND TRIP REWARDED WITH A FORTY!
A 400-mile round trip for a session on Monks Pit proved well worth the effort and mileage for Dave Gostelow, after he hit into another of the Cambridgeshire venue’s forties, plus a string of back-up fish!
Following a blank first night, Dave moved to a central swim and baited an area with a mixture of 12mm, 15mm and 18mm Bug boilies, hemp and corn, all smothered in Bug Hydro Spod Syrup and Betastim.
Fishing snowman presentations comprising 15mm Bug Hard Hookers tipped with 12mm PB pop-ups over the top, Dave would go on to bag Rusty’s at 42lb-plus, two 32-pounders, three twenties to 29lb and a mid-double.
“The wet pack-up and 200-mile drive back north didn’t seem so bad,” added Dave.
