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
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.
