FOUR CARP FOR 265LB ON FIRST SESH USING THE BUG!
Simon Lawson’s first time out using The Bug has resulted in some monstrous carp over at Les Fortinieres in France, including a PB-smashing 79lb 8oz monster, which he braced with a 65lb 4oz mirror and then followed with fish of 62lb 12oz and 57lb 8oz.
Simon said: “I’m currently out at Les Fortinieres on my first time using The Bug, having usually been a Secret 7 and SLK user. On my third night here, I smashed my PB with a 79lb 8oz mirror. As soon as this one was just slipping over the net cord, one of my other rods was away, which resulted in a 65lb 4oz mirror.
“Then I followed those two up with two more fish, a common of 57lb 8oz and another mirror of 62lb 12oz!
“Four bites on The Bug for a staggering combed weight of 265lb!
“I was fishing with blow-back snowman rigs baited with trimmed-down 15mm Bug bottom baits tipped with trimmed-down 12mm pink Bug Half Tones pop-ups.”
