There really is no carp like it on UK shores – and this time it’s even bigger than ever before!
The magnificent fully scaled mirror that inhabits the waters of Manor Carp Fishery in the Test Valley has been caught by DNA consultant, Nicky Mills, at its biggest-ever weight.
Known as the Lord by the team at JC Fisheries, the breathtaking creature tipped the scales at a mind-blowing 63lb 14oz, more than 3lb heavier than when Lee ‘Mozza’ Morris famously met its acquaintance less than a year ago.
Not only was this a new record weight for the fishery but also for the county of Hampshire too!
Nicky opted to bait his spot heavily with a mixture of 8mm Bug and Switch boilies and Crayfish Mini Mix and Switch pellets, all of which he covered in arguably the most underrated liquid in the entire DNA range, Switch Liquid Food.
Nicky then fished a Milky Malt pop-up on a Ronnie rig over the top of the baited area and the rest, as they say, is carp-fishing history!
