Kingsmead 1 is the latest venue where The Bug seems to be dominating big-carp captures at the moment, as here’s yet another A-teamer from the RK Leisure venue courtesy of Roger Bacon.
Just last month, Roger topped an 18 fish catch with the Scarred Mirror at 54lb 12oz, backed up by a 46lb 6oz mirror, and he has now added another forty to his tally in the form of a 43lb 1oz mirror.
Roger had to be patient and waited a couple of days before he could get in the area where the fish were residing. Once in the swim, out went a mixture of 12mm and 15mm Bug boilies that he had pre-soaked in Bug Liquid Food, along with a few particles. He then fished over the top with snowman rigs baited with Bug Hard Hookers tipped with golf ball-sized bags of Bug crumb or Crayfish Mini Mix pellets.
The fish dropped down on to his spot on the second night and this belting VS mirror was Roger’s reward.
