Following Solar Tackle team member Ignace De Roeck’s incredible 24-hour session last week (as reported in a previous e-mail) in which he landed 10 carp from a tough water, including two mid forties and a 39lb mirror, he’s only gone and bettered it!
Heading back to the same 4-hectare syndicate water in Flanders, Belgium, this time the experienced big-carp angler landed 15 carp from 18 takes, which saw 5 thirties and a forty grace his unhooking mat, once again all coming during a 24-hour trip.
As with his previous session, the Belgian angler fished over a bed of Solar's new TunaMino test baits using a snowman hook bait and landed carp of 39lb 2oz, 38lb, 41lb 8oz, 35lb and a couple of other low thirties too.
“It was hectic, I could barely eat or sleep for the whole trip,” explained Ignace. “I even had two double takes, and when the carp were on the mat the TunaMino bait was being vented everywhere. It seemed the more I fed the more I caught. Out of the three I lost, one felt like an absolute monster, but even so, what a trip. I thought that the previous trip was one of lifetime, but to then follow it with these result, I still can’t quite believe it.
“The lake holds around 70 carp in total, so to land 25 in just 48 hours (35% of the total stock) is incredible.”
