Solar Tackle team member Thomas Mascha has landed 10 carp over 40lb since January 3rd this year (that’s just 11 weeks).
Working full time as a baker in northeast France, most of Thomas’ fishing is restricted to day-only sessions, which means that planning and pre-baiting play a big part in his approach, and this latest triumph was no different.
Choosing a shallow area of a local gravel pit, Thomas pre-baited over an area where there are signs of new weed growth using a mixture of particles and crushed Candy Floss boilies, all of which he soaked in Candy Floss Mega Big Shot Liquid.
Fishing during daylight hours only, Thomas used a 14mm Candy Floss pop-up fished with a light lead and flicked carefully to lie on to of the weed. In the early afternoon the only bite of the day produced this deep, hard-fighting common.
