40lb 3oz mirror caught from marginal spot

Neil Mitchell proved you don’t need to fish at range to catch big carp, with this 40lb 3oz specimen caught just 10yds from the bank on the Milton Abbas syndicate in Dorset.

The stunning mirror known as the Pretty Fish is the fourth different forty which he has caught from the eight-acre venue, and it came to a CC Moore Odyssey XXX hookbait soaked in Feedstim XP.

He also landed several doubles and a mid-twenty during the productive session.
