Surface tactics score for 34lb 6oz common carp

There are few methods of catching carp which are more exciting than floater fishing, and one angler who can testify to this is Ben Germaine who caught eight carp, including this 34lb 6oz common carp, using surface tactics at Taswood Lakes in Norfolk.

The local 18-year-old fished tight to a set of lily pads on Heron Lake and used a pop-up boilie on a 10lb mainline to tempt his new personal best carp.
