Top six share mega haul in Tylers Common match

There were further signs that commercial carp shoals have fully awoken from their winter slumber when the top six of the latest match at Tylers Common shared over 850lb between them.

Topping an experienced field on the Horseshoe Lake at the Essex fishery was Steve James who managed to land an astonishing 183lb 10oz of carp.

The Ockenden Bait and Tackle ace managed to net fish to 8lb on corn down the margins from peg 11, while runner up Jason Collins of the Browning Wickford squad fished long with pellet to tempt 175lb 10oz into the net.
