This 44lb ghost carp saved Martin Pick from a three day blank during his latest session at Wellington Country Park in Berkshire.
The Leicestershire-based Trakker consultant fished three different swims during the trip in a bid to try and track down the fish, and he eventually latched in to one just 90 minutes before packing up.
He said: “I was fishing 95 yards to a hard clear area in around 4ft of water. I baited with half a kilo of DT Baits Cold Water Mix with Green Beast frozen 15mm boilies and cast a 15mm Supa Fruit pop-up over the top.”
Martin mounted his hookbait on a reverse combi-rig tied with 25lb Korda Mouth Trap and 20lb N-Trap Soft with a size 6 Korda Choddy hook.
He added: “I have a feeling this is one of, if not the biggest, ghost carp in the country.”
