Cast to showing fish results in 29lb 8oz mirror

This chunky 29lb 8oz mirror was caught by Andy Lyons during a recent session on Culverts Mere in Essex.

The local rod had already landed  two commons of 20lb 4oz and 22lb 8oz from a large gravel patch when he saw a decent mirror show in front of the swim next door. He then baited the area with a handful of CarpBaitUK 14mm The Nail boilies and left it for three hours.

After seeing the fish show several more times over the spot he cast out his hookbait and another handful of freebies and only had to wait 10 minutes for his rod to rattle off.
