Mega Rayne Lodge haul taken on a top kit

The temperatures might be dropping but Gary Burton proved you didn’t have to start casting for the horizon just yet when he landed 148lb of carp on just a top kit during the latest event at Essex’s Rayne Lodge.

After noticing a lot of activity close to the bank while setting up on the Top Lake, the venue backed rod decided to fish at just 3m with corn over hemp and was able to fool carp to 3lb almost every chuck.

The victory was made even more memorable for Gary after he revealed it was his fourth win on the trot at the venue.
