Ten minutes to catch a whacker!

Justin Grapes proved that you don’t need to camp out for nights on end to catch big carp after he slipped his net under this gorgeous 26lb 4oz mirror carp just ten minutes into his session.

The 37-year-old marine engineer from Frettenham in Norwich, had only just started his first session of the season on the 29-acre Lodge Farm Lake on the Bawburgh complex when his alarms signalled a blistering take.

The fwas taken on a Nashbaits iC-1 pop-up boilie on a chod rig made from a Nash Fang Gaper hook and Korda Mouthtrap hooklink.
