29lb 14oz River Trent common carp landed

This cracking 29lb 14oz common carp was caught by Adam Tilford during a session on the River Trent.

The Nottingham-based 30Plus-sponsored rod used a snowman hookbait presentation consisting of an Individual Baits PinaColada bottom bait and pop-up on a fluorocarbon hooklink.

This was cast towards the stanchions of a bridge in conjunction with a 6oz feeder filled with whole and chopped boilies.

The all-important bite came shortly after he made his first cast and the fish gave a good account of itself before dropping in to the net 15 minutes later.
