Lincolnshire's biggest common landed

During an overnight session on a Lincolnshire stillwater Aaron Hill banked the county’s biggest common carp in the form of this 41lb 12oz common carp.

Targeting a plateau at 30yds range, the 19-year-old fooled the rarely caught specimen with a Denham Bait Innovations Inception X boilie hookbait over a scattering of freebies.

He beat his prize with a size 8 Korda Kurv hook and a 20lb N-Trap hooklink.

“The lake holds less than 20 carp and I caught most of the stock over the summer so I was glad to finally nail my target fish,” he said.
