Winter bagging at Puddledock Farm

The rise in temperatures stirred the fish up at many commecials over the weekend and Jay Martin took advantage during the latest event at Puddledock Farm to net a winning 167lb 12oz.

After selecting peg 11 on the Snake Lake out of the draw bag, the Dartford rod decided to use pole and breadpunch to the far bank and was able to tempt carp to 12lb from the Essex complex.

That was over 100lb too good for second place Ian Hutchinson who was able to take 63lb 8oz on similar tactics from peg 66.
