Lee Shulver banks 41lb mirror carp from Suffolk Water Park

Lee Shulver joined the forties club with the capture of this 41lb mirror known as Magical from the Big Fish Lake at Suffolk Water Park.

The 47-year-old from Ipswich headed to a quite area of the popular day-ticket water to get away from angling pressure and with the use of his marker rod was able to locate a clear channel between two large weedbeds at 70 yards range.

He had to wait until the final morning of his 48-hour session for the all-important take and following a 20 minute battle he landed his new personal best.

Lee’s winning presentation consisted of a critically-balanced 18mm Mainline Cell boilie mounted on a size 8 Fox Arma Point SSC hook and Korda N-Trap hooklink over a bed of hemp and boilies.
