Trio of carp to over 30lb from thick weed

Many anglers find fishing in thick weed a daunting experience, but Matt Eaton reaped the rewards of casting straight in to the green stuff with a three fish catch during a 48 hour session on a tough southern stillwater.

The biggest of his trio of specimens was this 35lb 4oz mirror and this was backed up with other fish of 28lb 8oz and 24lb 12oz.

All of the Greys and Chub Academy member’s carp fell to Mainline Baits Cell boilies, and he told Angling Times: “This lake is very weedy with 50 per cent of the surface covered in it. Wherever I fish on the venue it is either up against, in among or over the weed so the fishing is very demanding.”
