Two sessions lead to two personal bests

Lightning struck twice for Paul Bennett when he broke his personal best for the second time in as many sessions at his Cambridgeshire syndicate water with this 43lb 8oz mirror carp.
The Stockport rod set up in the same swim where he took a 41lb 4oz pb on his last outing and laid down a good helping of Madbaits Pandemic and Nutz boilies over a large area at 140-150 yards.
Two rods were fished with pop-up hookbaits on IQ D-rigs and the third with a critically-balanced bait inside a solid PVA bag.
These tactics accounted for mirrors of 17lb 4oz, 26lb 8oz, 26lb 4oz and 43lb 8oz.
He said: “I’m still in angling heaven. To get one pb in a season is mega but to get two in a month – well, it just doesn’t get any better.”
