Matthew Fernandez proved that crucians are on the feed right now when he banked this splendid pair weighing 4lb 2oz and 3lb 10oz. The bigger of the two sets a new personal best, and was part of a catch from a southern stillwater that had produced a 4lb 2oz fish for Matthew only the day before.
Drennan inline Method feeders baited with a combination of imitation casters and boilies were fished over the top of a mixture of groundbait and particles. “At midnight on the first night the caster rod screamed off, resulting in a superb 30lb mirror carp,” said the Dynamite Baits and Cygnet-backed angler.
“To bank the big brace of crucians and another fish weighing 4lb 2oz was a real achievement for me, and a great start to my 2017 crucian campaign.”
