Mick and Alan fished Alder for a week from Saturday 27th April and here is a round up of their feedback;
Details of your catches: 28 Carp, 2 x 40′s up to 42.3, 4 x 30′s up to 31, 19 x 20′s.
Your best tactics/bait/rigs: Bottom baits tipped with plastic corn or double 14/15mm boilies. I was trialing baits for Custom Baits Ltd and their peach/black pepper boilies out-fished Mainline Cell, it was only when we ran out (had 5kg) that the cell come into its own.
General comments: The fish in alder are some of the prettiest, hardest fighting carp i have had the pleasure of doing battle with, they don’t know when to give up, amazing stunning fish.
We were up against it before we arrived as the temp dropped 20′ over the 2 days before we got there, continue reading…Tags: Alder
