Adam Barrett’s Fishing Tips
I am back with another piece on carp on the lough, I met my friend Tony cotter last week and we decided to give it a go after the hassle that the lads had two weeks ago. We decided to flip a coin to who will have first choice and of course it was Tony that picked the right side of the coin. For the next few nights we pre-baited 1 kg of sticky bait boilies in the hope we could hold the carp in the area. That morning, Tony and I through out a half of a kg of boilies into each spot before we stared fishing for the day. Even do the temperatures were down we still believed we were going to catch a few carp. It was 5 hours before Tony got his first run, just as the fish was netted his other rod screamed into action. I had to put the carp into the carp sack to free up our landing net. With the second carp safely landed Tony checked his bait and put on another pva bag and casted out. As we put the carp into the sling to weigh it, his alarm screamed and the line was pealing off his reel. He ran for his rod as I put the carp back into water with the third carp landed I hoped we could weigh and take pictures before Tony caught another [JAMMY]

With the carp safely back in the water I was weighting for my turn that never happened unlike jammy with another carp bending his rod as the carp neared the net we could see it looked a bit better and as we lifted the carp out of the water you could see it had a good belly. We took the photos and then weighed the fish it brought the needle around to17lb
Tony 17lb common
I must admit Tony is very neat and careful when he puts his gear together and his boilies on the hair, his pva bags are the same size and when he puts out the free bee boilies he nearly hits the same spot every time. Well done Tony, I look forward to kicking you ass on our next session.
