Hello Carpers:- First day out on the Carp hunt for me this year. Went to a small syndicate lake about 20 mins away (Coarse fishing's a no-no, season don't start for another 2 weeks) & all I can say is............Bread, Bread, Bread!!! To say they went crazy for it would be like saying that Mount Everest is "a little bit on the big side". I got there, tossed out 2-3 slices to get their attention & the frenzy started straight away, next, I hooked up the rod, out went a breadflake on the surface & I had my first run after 15 seconds. To cut a long story short, I had 13 runs over a 2 hour period (biggest was only a 4 pounder) & managed to bank 8 of them, other 5 snapped the line. Hope it's the start of a good summer!! Tight Lines & Good Luck.
