Hi guys I've recently join this forum for some good learning curves and to meet some good guys into same hobbie as me! Well I'm Shaun I'm 26 years old I have fished for years but never on the carp side been properly fishing since September 2016 with carp gear, first nighter didn't catch but in morning I stalked a shol
Of fish wishing 20 mins bagged a 10lb then my uncle invited me for another night session he's exsperienced and had 7 runs lost 4 and bagged three first fish out was 26.3lb then my second was 20.08lb and then 12.02lb within 24hr session was well impressed and chuffed this gave me great insentive towards this side of the sport/hobbie. Went to east delph on 28 December caught a 23.02lb in cold weather lol woke up and was about 1inch of ice on lake lol then about two weeks ago went to another lake and bagged 14lb carp.
I'm slowly building my gear up as we all know it's not a cheap hobbie/sport, but in a overall I think I've achaived a lot within good 5 months.

Any one recommend any good lakes in Cambridgeshire area??

Will do mate, i will definitely try to get down on the gower next year with the caravan, i used to walk along the rocks by the church as well, must be honest i never really did much as i had the girls with me so couldn't concentrate on what I was doing, maybe next year.

Hello mate, welcome to the forum, I've spent many a good holiday on the gower black hills caravan park by the air field, i used to go fishing at oxwich bay, went on holiday there every year for 12 years i used to call it paradise and have a lot of very fond memories, I keep saying I'm going to go back as I have a touring van, I remember when the marina in Swansea was just like a scrap yard in the 80's, and by the 90's it was beautiful
MUST GO BACK.

That's a good size bass mate!! My P.B is 6lb 2 and I was chuffed to bits with that! My dads caught big fish from all over the world but his 10lb 4 bass off the beach in Folkestone is his all time fish of a life time. Can't beat live prawns or peel crab as bait 👌🏻

Hi Guys....
I'm 54 and from Swansea and have been sea fishing for round 40yrs,mainly for Bass,but my back don't allow me to clamber over the rocks like i used to so i thought i would have a go at this carping malarky innit☺.....i've only been 3 times(2 lakes)and have caught 2 carp,1 @ 10lb 8 and the other @ 12lb 4,they give heck of a scrap dont they lol......i'm well and truely hooked(scuse the pun lol)
I'm not working atm so have had to buy cheaply but have put a few things together to get me by until i can upgrade.i also make my own boilies and pop ups to save a bit of cash.Not looking to fish specimen lakes,just the small commercials that are around my area..
Nice site by the way....
Cheers Guys

Hi All Just starting up again after 20+ years out. I did match fishing before but this time I prefer the chill out of carp fishing. Getting some gear together ready for the next year. Hoping to pick some tip up from this forum

Thanks for having me
