My plan was to catch 100lb+ of carp from the 5m line on paste and the margins on corn or bunches of dead maggots over groundbait/dead reds/corn feed.
What actually happened was that I struggled on the paste so switched to 6mm expanders and caught lots of crucians, unfortunately I was fairly sure I would need some carp to compete so I kept trying paste or double corn without much luck.
I had a look in the margin now and then but a bunch of maggots would always get snaffled by a small roach or a tiny carp, towards the end of the match I managed a few carp by fishing paste on the margin line.
I was using one of my new Sconezone V6 line through floats in the margin, they are very well made, extremely tough and occasionally they even go under!
I could hear AllanB to my right catching well at times and it sounded like he had some better size carp.
When the scales got to me there was a 57lb and assorted lower weights, my mostly crucians with a few carp went 33-4. This only got me 9th place (must try harder!) as can be seen in the match report HERE.
