Hiya everyone,
Mines 26 1/2 lb common caught to long ago to admit to, You'll all know how long I've been carping if I tell.
The guy who say's that his "biggest is only"
where's the rush my friend, it may take a while to catch a double or what ever size you consider to be acceptable as a personal best but, take a bit of time and "smell the roses on the way"
:) :) :) :)

16lb 4oz

But landed on 3.5lb line with a very old float rod right under the tip of the rod !!
16 mins to land..i think
WATCH IT BEND...AND BEND SOME MORE !!
carp caught in this way are worth quite a few caught with strong rods and buzzers !!
this season though...allcyprinids WATCH IT !
my PB will be bettered this season !!

Mine's a 15lb 8oz Common, but I took my 13 year old daughter fishing yesterday and she caught a 21lb Mirror in the margins. Not bad on 6lb line.

Newt:
14lb 13oz common (I ain't no carper really).

John S - maybe that is why we mod this thing. Can't catch a biggun. :D

But as you know, it's not the quality, but the quantity that matters
