Current Luton AC mirror carp record holder Eric Jones returned to the South Lagoon where he caught last season’s 34lb 15oz specimen and had a 13 fish hit using his own Red Eric Baits, catching commons of 26lb 6oz, 21lb 12oz, 18lb 8oz, 17lb, 16lb, 15lb 12oz, 15lb, 13lb and 12lb with mirrors of 24lb 12oz, 23lb, 22lb 4oz and 19lb.
