Stuart Morgan had the guest session to dream about when he visited Wingham Carp Lake. His first fish was Black Spot, the biggest in the water, and bottomed out his own 60lb scales. Weighed on a set of 120lb Reubens the needle hovered on the 60lb mark, so an honest Stuart called it 59-14.
Stuart becomes the 6th member of the Wingham Super Virgins Club, those whose first Wingham carp goes 50lbs+.
The successful offering was a 16mm Sticky Baits Krill dumbbell fished over 25 Spombs of boilie crumb, Krill pellets and sweetcorn. This was put out at a range of 70 yards, just over a bar in 7ft of water.
The 49 year old from Gillingham had to wait until 4.30 on his second and final afternoon before getting a take. The huge mirror weeded him up four times, but each time slackening off tricked the fish into swimming free.
Stuart added a 36-14 mirror the following morning that was 2ozs over his previous PB.
Stuart revealed, "Before the guest session I joked I was going to catch Black Spot, but I never expected such a dream to come true!"
Wingham creator, Steve Burke, commented, "This is Black Spot's highest ever October weight. Goodness knows what she'll weigh in spawn next May!"
