40 fish in a session and your moaning. I just been an on a F1 lake and not caught half that and those fishing for silvers barely caught
Id stop moaning or stop til the 16th. Most commercial fisherys are carp oriented as thats what pays the bills

I can understand that it can get frustrating if your specifically targeting other species. I would call that a good days fishing.
but what would you call it if it was exactly the same every day, day in day out non stop.

Glad this thread has been started tbh - must be all of two days since the last one and was beginning to think that we would never discuss it again.
What happened to the good old days when we would just be happy repeatedly discussing what Maxima line is better than Maxima line and why are all rods not called Acolyte

I think the op is moaning about the lack of variety. Fishing these carp lakes is OK for a booster after a few dire sessions, but given the choice of 2 lakes, one predominately carp and the other no carp, I know where I'd fish, even if it was going to be a struggle.

Yes but why would you go to a carp lake and target the little roach, perch etc💁‍♂️💁‍♂️In a match, or even if I’m pleasure fishing I want to catch something I know is on the end, them little silvers are just nuisance fish.......I honestly can’t understand anyone who goes and fishes what is in essence a carp puddle,and then comes on here and rants that they can’t stop catching carp 😂😂😂Don’t Fish Them -simple

I agree mate. I remember fishing a commercial years ago that was supposed to have good perch in. Couldn't get passed the carp. Lesson learnt?
Cracking fishery though, not knocking it at all. I'm well over due a session on a commercial.
