Good grief Dave, don't you ever smile ? Catches a 19lb 4oz common and as a face on him like someone's just eaten his breakfast. 😆 Is ' Shoulders ' a noted carp then ? 👍 Lovely looking fish. Well done

Mick, you can just tell from that photo that he's a Carper at heart. :LOL: :LOL:
'Shoulders' is the largest recorded Carp residing in Oak Lake at around 41-42 lbs............

Great write up Chris. I mentioned it on a previous post but reading that seasoned match anglers like yourself can also struggle, gives hope to us lesser mortals. During our match, I remember @Godber who was pegged next to me & I think he only had three fish after three hours. He then started catching in the margins & finished 2nd with a great late rally. Although the place is stuffed with fish, it takes some working out & I'm dying for another crack at it.
