Went to the specimen lake trying to catch some of the either large bream or large perch. 10lb line, 6lb hook length and size 12 hook just in case I hooked a big carp. Was using method feeder with 5 maggots on hook. No bites all morning then suddenly this big boy turned up!!!! 20 mins later had him on the bank. 24lb 12oz a pb for me by a long way. Happy as Larry . That was the only bite all day, strange as on the lake next to it lots of bream and skimmers were caught.
