    1 x Lg paid for. Any prizes for being the first to pay?
  2. Dang the deadline - here's a bit of good reading for all concerned!! NEW YEARS MIRACLE? NOT just another fisherman's tale here - just beating all odds for ever happening. Sometime on New Years Day, one of my companions for the 4 day session we were on, Austin Anderson reeled in one of my leadcore leaders I had lost earlier last year - to a snap off with a fish, in snags. The loop of the leader was on his hook, and the safety lead had successfully ejected, leaving the insert still clipped to the swivel. The hook was rotted/rusted off, just where the bend would start. So - multiple reassuring things had happened (since that sad day when I lost the fish) 1/ The mainline had broken at the leader knot, meaning the fish only had a short leader to tow around. 2/ The lead had no doubt been what snagged, but the fish easily swam away when the line broke. 3/ Unbeknown to many, when a hook is left in a carps mouth for any length of time, they form a pustule around it - containing highly caustic liquid - causing the steel to basically melt. This was quite clearly the case here. I'm pretty sure it was around June 2016 that happened, as I had just started using longer anti tangle sleeves on certain rigs. So - who knows how long it took the fish to totally rid itself of the hook/leader, but -- the leader looked like it had been laying in mud for quite some time, so it's difficult to make that call. Only safe bet is - it was not longer than 6 months. This is really the first time I have experienced positive proof of the all the safety measures we use actually working, when having to snap off on a snag - with a fish hooked. We all know that sinking feeling when it happens - and I am very pleased Mr Anderson made that incredible catch (against all odds!) As for session success - not much to say, only Mr John Newbitt was with us - and we had a great, fun filled few days. NYrs 2016, I landed a couple of small fish (different venue) - and this little tyke was very welcome this year - an extremely healthy/pretty little hard fighting rascal. Now -- where's that 40 I have been chasing for a good few years?
  3. Frank - I got a 12.8 common at 5am, water temp 52F -- but, we had pretty much zero internet coverage, and John Newbitt was supposed to send it. I guess it never arrived! Brid.

  10. 2012 Atc Pictures & Stories

    A bit late -- but, it took biggest fish. PS, wonder why nobody bothered posting it? Probably just the same idiocy that won't see me fishing an event I've loved for quite some years. I know there has been bigger caught, but -- shouldn't this be shown in the records, so TPWD can keep up their amazing work telling us about the water, and all that's caught there? 2 years late, but -- it was fun!

    This slipped by as big fish for the event
  12. The Legend of Bob

    I never saw Bob, but know anything is possible. I had plenty of Carp to low 20's and hundreds of tench to around 2lbs there, -- it was fun float fishing for the tench. I did some research on the lake, and the tench were stocked by Italians, who like to eat them! A neat little water, and I miss not fishing there
