Hi my name is Mark and i have recently moved to Lake Geneva from the UK.

I have been a carp angler for 20+ years and fished all over the UK and France with a PB of 50Ib Common and 49Ib Mirror, i have bags of experience fishing high pressure waters targeting single fish and just as much fishing in shoal type situations with the aim of picking out the larger lunkers.

I am keen to get into the carp scene here and would like to hook up with someone or a group of you so that i can get some bankside social time with the aim of me getting better understanding of the rules and regulations that you have over here, what works, what doesnt etc.

I am 42 years old and a very serious angler, so you dont need to worry about ending up with a jerk on the bank with you for the day that you cant wait to get away from.

Thanks

Mark
Mirror 47Ib
Leather 37Ib
Common 50Ib 10oz
Catfish 156Ib

gentlemen, Lake Geneva is a very clear deep lake in southern Wisconsin(just over Illinois border). Directly between our local winter hot spots. One of the Milwaukee rivers(Winter League venue and others) and the Chicago River are equadistant of where Mr. Pinner lives. He will not go carp deprived. ;)
