Drawn at peg 45 on this partly froze lake he fished pole corn and meat over very few pellets at 13m, he had a stocky carp on his first put out and never looked back having a bite most drops in ending with over 30 carp – 5lb. Team mate and travelling partner Rob fished similar method the Craig with corn and pellet on the hook, having a few less fish but is biggest carp was 7lb.

A degree warmer in the water and the fish want to feed, Lee fished pole and caster at 12m on the deck and then up in the water for a superb net of roach -12oz and skimmers to the same loose feeding every put he soon had the fish queuing up to take the bait. Jason in 2nd fished the same method has Lee taking roach and skimmers but he was the only angler to catch a carp landing a 5lb mirror after a 15 minute battle on light gear.
