Mark thats some nice carp you got there and tench, did you get the tench on boilies as well? Any rogue Bream also?
Where is that lake in Devon? I might have to visit it myself next time I'm down south, do you do any river fishing as well? I haven't been much at all since my daughter was born but seeing those pictures has got my fingers twitching again, If you like your river fishing then visit the river AVON at Christ Church the venue is called ROYALTIES FISHERIES. fantastic for CHUBB & BARBEL, if your ever up North then try The river TRENT at BURTON JOIST for carp.
I miss the fishing down south, especially the river CALNE, I used to live not to far from Farlos Lake,Little Briton and another one Green Gates I think it was called all in the West Drayton area, I used to be a member of the Bath road fishing club just of the M25 which had its own lakes both with full of carp.
Ive not done much carp fishing my biggest is a 15lb Common caught on a tutti fruity boiley, I caught a 9lb mirror on 24 hook 1lb bottom once feeder fishing for small roach that took some getting in, Ive caught a 9lb4oz Barbel at Royalties that just about went in the net,well I'm sure you have lots of fish tales to tell let me know

10-15 minutes, thats gotta get tiring, lol.
Carp, the best way to cook em, cause as you know, they are considered teh garbage fish and taste bad, but there is a way to cook them...
Smoke them for four hours on a hickory board. Add some spices, flavors, whatever would be good on the fish. And once you are done...







Throw away the fish, and eat the board. It's the best way.

Ha ha, very humorous!, but I dunno how Mark'll take that, although probably he just puts them back.
A guy just down the road from me has a very large pond with around ten ornamental carp, at least four of them as big as Mark's catch, & friends in Canada sent me a pic of their son, 6' 6" holding up vertically a huge salmon, god, that was big!!
