On a hot day don't just sit behind your buzzers get up and stalk the fish as they bask in the sun
I had 5 carp including a crucian too 13lb
Whilst others had nothing.
Fish as close to marginal structure as possible for carp as they are fearing of the islands as everybody fishes too them just try to fish where others over look
When it's hot which is when I would go don't just sit behind carp rods. Get out and go stalking on the top next to the reeds and the margins and you will have more fish in your net
Pre bait spots before you go if your planning to fish on the bottom as it will catch you the biggest fish
The carp are targeted a lot on the bottom so fine tune your rigs to give you that small advantage over others
Sam just reading that u caught a 13 pound crucian and it made me laugh cause the record is only 4 pound so I think u might b exaggerating a little bit there
