Minne de Swart - 38 Carp In 6 Days

Minne and Wendy de Swart: Minne de Swart - 38 Carp In 6 Days

By Minne and Wendy de Swart on 15 August 2020

During these strange and difficult times, a visit to Oakview was a welcome break and didnt she deliver! Oakview always knocks it out of the park on accommodation, location and fishing.

The highlight of the week, other than the wife's birthday of course, was chatting with Martin - asking about a linear around 20lb that I had seen a picture of a few years back. "Was it still in there and had it been caught recently?" It had not! About half an hour later I was texting Martin to say that it was now caught and weighed 25lb 4oz. Always nice to tick a fish of your wish list.

As we head back to the UK and 14 days quarantine we realise how lucky we have been to get here this year and our thoughts go out to those of you who miss your 2020 Oakview visit during these difficult times. Thank you Oakview and see you in 2021.

Fishing Tactics:

Fished 6 days Sunrise to 6pm. Complex T boilies over pellet. Bottom baits tipped with corn to margin spots and tree line.

38 Carp - 7 x 40's, 6 x 30's, 15 x 20's and 10 under 20.
