What a carp! This 51lb 8oz brute of a common has been landed by Solar Tackle team member Thomas Mascha. Incredibly, this fish follows captures of 5 forties to 48lb+ and two thirties, all landed by Thomas since January 3rd on day-only sessions.

A baker by trade, Thomas’ sessions are limited to days only in between shifts at work, but at this time of year that plays into his hands nicely. Combatting some pretty tough, cold winter conditions lately, all of Thomas’ January captures have come in the early afternoon.

Heading to a gravel pit close to his home in northeast France, Thomas baited an area with plenty of sweetcorn and a few handfuls of crushed Candy Floss boilies, all of which he soaked in Candy Floss Mega Big Shot liquid.

Presenting a Candy Floss pop-up over the top, a slow take just after midday, which was the only action of the session, produced this impressive common.

Watch this space, as we’re certain you’ll be seeing more from Thomas before January is through.
