SHANE THOMAS had a dream trip to a secret lake when he took a pair of heavyweight carp.

Ditching the bait boat saw him cruise to success with a PB 44 lb mirror carp (below) – and then a day later took a 53 lb 6 oz giant (above) from the same spot.

The 44-year-old from Newport, Isle of Wight, used a baiting pole to present Sticky Baits Krill boilies over matching freebies and new Krill Clusters.
Shane said: “After catching a UK PB 44 lb the day before, I didn’t dream that I would smash that 24 hours later from the same spot.

“I decided few weeks ago to ditch the tech, and I sold my bait boat and purchased a baiting spoon.

“I waded along the margins and found a lovely hard spot under an overhanging tree.

“With the spot located, I loaded the baiting spoon and careful placed my rig in position.”
