Kristof Cuderman: Carp Fishing in Slovakia

Back in May, globetrotting carp angler Kristof Cuderman went carp fishing in Slovakia for the very first time and as you can expect – enjoyed another memorable trip putting Dynamite products to the test. Here’s the full report from Kristof himself…

Kristof says…

In the middle of May I went fishing for the very first time in Slovakia – a country that I’ve had on my bucket list for some time to go and visit.

Last year I finally decided it was time and I booked a trip to Green Lakes. The owner of the lakes – Patrick –  is very nice person with a lot of angling experience and really knows how to care about the fish and the lake.

I went there with the goal to catch a 30kg + carp and increase my tally of countries I’ve banked 30kg fishing from. Thankfully, for the first few days of the trip I had Fox cameraman Jurica with me who was able to capture some amazing footage!

In the lake I targeted there are 3 fish bigger than 30kg and around 25 fish over 20kg – so although not a massive amount of 30s, there was still a chance of me catching one.

My session really couldn’t have started better because during the first day of fishing I managed to catch the second biggest carp in the lake! It was an amazing-looking common at a weight of 32.1 kg (70lb 8oz). I caught her on a 15mm Monster Tiger Nut Hardened Hookbait with a 12mm Pineapple & Banana Pop up on top.


It was really special and also very emotional day as you can imagine! This fish mean I’ve now caught carp over 30kg in 10 different countries and over 70lb in 9.

The rest of the trip was also amazing. I caught 17 fish over 20 kg (8 over 50lb). In the middle of the trip, the carp spawned with full power.

One day they were less active, but otherwise they were eating quite consistently. It was really another trip to remember.

All fish were caught using Monster Tiger Nut and Peppered Squid Boilies alongside a mix of pellets and particles as feed.
