Big fish catching machine Kristof Cuderman continued his quest to catch 70lb carp from as many different nations as possible with a carp fishing trip to Germany…
The Slovenian ace recently headed to a 10 hectare lake close to Straubing in Germany and recorded some memorable catches including fish to over 25kg. Scroll down to see how he got on..
Kristof said: « One of my goals is to catch a carp over 70 lb in Germany. I went there this year, to a lake I have never been to before. This time I went fishing alone and I was super excited for the trip. The lake is a beautiful old gravel pit, a home to some impressively big carp. The heaviest of them weighs around 37 kg. »
« The lake is down to 10 meters deep and is covered with weed in the shallow areas of 4 meters or less depth. It is the kind of lake I love the most. I fished two rods around 4 to 5 metres deep, on the verge of the weedy area. I set my third rod in the shallow water, approximately 1.5 metres deep. I found a clear spot in the weed and set my bait there. The water is so clear there I could easily see my rig and boilies at the bottom. » I used CompleX-T boilies and some Hi-Attract, Squid & Octopus boilies as feed along with a mix of Dynamite pop-ups on the hook.
« The first 30 hours were very successful as I managed to catch three carp up to 17 kg. One of them was a stunning 11,4 kg koi carp (pictured above). I sure wasn’t expecting to get zero takes in the following five days. But patience paid off and I landed in some nice carp in the last six days of the session. The final result was four carp over 20kg and setting my new German PB with a 25,3 kg cracker!
