Solar Tackle founder Martin Locke has landed 33 carp, including 11 forties, 3 fifties and a session biggest 60lb 8oz common, on his latest session.

Fishing at extreme range, 230 yards, from swim 19 on Rainbow Lake, Martin concentrated on a boilie only approach with Candy Floss and TunaMino baits.

Martin explains: “There were extreme temperatures, with up to 37°C in the shade, but odd takes were coming even in those temperatures as they seem to do with French fish.

“I started off using Candy Floss boilies, but got through it quicker than I thought I would, and so switch to using TunaMino roughly halfway through the session, and that increased the action.

“From the start I presented a TunaMino bottom bait tipped with a Candy Floss pop-up on an Unleaded hook link and Stronghold 101 hook, set-up multi-rig style, and fished over a bed of freebies, topping the swim up after each take.
