Feeding action At the beginning of October I started a feeding action that will remain in my memory for a long time. I fed over two weeks at a quarry pond on an underwater headland. This spot had consistently produced very large carp the last few years. This groundwork and the catches of recent years increased my anticipation immeasurably....
Session number one Then the first fishing weekend of planned three sessions had begun. The rods lay perfectly. Only the weather still fluctuated from warm to cold and from cold to warm. It was not ideal, but I was eager to get on the water. So long before I had been looking forward. Two nights were planned for the first session. The first night went without a bite. The second day brought a nice mirror carp of 16.4 kg in the morning. [...]
The second strike The second weekend followed quickly. I had continued to feed my spot regularly. Already on arrival I recognized at least 40 coots and heron ducks over my spot.

I didn't feel any banging or big escapes. He just lay in the depth and swam slowly to where he wanted to go. But maybe it was also because I was still slightly drowsy. What I saw rising after the drill left me speechless. Was I dreaming? What a monster! A beautiful mirror carp showed up in the landing net. It weighed 27,5 KG. [...]
