Overnight success!

Kevin Bacon got a break in work to make the long journey from his Leicester home to fish overnight at Gingerbread Lake. He found a clear patch on the bottom and positioned his baits therein along with a sprinkling of freebies. A single run was enough to make his trip worthwhile when it turned out to be from a 33lb 2oz linear mirror carp.
