Had a 90lb carp 5 around 40lb 1 at 15lb and a pacu never seen 1 before but they said biggest they had out in around 7 months and about as big as they get in here so chuffed with that around 40lb

the way the bait itself is presented mate. we would use the same bait for hussing or eeling but have it completely different - just a pic i stole off google but this is how we use them
