Justin McCann is a carp catching machine who seems to catch wherever he fishes with some notable captures too. Recently Justin returned from a week long session on the Mainline run Dream Lakes 2 in France, where during the week he shared in a haul of 49 carp to 48 lb using our 3-B boilies with matching 3-B ground bait. A very notable achievement for a lake that is run and fed by Mainline! Justin is very much ‘Old School’ when it comes to carp fishing but with a modern take on bait which again, make him a valuable asset to our team.

Remember there is no such thing as a wonder or miracle bait that will instantly catch you massive fish as some other companies would have you believe, but a good bait which The Hookbait Company pride itself on making after years of testing & tweaking to get it perfect, in the hands of a competent angler DOES give them a definite edge! Just look at the fish which have been caught using the wide range available as well as bespoke bait (my choice) from The HookBait Company.
