15 June 2013. With the river levels rising rapidly and the fishing conditions getting very hard on a river in flood the MTC boys sat it out and carried on with their baiting and managed to prove what a quality bait they have here. Fishing with MTC’s Master M8 and Liver boilies combined with pop ups, liquids and stick mix from their range they managed 56 runs landing 42 of them up to the biggest of the week at 42 lbs 8 oz. Their tally was 5 x 40lb + 9 x30 lb + 10 x 20 lb + and 18 below 20lbs. What a week on a river that went into flood halfway through. Well done guys and a great result for you and the MTC baits.
