Mark Bryant

Team Trakker

Mark Bryant has been a keen carp angler for over 20 years and has caught carp on a variety of different waters across the UK. From small day ticket type venues to huge 120-acre low-stock lakes, he has trodden the paths and fished many different methods.

Mark owns and runs Baitworks, a fishing bait company based in the heart of the Cotswold Water Park. He lists his strong points as bait knowledge, versatility (floater fishing, long range/margin fishing) and working very hard at his fishing. These points have seen him catch consistently every year, although in recent years he has found himself gravitating towards low stock venues around the Cotswold’s, many of which being little or no publicity. Mark is currently trying to beat the 40lb mark and has come very close in the last 12 months catching five carp from 38lb 8oz to 39lb 14oz. Hopefully the big 40 is just round the corner… fingers crossed!

UK PB:
39lb 14oz
