Using twitter to report carp catches in Torbay

I'm going to trend a new Twitter hashtag that I hope people will use to report carp catches in the Torbay and surrounding area. So if you've caught some nice carp and would like to share some photos and information with other anglers them please use the following hashtag on Twitter. #CarpCatchReportTorbay

If you've not used Twitter before, or you've got an account and don't know how to use it then it's quite simple. Write your message which can't be any longer than something like 147 characters (that's approximate). By the way, that doesn't include the photo, you can write your message and include your photos. Now the important thing to remember is to put in the hashtag at the end of your message. The hashtag will be included in a number of characters.

So the message could read something like this: Had a good day fishing at Town Parks in Paignton, caught 10 carp up to 10lbs #CarpCatchReportTorbay

I should add that you don't necessarily have to capitalise each word in your hashtag, as long as you have the words in the correct order with no spaces with the hashtag at the beginning your message will appear in the right place.

    Hi there, actually, I should do a quick update on Charlecombe pond as I have fished at this year with a degree of success. I went for a quick session in mid April on a fairly mild day. I fished a small match boilie on my semi-fixed ledger rig using my feeder rod and caught a mice common carp around 10 lbs

    I was talking to a guy from the Newton Abbot fishing Association and he was telling me that they had a problem with otters down there. Anyway, they have put some more carp In the pond in the last few months apparently. I've only fished it once I caught one fish. I will be going down again to try during the summer to see how good it is.
