His first fish was a rod wrenching 51lb Wel's catfish! He followed that up with a superb 45lb cat along with two double figure kittens of 17lb and 11lb.

His first mirror carp smashed his previous pb and weighed in at 22lb, but that was not to last long, with two 25's, another at 27lb, then 28lb then on his last cast a great new pb mirror of 41lb 8ozs!

The pair commented: " Great weeks fishing, yet again. No nights fished. Bait used was Mainline Cell and Pineapple pop-ups and also Monster Crab and Pineapple pop-ups. Back again next year!"
