We managed to fit a few hours in this afternoon, and headed to a spot I've been pre-baiting all week.
On route Dan and I talked about how we haven't seen an eight pounder yet this season. Ten sevens and 7 over 9lb between the three of us. Perhaps it was something to do with the the pollution a few years ago or a few poor spawning years?
So it didn't take long before Dan added one, SB4 fished in shallow water, a cracking fight and a 8lb 8oz barbel, pushing the challenge to over 200lb!
Two great fish in less than 24 hours and I was just the net-man, can't really complain after the week I've had!
