Lake best caught on second session

On only his second session on a local water, Jack Matthews landed the lake’s biggest resident in the form of this 30lb common.

The Essex-based Taska junior consultant fished tight to an island snag which he baited with half a kilo of Nashbait Monster Squid Soluballs and 20 boilies.

The all-important bite came within 30 minutes of casting out and following a powerful scrap he netted his prize.

Jack had success with a snowman hookbait consisting of a 15mm bottom bait and a 10mm pop-up on a rig incorporating a Taska Line Aligner.
