Three fish hit on single hookbaits

This 31lb 10oz mirror was the highlight of a three fish catch for Neil Mitchell during a 10 hour session on the Milton Abbas syndicate in Dorset.

The 37-year-old self-employed builder cast to a clear area in open water at 45yds and also landed fish of 29lb 4oz and 27lb 7oz during the productive trip.

All of his fish were taken on Richworth N-V pop-ups which he mounted on chod rigs tied with Rigmarole Camh20 hooklinks and size 6 Drennan Continental Boilie hooks, and fished over half a kilo of free offerings.

He said: “The lake has a good record of producing fish in the winter, but even so I was really pleased to get three in such a short space of time.”
