The ‘Piking Pirate’ Gord Burton has continued his run of form, landing this immaculately marked specimen of just over 20lb.
The impressive specimen was the best of a 15-fish haul made by the Stourport-based predator expert from a loch in southern Scotland.
All of his fish fell to suspended deadbaits fished in 25ft of water.
He said: “The big one put up a tremendous fight lasting well over 10 minutes. Hopefully my run will continue over the coming weeks and I’ve got a feeling something special is on the cards.”
