A bite at last knockings produced this 6lb 8oz chub from the Staffs Worcester Canal for Ryan Hilton.
A change of lure just as the sun was setting produced the all-important bite after two hours without any action.
He said: “I attached a Savage Gear 9.5cm Firetiger Swim and Jerk lure and decided to have a couple of last casts before heading back to the car.
“The chub hit the lure as soon as it hit the water but at first I thought I had foul hooked a carp as it kited round the bay of the marina. Once I got it in I realised it was fish of a lifetime and beat my previous best for the species of 4lb 5oz.”
