9lb 2oz tench and 12lb 12oz bream from Midlands gravel pit

Justin Grapes has taken full advantage of the rising temperatures and during two morning sessions landed tench to 9lb 2oz and a bream of 12lb 12oz.

Targeting a midlands gravel pit, the Norfolk-based specialist used long range tactics to bait a spot at 90yds with two kilos of hemp, corn and casters. The double figure slab then fell to two pieces of imitation corn fished on inline lead rigs.

A switch to fake casters proved more successful for the tench, and the Fishing Hut team member proceeded to land seven fish with the best two tipping the scales and 9lb 2oz and 9lb 1oz.
