Ben Freeman has been enjoying a rich vein of form on the Essex Manor – this 38lb 8oz mirror known as The Devil Fish the latest specimen to grace his net during a recent 24 hour session on the famous big fish venue.

The Romford-based angler targeted a spot at 40yds which he baited with a scattering of Nash Amber Strawberry boilies.

He then found success with a bottom bait straight out of the bag which he presented on a combi-rig constructed with a Nash Missing Link hooklink and a size 7 Fang X hook.
