This 41lb 10oz mirror provided Jonny Fletcher with a new personal best at Cambridgeshire’s Monks Pit.
The 26-year-old Peterborough angler tempted the fish, known as Gill Cluster, on the second morning of his session.
He said: “It wasn’t until it was 10 yards out that I could see it was the of the big girls. I was soon to slip the net under it and could see it was a fish know as Gill Cluster.”
Jonny used a Mainline Hybrid bottom bait tipped with half a pineapple pop-up.
