This 32lb 8oz common fell to Danny Baker on just his second session at a Lee Valley lake.
Tackling the Railway Pit at the Slipe Lane complex, Danny used ultra-short hooklinks in solid PVA bags to snare a total of three fish including the new personal-best common.
He said: “This was only my second session on the lake and having blanked on my first session I decided to change my approach, and I soon reaped the rewards.”
Danny filled his PVA bags with Mainline’s Spod and Bag Mix and fished a whittled-down Nash Monster Squid boilie topped with a piece of white fake corn on his 2.5ins hooklinks.
His rigs featured 18lb Korda Supernatural and size 6 Korda Kurv Shank hooks with a piece of silicon on the shanks.
