Target fish finally bagged at 46lb 14oz

This 46lb 14oz mirror is Kev Rogerson’s second forty of the summer and the one he really wanted.

The Sunderland angler tempted the chunk from close to a weed bed at 60 yards and said: “I’ve been after this fish for a few seasons now!”

The foreman driller used glugged DNA Baits’ S7 boilies over a scattering of mixed-size freebies. His successful rig was a blowback arrangement featuring a size 6 Drennan Continental hook tied to 25lb Fox Coretex coated braid.
