Matt Timmins cleaned up with the capture of The Dustbin at 39lb 10oz.
The West Bromwich rod caught the chunky mirror, alongside another of 20lb 12oz, during a day session on the Avenue in Shropshire.
The 29-year-old said: “I fished the central bar at about 70yds and baited with about half a kilo of Retro Baits’ Meaty Garlic boilies with a matching pop-up on the hook.
“It was difficult to bait up because the wind was blowing a hooligan right in my face, but at 2.30pm the bobbin pulled to the top before screaming away. After a good battle she was in the net and on the bank having her photo taken.”
