Wyreside's 'Big Un' out at 30lb 12oz

This chunky 30lb 12oz mirror, known as The Big Un, fell to Jon Neafcy at Bantons Lake on the Wyreside Lakes complex.

The 41-year-old Wigan angler tackled the Lancashire water using Mainline Activ-8 boilies during a weekend session.

He said: “The fish had to be coaxed out of the dense weed and came after a couple of blanks while finding my feet on the water.”

Jon, who is an experienced predator angler sponsored by Pike-Pro and Baitbox, used a Sonik SKS rods and a Daiwa Sportsmatic reel.
