88lb catfish heads a 650lb Oakwood Park catch

The long drive to Norfolk’s Oakwood Park Predator Lakes proved more than worthwhile for Yorkshireman Lee Crowther after he banked no less than 650lb of catfish.

The South Elmsall based angler visited the venue for an overnight session, banking numerous mirror and common carp and cats, including four predators weighing 88lb, 80lb, 70lb and 72lb.

Lee caught all his fish on two hair-rigged halibut pellets baited on a size 2/0 catfish hook tied to 120lb braided hooklength and 60lb mainline.
