Doncaster’s Tyram Fisheries yielded two twenties in consecutive sessions for John Smith.
The Worksop firefighter bagged a 21lb 8oz mirror followed by a 24lb 4oz common.
“I’ve been baiting the lake for the past few weeks and trying to get down twice a week and bait several areas round the lake,” said the 48-year-old.
John picked up the first fish from a lightly baited margin spot and returned the following week to bag the common on a single hookbait.
Both fish fell to Sticky Krill White Ones pop-ups mounted on hinged stiff rigs.
