It was a case of ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ for River Trent regular Mitch Godfrey after he slipped the landing net under this 15lb 10oz barbel.
The 48-year-old from Nottingham tempted the specimen on a legered Bait-Tech Poloni boilie glugged in Poloni Oil, the same tactic he used to land a 16lb 6oz barbel just two weeks ago.
His latest fish came as the sun was setting at the start of a session which also resulted in the capture of a 14lb 8oz barbel, his seventh of the species over 14lb in less than a month’s angling.
Mitch runs an angling guiding service on the River Trent.
