Teenager Adam May smashed a long-standing record when he banked this 70lb 12oz catfish from the famous Anglers Paradise complex.
The 14-year-old rod made the trip to the Devon complex and baited up at the bottom of a slope in a prolific peg on the Main Carp Lake.
Just after dark had his left-hand screamed into action and after a 15-minute battle the new venue best was in the net.
Adam said: “My 60lb scales instantly bottomed out and my dad had to go and borrow a pair. This is the greatest catch of my career to date.”
