44lb common tops 12 fish haul

This stunning 44lb personal best common was the best of a 12 fish haul during a four night session on the Golden Gates syndicate in Essex.

His impressive catch also included five thirties of 37lb 8oz, 33lb 2oz, 31lb 6oz, 31lb 4oz and 31lb as well as two twenties and four doubles.

All of his fish were taken on Sticky Vor-tex boilies and he used a total of 14kg over the duration of his session. The big common is the second over the 40lb-barrier which he has caught from the venue this year.
