Big bream haul taken on sweetcorn hookbaits

Experienced all-rounder Adrian Eves used a heavy baiting approach to compile a sensational near-200lb bag of big bream last week.

Targeting a stillwater in the Colne Valley, the Surrey-based rod got through around 20kg of bait on his way to catching 18 fish between 8lb and 11lb 8oz, as well as a number of smaller samples.

All his fish fell to real and fake corn imitations, or 10mm boilies on the hair.
