Huge squid bait lures double-figure bass

Double squid mounted Pennell style and fished downtide lured this superb 12lb 3oz bass for Herne Bay, Kent small-boat angler Barry Seabrook.

He was fishing from his own boat, Jessica Blake, off the coast of his hometown, and said: “I beat it on 12lb class gear, which gave it a chance to scrap really hard.

"I took it ashore to get weighed at the Herne Bay AA headquarters, where it caused quite a stir.”
