Surface success for Lewis Porter

This new surface caught personal best 36lb common was the highlight of a four fish catch for Lewis Porter during a recent session at Bundy’s Pit, Cambridgeshire.

The Fox media manager spent two hours feeding floaters before the fish were feeding confidently, and a mammoth fight lasting 50 minutes followed before he finally netted his prize with the help of a Fox 9.86lb Zig and Floater hooklink and a size 8 SXC hook.

He said: “This common has avoided capture for the last five years so to bank him really is a special capture.”
