Two personal bests in one trip for Chris

Chris Knotley from Norfolk is a regular aboard the Brightlingsea, Essex charter boat Sophie Lea, skippered by Lee Bolingbroke, but has only ever really enjoyed moderate success.

But that all changed on his latest trip when he bagged a stunning 11lb bass and a huge 32lb tope on fresh mackerel baits!

It proved to be a double celebration for Chris as they were both new personal bests!
