Brace of Roach Pit thirties

DURING a three night session on CWA Fisheries Roach Pit Marcus Howarth landed a brace of rarely caught thirties, in the form a 30lb 12oz common and a 30lb 6oz mirror.

The Dorset-based rod caught both fish using balanced 12mm Sticky Baits White Chocolate pop-up hookbaits over a bed of whole and chopped Vor-tex boilies, Oily Hemp and half a gallon of maggots covered in Krill powder.

He mounted his hookbaits on helicopter rigs consisting of 25lb Jel-E-Wyre hooklinks and ESP Curve Shanx hooks.
