Five fish haul for Chilly

Targeting an area of the lake which received very little angling pressure paid dividends for Ian ‘Chilly’ Chillcott who topped a five fish catch with this 40lb 5oz mirror from CEMEX Angling’s Westhampnett Lake.

After spotting a couple of fish over a pre-baited area the Hampshire-based Fox International consultant introduced 2kg of 10mm and 14mm Mainline Baits New Grange boilies onto two marginal spots.

An hour later, he landed a 34lb 10oz mirror which was quickly followed by two twenties and a double before he moved to a new swim 100yds up the bank.

“I put out another kilo of boilies and two hours later my alarm burst in to life again. An incredible
fight followed which ended with a fish known as the Bad Mouth Orange in my net,” said Chilly, who mounted pop-up hookbaits on stiff-hinged rigs tied with 30lb Fox Illusion and size 6 Arma Point SR hooks.
