The Brute landed at 51lb

AN impromptu change of swims paid off in style for Billy Shackleford when he landed the most sought after resident of a southern club water weighing a massive 51lb.

The venue regular moved in to a freshly vacated swim despite being unsure on whether to fish the night or not.
His eventual decision to stay on proved to be a wise one, because the following morning he received the all-important bite from the specimen mirror known as The Brute.

His setup included an Oxford Carp Bait MC Nut boilie with an ESP Strip Teaze Two Tone hooklink and Syncro XT mainline.
