First thirty in months for Haydn Hoskins

The dip in temperatures hasn’t stopped the fish feeding at the Surrey’s Frimley complex, as this mid-thirty shows.

Local angler Haydn Hoskins snared the 35lb 6oz common during an overnight session and believes the fish are still eating readily.

He said: “I was pleased to have this fish as I have been having success on overnight sessions but hadn't landed a 30lb-plus fish in several months.

“The red belly of the fish and how solid it was tells me they are still clearly feeding hard. The only question is how long will it last.”

Haydn baited with about a kilo of frozen 15mm NashBait Scopex boilies and fished matching bottom baits on his rigs
