Gary Moore banks 'Bloater' at 37lb

GARY Moore has enjoyed an impressive run of form on the Milton Abbas syndicate in Dorset, banking two fish of over 37lb in recent weeks.

The Southampton-based carper hasn’t been put off by the winter weather and landed his first specimen from over a bed of CC Moore Odyssey XXX boilies.

He then returned to the venue a few days later and this time fed a mixture of XXX and N-Gage boilies with an air ball pop-up offered over the top to tempt another chunky mirror of 37lb 5oz.

He said: “This fish is known as Bloater and when you see the size of it on the bank it is easy to see why!”
