New boilies fool 36lb 8oz common

This chunky 36lb 8oz common was caught from a low-stock southern stillwater by Mike Hamer.

Targeting a hard clear area at over 100 yards range the 43-year-old Wokingham-based electrical contractor baited each rod with 1kg of Dynamite Baits’ new 15mm Crave boilies and offered snowman style hookbaits consisting of a 15mm bottom bait and a 10mm fluro pop-up over the top.

His baits had been in position for 15 hours when he received the all important bite and after a powerful scrap he beat his prize with an 18ins mono hooklink and a size 10 ACE Razorpoint MCS hook.
