Startops throws up 28lb 2oz mirror

Laurence Butters received a welcome wake up call from this cracking 28lb 2oz mirror from the 25-acre Startops Reservoir on the Tring complex in Hertfordshire.

Despite the freezing cold conditions the Buckinghamshire-based carper decided to put a bit of bait out and offered a white Baitcraft UK Tactical Super K pop-up over 2kg of Super K and Super Tutti 18mm freezer baits on a spot at 80 yards range.

He said: “There was still a bit of snow on the ground so I was delighted with this result.”
