Surprise 14lb barbel from Great Ouse when carp fishing

A session targeting carp on the River Great Ouse produced a worthwhile surprise for angler Paul Andrew when he landed this fine 14lb 11oz barbel on a boilie.

The Olney & Clifton Fishing Association member, was fishing a wide deep stretch at Olney in Buckinghamshire when the huge fish tore off with his hookbait during an early morning session on the waterway. Witness, Dave Partridge said: “It was a shock because he caught it in an area which is not known for barbel while targeting carp but I’m sure he will be happy with this capture.”
