15lb 7oz bream banked in short evening session

A dedicated prebaiting campaign paid off for Geoff Collins who caught this 15lb 7oz bream during a short session after work on a Northants stillwater.

The local specialist targeted a clear area at 40yds range which he baited with a light scattering of pellets, corn, hemp and boilies. The specimen slab then fell to a sweetcorn hookbait fished in conjunction with a groundbait feeder on a rig tied from supple braid and a size 10 Drennan Specimen hook.

“It was my usual quick session approach as I only fished between 7pm and 11pm, which goes to show that you don’t have to spend days on the bank to catch the really big fish,” Geoff told Angling Times.
