89lb catfish tops Catfish Conservation Group fish-in

This 89lb catfish was the biggest fish landed during a recent Catfish Conservation Group fish-in at Oakwood Predator Lakes.

Ten members of the group took part in the event at the Norfolk fishery but it was Stephen Maybank who banked the heaviest specimen using a perch livebait on a Cat-O-Copter rig incorporating 60kg braided mainline and a 60lb hooklink.

Catfish of 72lb, 35lb, 24lb, 22lb and 20lb, along with a double figure pike were also landed by other members during the three day session.
