Big catfish doubles personal best

This 59lb catfish from Anglers Paradise almost doubled Matt Outen’s personal best for the species.

Having made the long journey from his home in Rutland to the popular holiday complex in Devon, he decided to enjoy a session on the Main Lake.

The scent of a popped-up pink squid and black pepper flavoured boilie hookbait proved too much for the large predator and after a 25-minute battle he had his prize – which smashed his old best of 30lb - in the net.
