Leon Bartropp continues winter campaign with 34lb 12oz mirror

Leon Bartropp’s red hot start to his winter campaign on a Kent stillwater has continued this week with the capture of this 34lb 12oz mirror.

The dark coloured specimen was highlight of a two fish catch for the local Gardner and Mistral Baits-backed rod and came just a week after he landed one of his target fish from the water in the form of a 39lb 2oz mirror.

Shortly after arriving at the 26-acre venue, Leon helped himself to a common of 27lb before landing the biggest fish of the session the following day.

Both fish were taken on Mistral 4Season boilies on combi-rigs constructed from 25lb Gardner Trick Link and 25lb Trickster Heavy knotless-knotted to a size 6 Covert Mugga hook.
