Short-trip crucian success

Crucian carp enthusiast Chris Turnbull visited Hinderclay Lakes for his latest assault on the species, and it ended with this 2lb 4oz specimen going into the net.

The Norfolk-based angler made the short trip to the Suffolk venue with a group of friends, where he floatfished meat at short range.

Several other members of The Association of Crucian Anglers joined him for the trip, with more than 40 fish being shared between the group.
