Trent prebait pays off with fantastic barbel haul

A two-day prebaiting campaign paid dividends for big-fish angler Mitchell Godfrey, who landed eight big barbel topped by this 14lb 4oz specimen.
The Nottingham-based angling guide fed around four kilos of hemp, a kilo of boilies and a kilo of big pellets into a spot on the River Trent before casting a Bait-Tech Poloni boilie tipped with a PVA bag of half boilies into his swim. Using 10lb mainline and a 12lb Gardner Trickster hooklink tied to a size 6 Kamasan B175 hook, Mitch was into fish from the first cast, landing two other doubles during his overnight session.
