One the otters spared

Kyle Woodgate’s decision to target a low-stock venue which had been hit by otters was vindicated when he slipped the net under this 28lb 2oz zip linear from the Cotswold Water Park.
In strong winds and driving rain the local rod located a silt patch 60 yards from the bank which he baited with Pilgrim Baits K2 boilies. There he presented a boilie tipped with plastic corn on a bolt rig consisting of a size 6 Korda Wide Gape hook and 10ins of N-Trap Semi-Stiff coated braid.
Kyle said: “The fish went 28lb 8oz, although weight is unimportant – thank God the otters never took this old warrior!”
