13lb 5oz fish tops haul of pit bream

Ian Hannaby finished his bream campaign in style with this impressive 13lb 5oz specimen. Targeting an East Midlands gravel pit, Ian fished 60yds out and used 10mm boilies in chocolate orange and shellfish flavour as bait.

To get the bream feeding, Ian introduced a mix of crumbed boilies, maggots and pellets. The mix proved to be very successful, because Ian landed another six fish to double figures alongside the big specimen.
