shock 7lb eel from kent stillwater

Samuel Kelly got the shock of his life when this 7lb eel devoured his worm hookbait intended for a big perch. 

The predator enthusiast from Kent targeted a local stillwater and used a light 8g drop-shot rod in conjunction with a feeder loaded with chopped worms in attempt to bank a new personal best stripey. 

Halfway through the session the light tip of his drop-shot rod signalled a powerful take, but much to Samuel’s surprise it was a fine eel that proved to be the culprit.
