Biggest tench of the season banked

by Angling Times |

A SINGLE bite during a 48-hour session has produced the biggest tench so far this season – at 12lb 6oz – which fell to the rod of Leicestershire angler Trevor Pole during a session on a large Cambridgeshire gravel pit.

Fishing a spot at 80 yards, Trevor introduced a mixture of casters and maggots with a Spomb and then fished rubber casters on a heli-rig over the top.

After receiving a drop-back bite, Trevor lifted into what he was convinced was a bream, and because he was blinded by the sun, didn’t realise it was a huge tinca until the fish rolled into the net! It’s all-rounder Trevor’s third-ever tench over the 12lb mark.
