(This catch was taken before the close of the river season on March 15th)
HAVING smashed his barbel PB with a 16lb 14oz fish last week, Darren Clarke didn’t think his season could get any better… but then he went and landed this 17lb 10oz fish during a short session!
He was fishing the tidal Trent in cold conditions, with the moon shining so bright and high that he barely needed his headtorch.
The large barbel fell to a single boilie hookbait and, in Darren’s words, it had ‘a mouth you could fit an orange inside’.
