“This private lake I fish in Norfolk is stocked with a couple of sturgeon, so my brother Kiel and I decided to see if we could catch one for my 37th birthday. We targeted a gravel bar about two rod lengths out with roach live baits but after a few hours we’d not had a single take, so we gave roach dead baits a go instead.

“Within an hour of casting one out my rod tore off and I struck into this steam train of a fish which took off across the lake.

“This could only have been a sturgeon so I clung on for dear life, determined not to lose it as it swam all over the place.

“After an epic 30-minute battle this thing, which looked more like a dolphin than a fish, surfaced and Kiel managed to scoop it up.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday present, to be honest!”
