Enormous bream ends blank run

Low pressure brings change of fortunes for Adrian Eves

17lb-plus bream ends blank run

by Angling Times |

Hampshire angler Adrian Eves capitalised on a sudden and dramatic drop in air pressure to bank a superb female bream weighing 17lb 15oz.

The Fox and Dynamite baits-backed specialist had been struggling for several weeks on the southern pit he’s targeting, but that all changed when a low-pressure southerly swept in, sending the barometer reading down to just 991mb.

Fishing a solid PVA bag containing active stick mix, casters, maggots and pellets, alongside a Shrimp and Krill dumbbell wafter hookbait presented on a soft braided hooklink, Adrian received the only bite of his session at 4am, bringing the run of blanks he’d been enduring over previous weeks to an end with what is his second-biggest bream ever.
