Giant rudd landed from tricky Northern venue

This season we’ve had more rudd reported than ever before, and Dan Woolcott got in on the action with this beauty weighing 3lb 7oz.

Targeting a northern venue far from his home in Kent, the property surveyor was delighted to land the fish.

“It’s a tricky water,” he told us,

“but fishing over a bed of dead maggots, hemp and groundbait resulted in a bite on my maggot hookbait, presented on a short fluorocarbon hooklink on a helicopter set-up.

“As soon as I hooked it, the tell-tale headshakes and kiting confirmed it was the one I was after.

“It’s a great start to the season, and I’m really happy with this catch after all the effort that I’ve put into fishing the venue!”
