Peter Walker had the session of a lifetime recently when he banked a 130lb-plus brace of fish during a 48-hour session at Oakwood Lakes near Thetford.
Topping Peter’s catch was an enormous 103lb catfish that put him through an intense battle just as he was packing up his kit.
Earlier the same day Peter had caught a PB carp of 32lb, so was already on cloud nine when the beast struck.
He told Angling Times:
“The session got off to a quiet start, but out of nowhere I managed to hook a pb carp of 32lb on the second day.
“I would have left a happy man, but the trip was about to get even better.
“On the first day I had positioned a double piece of mackerel next to a reedbed and just left it.
“While I was packing away something picked up the bait and went screaming across the lake!
“I could tell it would beat my old catfish PB of 68lb and after a gruelling fight I finally landed this beast – all 103lb of it!”
