THE River Trent has continued its mega big barbel form by throwing up another fish over the 20lb barrier this season.

The recent giant was caught by twenty-six-year-old Brian Cam from Newark during an overnight session on the Nottinghamshire river.

He told Angling Times:

“I put some bait in just before dark and fished a Bloodworm boilie on a size 6 Long Shank hook with a kicker over the top.

“Just after midnight I had a savage bite and endured the usual epic battle which barbel give, that lasted for around 15-20 minutes. It was obviously a big fish and what a fighter she was.

“After taking the weight of the net off, the scales revealed she was 20lb bang on. A new PB, a great fish for any stretch of the Trent and not far off the record!”
