■ STEVEN CASTLE set a new pike PB with this
24 lb 1 oz ‘snapper’ from Civil Service AS's Sheepwalk Lake, at Shepperton, in Surrey.
The 31-year-old roofer, from nearby Chertsey offered a 19 cm Savage Gear 4play perch with a spinner in front of it.
Sheepwalk was the place where the current tench record was caught, a
15 lb 3 oz 6 dr giant by Darren Ward back in 2001.
