45 lb 8 oz River Thurne, February 2009
Probably the most monumental pike capture from Norfolk, ever! John caught this fish, which had been seen before at lower weights, on half a mackerel from a tiny bit of the Thurne that I never even looked at when I was fishing there. I like some surprises, and this was certainly just that. Though the Thurne has had big problems in recent years, there is still hope that one day it will produce another really big pike.
