80lb com­mon heads amaz­ing haul

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

TEVE Kitcher broke his per­sonal best an in­cred­i­ble four times in a sin­gle day as he racked up a mas­sive cross-Chan­nel haul at Les Teil­latts.

The Isle of Wight an­gler kicked off the in­cred­i­ble day with four fish in an hour to 53lb 9oz, be­fore land­ing a 75lb 8oz mir­ror later in the morn­ing.

A 58lb 8oz com­mon fol­lowed that af­ter­noon, be­fore an 11.30pm run re­sulted in the Dig­i­tal Com­mon at a huge 80lb 2oz.

“At the start of the week I re­ally would have set­tled for one fish over the 50lb mark,” said Steve, “but to have done that with both a mir­ror and a com­mon and then to­tally blown them away with a mir­ror of 75lb and a com­mon of 80lb re­ally make this the ses­sion of a life­time.”

Steve, who came third in the weekly draw for swims at the French venue and plot­ted up in The Cres­cent, used CC Moore Live Sys­tem bot­tom baits tipped with halved Dairy Supreme pop-ups.

He ended up with 15 fish for the week, in­clud­ing a 62lb mir­ror and a to­tal of three fifties and two for­ties.
