‘Bait and wait’ pays for second giant barbel
JUST 24 hours after smashing the River Nene barbel record, Gary Johnson, returned to the same waterway and slipped the net under this 13lb 5oz specimen.
The Peterborough & District Angling Association member, whose record 18lb barbel featured in Angling Times last week, decided to visit a different stretch of the waterway. There he prebaited a place where he had spotted fish rolling.
Leaving the barbel to feed, Gary returned the next day and tempted his latest giant on a DNA Baits Secret Seven dumbell boilie fished in conjunction with a small PVA bag of broken boilies.
