Bat­tle ends with 14lb 4oz Trent bar­bel

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

WEIGH­ING in at 14lb 4oz, this stun­ning bar­bel sets a new per­sonal best for Le­ices­ter’s Bruce Hobbs.

Af­ter an arm-aching 20-minute scrap on the banks of the River Trent the huge fish was fi­nally in the net af­ter it picked up his dead mag­got hook­bait.

He’d been feed­ing an area of the river in Ne­wark with ground­bait, hemp and dead mag­gots, and it was a tac­tic that paid off hand­somely.
