STURGEON SHOCKER FROM TRENT AND BURE

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

THE na­tion’s river sys­tems are pro­duc­ing more sur­prises than ever be­fore, with the cap­ture of sturgeon from two of the UK’s most pop­u­lar wa­ter­ways.

Derek Ha­gley, from Es­sex, was shocked when a bar­bel ses­sion on the River Trent close to Fisker­ton, Notts, pro­duced this 14lb 2oz sturgeon, which took his 8mm hal­ibut pel­let hook­bait.

There was a sim­i­lar story for Richard Smith who hooked into a brace of the species while fish­ing the River Bure on the Broads.

A ground­bait feeder and mag­got at­tack helped him hook and lose a sturgeon a few hours into the ses­sion, with an­other fish be­ing landed on the very next cast. For a de­tailed guide to fish­ing the in­cred­i­ble Broads sys­tem, turn to our Where To Fish Ex­tra on pages 26 and 27
