Tony’s carp and cat feat

Angling Times (UK) - - NEWS -

THIS 70lb cat­fish sets a new per­sonal best for top spec­i­men hunter Tony Gib­son – and he backed it up with a 42lb 4oz com­mon carp.

The cat stripped 40 yards of line off a tight clutch af­ter pick­ing up two hair-rigged 21mm hal­ibut pel­lets. The Chair­man of the Northamp­ton­shire Spec­i­men Group was en­joy­ing a ses­sion at a day-ticket gravel pit in Northamp­ton­shire.

A crit­i­cally-bal­anced boilie hookbait then proved the down­fall of the big com­mon for the Nash, Dy­na­mite Baits and En­ter­prise Tackle con­sul­tant.

Tony Gib­son had a tough bat­tle with this 70lb gravel pit cat­fish.
