Two mon­ster eels in the same ses­sion

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

CHRIS Mason had ev­ery rea­son to smile when he banked this im­pres­sive pair of big eels.

Tar­get­ing a still­wa­ter in the Mid­lands, the species en­thu­si­ast from Wal­sall, West Mid­lands, landed fish weigh­ing 5lb 6oz and 5lb 13oz when he fished roach and lob­worm hook­baits just a few rodlengths from the bank.

The big­ger spec­i­men beats his pre­vi­ous per­sonal best by 5oz and was beaten by the 28-year-old when he fished rigs made from 60lb braid and size 4 hooks.
