CATCH­ING big bream in a weed-clad lake was no chore for Adam Riches, who rowed a boat out to drop his hook­baits into a clear patch and bag this 15lb 10oz per­sonal best.

The 29-year-old carpenter out­foxed the su­per-slab on a tricky south­ern gravel pit.

“The water is full of snags, and us­ing a boat was the only way to get my baits through to the fish,” Adam ex­plained.

“I found a clear spot 130 yards out and baited it with a par­ti­cle and pel­let mix, be­fore row­ing out to drop my rigs baited with popped-up fake corn.

“Af­ter a slow spring and only one 14lb-plus bream so far this sea­son, I was ab­so­lutely chuffed with the re­sult.”

Two other bream weigh­ing 10lb 1oz and 10lb 14oz were landed to make this a ses­sion to re­mem­ber for Adam.
