Three named fish for a 127lb to­tal

Angling Times (UK) - - CARP NEWS -

ALAST-gasp 48-pounder helped Pete Everett to land three fish for a com­bined weight of 127lb in a 36-hour ses­sion.

The 37-year-old snared a trio of A-Team mem­bers from Fryerning Fish­eries’ Main Lake in Es­sex, topped by the large com­mon known as the Mom­mon at 48lb.

He also caught No Name at 41lb 4oz and Char­lie’s Mate at 37lb 12oz.

The re­gional train­ing man­ager said: “These were new per­sonal bests, and all the fish were stun­ning. I was blown away with the looks and con­di­tion of them.

“I caught the Mom­mon just min­utes be­fore pack­ing up af­ter chuck­ing a bait on top of a show­ing fish!”

Pete, who is also a part-time char­ter boat skip­per from nearby Ben­fleet, had been fish­ing just 30 yards out to a reed-lined bay.

He baited reg­u­larly with a scat­ter­ing of home­made boilies and pre­sented a match­ing hook­bait over the top at the pop­u­lar syndicate venue.

The Mom­mon – top of the bill at ex­actly 48lb.

No Name came out at 41lb 4oz.
