Two fish for 75lb-plus on test bait

Angling Times (UK) - - TACKLE NEWS -

ANEW test boilie due for re­lease next year pro­vided Ian Hirst with two fish for more than 75lb and a new per­sonal best.

Fish­ing at Grenville Lake in Cam­bridgeshire, the Bait-Tech sales and brand man­ager spot­ted fish at long range and baited heav­ily to tempt a 41lb 3oz mir­ror and another of 36lb shortly af­ter­wards.

He said: “After see­ing fish show at dis­tance I started the ses­sion at long range and in­tro­duced 5kg of the new boilie in 15mm and 18mm sizes. It’s cur­rently un­der test and due for re­lease early in 2017.”

He added: “Con­di­tions looked bang on as a new southerly wind had kicked up.

“The 41lb 3oz mir­ror came a few hours after in­tro­duc­ing the bait and the 36lb mir­ror fol­lowed after I had topped up the swim later the same day with another 5kg of the freezer boilie.

“The 41lb 3oz fish is my new UK per­sonal best.”

This 41lb 3oz fish liked Ian’s new boilies!
