Four cru­cians top 3lb

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

IS THE fish on the left the big­gest-ever cru­cian caught from the North of Eng­land? The 3lb 10oz spec­i­men was just one of four of 3lb-plus that were taken by Alan Mo­ran dur­ing a re­cent ses­sion at Hurl­ston Hall Fish­ery near Liver­pool.

The 68-year-old also put five more cru­cians in the net by float­fish­ing 6mm pel­lets over a bed of pel­let ground­bait close to the bank.

He said: “It was one of those rare days when find you’ve got the lake all to your­self. I de­cided to fish a spot that I’d had good cru­cian and roach sport from be­fore and sim­ply had one of those red let­ter days. I couldn’t be­lieve my eyes when each 3lb cru­cian made its way to my net!”

Chris Netto, of The As­so­ci­a­tion of Cru­cian An­glers, added: “From just look­ing at the pic­ture it is highly likely that this is a gen­uine cru­cian, al­though a proper scale count or DNA would of­fi­cially con­firm this.”
