TRENT TOP OF CRAIG’S SPECI LIST
Big barbel, zander and brace of pike from famous river
RAIG Woolhouse became the envy of thousands of anglers when he banked four dream fish in one incredible session. plus a 10lb bonus zander!
It was a red-letter session that unfolded when the specimen hunter from Leicester fished two rods for predators and one for barbel on a club-controlled stretch of the in-form waterway.
“It was an amazing session and probably one that I will never repeat,” he said.
“I was into a 12lb barbel, and a huge pike followed it right up to the landing net. Later that night I had two twenties, but I really don’t think either of them was the one that chased the huge barbel into the bank.
“I’d have been over the moon with just one of these fish in a session, let alone what I ended up with, because it can take years of time and dedication to catch river fish like this.
“To say this was a red-letter day would be an understatement,” he added.
All his barbel were taken on legered tuna boilies, and his zander and pike took either roach or bream deadbaits.
“It was an amazing session, probably one that I’ll never repeat”
Craig’s best barbel went 13lb 10oz. This 10lb zander topped off an amazing trip. The bigger of Craig’s two pike at 23lb 12oz.
