Cru­cians blow in on a warm wind

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

THIS pleas­ing pair of big cru­cians was caught from a stillwater in the North West.

Ko­rum-backed spe­cial­ist Gary Knowles was cel­e­brat­ing af­ter slip­ping the net un­der cru­cians of 3lb 9oz and 2lb 13oz af­ter a late change of plan.

“I was in the garage, get­ting my gear out for a preda­tor fish­ing ses­sion, when I felt how warm it was and de­cided to go for cru­cians in­stead,” Gary said.

“It was a pain, be­cause it took me a while to sort all the tackle out, but it was so worth it. An­glers in my neck of the woods usu­ally have to travel across three coun­ties for fish like th­ese, and that’s why it means a lot to me be­cause true cru­cians are rare.”

The spe­cial­ist from Cheshire tar­geted a syn­di­cate wa­ter and struck gold when he fished Method feeder tac­tics with a Sonubaits 6mm Ooz­ing Pineap­ple boilies.
