Mick Brack­ley’s lat­est trip to the River Ebro in Spain proved a suc­cess af­ter he latched into this 168lb cat­fish.

The 8ft-long spec­i­men was one of a dozen cat­fish caught be­tween Mick and seven of his friends dur­ing four days of fish­ing on the Ebro – which also pro­duced seven carp to 48lb 8oz.

Mick landed the large cat on a Fox Ebro 4.5lb test curve rod with 130lb braid and a stringer hook­bait con­sist­ing of three 22mm hal­ibut pel­lets.

TOP TIP: “UK cat­fish are now on the feed in prepa­ra­tion for win­ter. Look for deep holes on your lo­cal still­wa­ter as this is of­ten where the cat­fish will be hid­ing in cold con­di­tions.”
