CRUCIAN GOLD AMONG THE SIL­VERS

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

JOHN Lewis was left shak­ing after putting this colos­sal 3lb 12oz crucian in the net.

John was fish­ing a south­ern club wa­ter with his son, and was catch­ing plenty of bream and roach be­fore the large bar of gold put in an ap­pear­ance.

He told An­gling Times: “It was the big­gest crucian I’ve ever caught – I’m still shak­ing now at the thought of it!”

The fish was lured on three red mag­gots fished on a size 14 hook over a bed of blood­worm ground­bait.
