15 catfish on one rod
CHRIS WATHEN and his father, Richard, had a fantastic trip to Churchwood Fisheries, in Essex, catching 15 catfish, topped by this
47 lb specimen.
The 23-year-old landscaper from Poole, in Dorset, caught ten cats, including the biggest, and Richard landed five.
Chris revealed: “All of the catfish were caught on the same rod from the same spot. I caught four on the first day, and because our other rods remained motionless, we took it in turns on the rod that was producing all of the action.
“The cats were caught on zig rigs fished over a big bed of halibut pellets, which we rowed out in a boat every few hours,” added Chris.
