CRUCIAN GOLD AMONG THE SILVERS
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.
