cru­cians hit the bank

AN EARLY start was worth­while for Stuart Heasty when he landed this mam­moth 34lb 8oz pike at 5am.

Tar­get­ing a water in South­ern Ire­land, Stuart used a sar­dine on a float-leger set-up to tempt the preda­tor. Stuart got the take af­ter only half-an-hour’s fish­ing, and the fish put up an almighty scrap.

“The rod was dou­bled right over and all I could do was hang on with both hands as line peeled off the reel. I knew the fish was some­thing spe­cial, and it’s a per­sonal best that I’m sure won’t be beaten,” he said.
