54lb 2oz Catfish
Here's Robert Mitchell with a 54lb 2oz catfish caught during an overnight session on an undisclosed 16-acre club water in Hampshire.
The session also produced a 16lb and 10lb mirrors prior to the Cat.
Robert says: 'The fish fell to a greedy-pig rig mounted on a knotless-knotted size 8 Korda wide gap hook, a ten-inch Cortex hooklink and a 3oz method feeder.
The bait was two 14mm Scopex Dynamite baits with the method mix of three kinds of groundbait and pellets, along with 1 kilo of hemp on top.
The fish was taken from 85 yards, between a shallow gravel bar and a weed bed.'
