40lb common in 77lb overnight brace

An overnight session gave Ash Bailey a fish he had been chasing for three years as part of a 77lb-plus brace.

The pick of the pair was a 40lb 4oz common, which the Dynamite-backed angler had set his sights on when he first joined the southern syndicate venue.

The fish came at 3am and was quickly followed by a 37lb 2oz mirror.

Ash timed his session to coincide with a warm south-westerly wind and used maggot hookbaits over a bed of Dynamite’s new Naked Pulses & Particles glugged in Sweet Tiger liquid.
