The fish, known as Rosie, was banked by Peter King at Wraysbury North Lake at a weight of 27lb 3oz.

Rosie was Peter’s target fish and was taken as part of a seven-fish catch in 48 hours.

He said: “To top it off I had one of my target fish, a 50-plus-year-old Wraysbury original called Rosie.

“I am the 11th person to catch her and I believe Pete Springate was the first. She weighed 27lb and a few ounces.

“I fished a gap in the weed at around 25 wraps and I baited it up with 6mm CC Moore Krill pellets and chopped Pacific Tuna boilies soaked in hemp oil and Amino Blend 365.”
