Linear's Small Plated banked

Karl Palmer has caught one of the most prized assets at Oxfordshire's Linear Fisheries.

The Small Plated, once one of the most elusive fish on the whole complex, tripped up at a weight of 41lb 12oz from St John's.

No wonder it's sought after when it looks like this!

The fish, which has previously gone years without capture but now seems a little more frequent visitor to the bank, was caught alongside a 29lb common.

Karl, 31, presented a DNA Baits Pink Peril pop-up over a large bed of sweetcorn and DNA NuttaS boilies.
