Chris Reed banked one of Majestic Pool’s originals just as he was packing up.
The 30-year-old joiner caught Drop Scale at 29lb 2oz on the second morning of a 24-hour trip to the East Yorkshire venue.
Chris, who fished at seven wraps in open water, lost a fish just 20 minutes after casting out, but got another chance after a quiet night.
He said: “I was just about packed up and ready to leave when the rod screamed off again. After a bit of a fight trying to keep it away from the snags I managed to slip it into the net.
“It was a fish named Drop Scale at 29lb 2oz, which is a new personal best and one of Majestic Pool’s original A-Team. Happy days!”
