Mid-40 common caught for first time in a year

This impressive mid-40 common made its first appearance in 12 months at a big southern pit.

The fish, which is the biggest common in Rockford, weighed in at 45lb 4oz for Danny Holland.

Danny, who caught it during a four-night session at the Hampshire venue, said: “It’s Rockford’s biggest common and very elusive – this is its first time out in a year.”

The pond construction worker added: “I fished a bottom-bait stiff rig over a few kilos of Sticky Krill boilies with a 16mm hard hook bait.”
