Lee Guest had only been fishing for half an hour when he latched into this cracking 40lb common.
The 40lb 12oz specimen – a fish known as Knowsley – was caught from Monument One.
The RH Fisheries venue in Shifnal, Shropshire, is part of Rob Hales’ portfolio and is fishable on a day-ticket.
The common is the 13th different 40-pounder the 15-swim lake has produced since October.
Lee was fishing from swim eight at the far end of the lake and baited up with the fishery’s own Edge boilies.
He presented a Nash Citruz wafter hookbait over the top on a D rig.
