Anthony Tanti made it two 40s in as many weeks when he slipped his net under this 42lb 12oz common from Farriers Lake.
The 54-year-old kept loosefeed to a minimum during his 48-hour session at the 32-acre venue, which is located in the Cotswold Water Park, Gloucestershire.
He put his faith in a Mainline Baits Cell pop-up boilie, presented on a Ronnie rig with a small PVA stick of matching boilie crumb attached. He also scattered a small handful of 18mm boilies around the area.
Anthony, who targeted a hard gravel patch next to a weedbed at a range of approximately 60yds, caught the fish during a brief rise in temperatures.
