One of the finest carp in Yorkshire has been landed at 48lb 14oz.
Josh Bean celebrated Easter by banking the coveted mirror known as Baby Baz from Tyram Hall Fisheries near Doncaster, smashing his personal best in the process.
It fell to a white 14mm Sticky Signature pop-up presented on a stiff hinge rig over a scattering of glugged 16mm bottom baits.
Josh said: “What with the weather that was forecast over the bank holiday, plus the full moon, it only seemed fitting for me to go down to the lake for the long weekend.
“It started off well with a few 20s over the first couple of days, but then come 6am on Easter Sunday I received the take I've been waiting for.
“After a battle I'll never forget, Baby Baz was sulking in the bottom of the net, topping off what has already been great start to the year for me.”
