Finding a wider stretch of canal helped Laurence Birchall compile this impressive cut haul.
Targeting the Basingstoke Canal on the Hampshire and Surrey border, Laurence managed a trio of carp weighing18lb, 19lb and 23lb 2oz.
He said: “They were all from the Basingstoke Canal in Surrey and Hampshire.
“There's a big boat-turning section where a lot of them seem to hold up at this time of year.”
All the fish were taken on boosted CC Moore Northern Specials on spots that had been pre-baited with 10mm to 15mm Pacific Tuna boilies.
