10lb 12oz Tench For Nate Green

There couldn’t be a better time to catch a big tench and a simple maggot feeder rig was the key to the capture of this 10lb 12oz specimen for Nate Green.

It was banked an hour after first light on an area 41 yards from the banks of a southern gravel pit.

Nate used a simple helicopter rig which was cast over a bed of red maggots, pellets and Dynamite Baits Hempseed & Snails. The winning hookbaits were hair-rigged worms fished on a size 12 hook and this is his third double-figure tench.

“I found a nice firm patch on the bottom over where I initially saw the fish rolling and used a Spomb to get the bait on the spot,” he said. This is my second biggest tench….chuffed to bits.”
