30lb Bream Brace For Dai Gribble

A brace of bream for a total of 30lb caught by Dai Gribble tops another great week for the species.

Some of the biggest names in big fish angling are out there targeting big bream at the moment and former Drennan Cup champion Dai Gribble is just one of them.

The fish weighed 15lb 13oz and 14lb 3oz, came from a Midlands stillwater and were taken by the specialist angler when he fished a combination of boilies and artificial maggots over a bed of pellets at 60 yards.

“There aren’t many bream in this water but I just had a hunch that I’d be in with a chance,” Dai told Angling Times.

“The biggest fish fought like an absolute demon,  it took me four attempts to get it to the net and to be honest it gave a much better account of itself than any of the tench I’ve caught so far this season.”
