4lb 1oz Crucian for Ed Matthews

A pole float presented with a float rod was the secret to the capture of this 4lb 1oz crucian carp.

The fin-perfect specimen sets a new personal best for Ed Matthews from Shropshire when he grabbed a couple of hours fishing a Sutton Lake. It sets a new venue record and fell to an 8mm Sonubaits Oozing boilie hookbait.

“A pole float offers great bite detection when it comes to catching shy biting fish like crucian carp,” said Ed

“I just had a few hours fishing before I picked the kids up from nursery and I’m so glad I did.”
