Fishing the River Trent at night, he arrived at an area he knows holds good fish, and opted for a heavy duty dropshot rig, knowing the species loves a lure presented over their heads. After a few hours without a hit, he switched to a smaller and brighter pattern, which quickly brought a four-pounder to the bank. On his very next cast, Adam had what he describes as an ‘ungodly’ bite, with the lure being hit savagely as a big zander connected. It peeled line as it neared the bank, but eventually he coaxed a huge zander ‘the shape of a perch’ into the waiting net.
Well done Adam!
