Catfish Success For Jack

Jack Crook has been having some great success with catfish on a local Oxfordshire stillwater.

The Drennan employee’s last two specimens from the Club Lake at Orchid Lakes have weighed 48lb and 50lb 8oz on the scales.

Both fish put up a great fight and were tamed on a running lead setup with a 30cm ESP Shock Braid hooklink tied knotless knot style to a size 2 Big T hook.

Jack’s all-important hook bait is the tail section of a mackerel.
