Colin Hebb 7lb 12oz Chub

Colin Hebb couldn’t quite believe the size of the chub he landed on a recent River Trent session.

Colin told us “I headed down to the trent and found a lovely looking swim with some nice overhanging bushes for cover. I started to bait up around 2pm but didn’t get the bite until 9:30, as soon as I struck into the fish I thought it was a barbel the way it was fighting. When it surfaced near the net I could see it was a big chub. Thankfully she went into the net without much hassle, I put her into the weigh sling and couldn’t believe it when the scales showed 7lb 2oz which is also a new personal best”.
