Craig Gregson, 18lb 5oz Trent Barbel

“The fish was in battle for 20 minuets”
The River Trent has been in great form this season, throwing up big barbel after big barbel. Species enthusiast, Craig Gregson was the latest to enjoy what this immense river has to offer, landing this 18lb 5oz fish on a meat hookbait. He’d been struggling all day so decided to change his tactics, putting on a longer, 3ft hooklink. After this, he was into the powerful fish that battled for 20 minutes, going on 10 long, powerful drives before finally slipping into the net.

Well done Craig!
