Daniel Woolcott’s 10lb 12oz tench and 11lb 11oz tench

Daniel Woolcott continued his incredible big fish form this week too, taking a remarkable 20lb-plus brace of tench weighing 10lb 12oz and 11lb 11oz.

The astonishing pair came from a 28-acre water with only handful of tench present. Daniel said: “I must have the fishing gods watching over me at the moment, to bag a pair of tench this size is beyond anything I ever expected from this water.”

Both tench were caught at 30 yards range on red maggots presented on a size 12 Super Specialist hook tied to an 8lb fluorocarbon hook-link with a 50g groundbait feeder. Daniels successful bait mix consisted of dead maggots, Dynamite Baits Grubby groundbait and frenzied hemp seed.
