Gareth’s Astonishing Haul of Specimen Ouse Chub

2012-13 Drennan Cup holder Gareth Goldson with a real old warrior of a Chub weighing 7lb 4oz, one of three 7lb+ specimens caught in just two mornings!

Gareth underlined his intentions to hold onto the trophy for another term by recording a sensational haul of Chub from the River Great Ouse – which also included fish of 7lb 5oz, 7lb, 6lb 14oz, 6lb 12oz, 6lb 10oz and some other smaller ones, in addition to the lump pictured above; incredible Chub fishing!

After a largely frustrating Winter’s Chub fishing due to the inescapable conditions, Gareth really made amends over the course of two morning sessions. He used a Hardy Supero 12ft Feeder rod to present Dynamite Baits Source Boilies on size 10 Drennan Boilie hooks, with a simple link ledger and 10lb Double Strength hooklinks.

I knew with near perfect river and weather conditions the fishing was going to kick off big style in the last week of the season and I couldn’t have been more right” Gareth told us.
