Gerrard O’Sullivan well and truly smashed his personal best with this 7lb 8oz chub!
I cast the pellet rod onto the prebaited area and the peperami rod a couple of rod lengths upstream and instantly received a couple of small taps. I sat patiently for a further 10 minutes before the tip signalled a rattle before it went round and I was in. After a crazy battle this old brute of a chub popped its head up and soon graced my net leaving me in total shock as I’d only landed chub to around the 2lb mark previously. I could tell this was a special one what some might say “fish of a lifetime” so I left it for 20 minutes to rest in the net as I awaited my friend Dan to do some catch shots. At 7lb 8oz I have smashed my pb and am now mega keen to get back out on the river hunt for a big barbel.”
