Lee Snow 17lb 2oz Bream

After landing a bream of 17lb 1oz, Leicester angler Lee Snow went one better the following week, landing a fish of 17lb 2oz from a different water.
He’d headed to a Cambridgeshire stillwater where, when he planned his season, he originally aimed to target tench. But with the weather still cool, he decided to leave them for a few weeks whilst things warmed up, and instead went after the venue’s head of large bream.

Lee found a bar 120 yards out where there was 10ft of water, over which he baited with a few balls of groundbait laced with casters, corn, and hemp. He fished a helicopter rig over the top, using a stiff coated hooklink and a size 8 hook. The successful hookbait was an artificial corn and caster cocktail.

Well done Lee!
