Personal Best 6lb 10oz Eel For Jackie

The only bite of Jackie Proud’s first eel fishing session of 2017 produced this 6lb 10oz personal best.

She fished a roach head tight to an island at a local still water in Bedfordshire when the huge fish made an appearance.

It was beaten with 12lb mainline, a size 3 hook and a wire trace and beat her previous personal best that stood at 5lb 2oz.
