Steak Approach Fools Chub To 6lb 9oz

Middlesbrough’s James Hinley managed some quality chub just before the river close season using steak on the hook.

james-chub James uses 8lb Drennan Supplex main line direct to a size 8 Wide Gape Specialist hook. Float stops hold a Gripmesh Feeder filled with mincemeat in place and a juicy piece of steak finishes the setup nicely.

Over the last few sessions, he has landed plenty of chub from 4lb up to the biggest which weighed in at an impressive 6lb 9oz.
