Our dedicated big-fish bait, SLK, seems to be such a massive edge on Berners Hall Fishery, as it accounts for so many of its bigger fish, most recently a brand-new PB for Nathan Geary!
Nathan takes up the story of another successful visit to the popular Essex day-ticket water: “After fishing a peg for 24 hours without any joy, I decided to move further down the bank into another peg.
“Feeling more confident in the new peg, I went in with a boilie-only approach and put out some SLK boilies that I had been soaking in Baileys for a week or so. The night was quiet like the previous one, but at around 8 o’clock the next morning, I hit into a massive back-drop and landed a 36lb 10oz mirror.
“I put the same rod back on the spot along with some more SLK. An hour or so passed and I looked out the bivvy to my right-hander cranking right round without the alarm sounding! I immediately hit into it and after a good fight managed a new PB of 39lb 6oz.”
