73lb 8oz French PB on a PB!
WHAT A UNIT! This colossal Dreamlakes common of a whopping 73lb 8oz was caught by Andy Gowan, smashing his long-standing personal best by 14lb.
The fish, which is believed to be the largest fish in the lake, came at 5 o’clock in the morning, after snaffling Andy’s PB wafter hookbait that he had fished over a sprinkling of hemp and corn.
Andy simply commented: “Blown away is an understatement.”
