ROGER’S FOURTH 50LB-PLUS FISH OF 2023!
We aren’t even at the end of March yet and Roger Bacon has now landed four 50lb-plus fish this year alone from the amazing Grenville syndicate water in Cambridgeshire!
Roger extended his incredible run of results by bagging himself no fewer than a dozen fish on what was a spur-of-the-moment session when he saw some big winds forecast.
After starting off with bags and receiving a bite on the first morning, Roger decided to commit to the peg he was in and introduced a load of 8mm and 12mm Bug freezer bait that he had pre-soaked in Bug Liquid Food. That day he would go on to land eight fish in total, including two 40-pounders!
Topping up the swim with another 8kg of boilies at night, Roger was awake just before first light the next morning in anticipation of a bite, and shortly after dawn broke all hell broke loose, with all four rods ripping off within 15 minutes of each other. It got so hectic, Roger had to call the angler next door to bring over a net.
Amongst that quartet of bites was a 50lb 8oz mirror, following on from the 60lb 8oz, 51lb 6oz and 50lb 4oz giants that have already graced his nets this year.
As is usual, Pink Peril pop-ups fished over a large bed of Bug did the damage for Roger.
Roger added: “There aren’t enough superlatives for The Bug; it is dominating the place at the moment. All the anglers who have got on it have seen their results improve.”
