ROGER’S SECOND FIFTY OF 2023!
The imperious Roger Bacon has notched up 50-pounder number two for the year over at the amazing Grenville Lake syndicate in Cambridgeshire, thanks to the capture of a 50lb 4oz mirror.
Sub-zero overnight temperatures and very little wind are usually a recipe for a blank, especially on a big pit like Grenville, but Roger thought he would try his luck nonetheless.
Over the top of the baited area, Roger fished his favoured Pink Peril pop-ups on long blow-back rigs, which were picked up by three fish the following morning, a fully scaled mirror of 32lb, another nice mirror of 36lb and the pick of the bunch, the 50lb-plus mirror.
After catching a 51lb 6oz mirror at the start of January, even by Roger’s impeccably high standards, that is an incredible start to the year!
