All the time, effort and sacrifice Joe Brophy put into trying to catch this particular fish were eventually rewarded over the weekend, when the ‘King of the Pool’ finally succumbed to his net.

Residing in a small pond, the 36lb 12oz common known as the Unknown was a new personal UK personal best for Joe, who admitted the capture hasn’t quite sunk in yet.

Joe tempted the fish from a gravel patch the size of an unhooking mat just off an island, where he offered a Switch hookbait over a few handfuls of crushed and chopped Switch boilies, hemp and corn.
