Grant Robinson has wasted very little time getting amongst the A-teamers since joining the Quarry syndicate in Essex, tempting the Big Lin at 40lb 10oz on only his second session!
The 38-year-old tattoo artist said: “After setting up on a big group of fish that were sheeting up, I flicked a couple of light leads around to gauge what was on the bottom. I got lucky and found a nice gravel area in amongst the feeding fish!
“With my hookbaits deployed, 10 Spombs of bait were introduced into the swim and at 2am the middle rod signalled a slow take. After a short fight, a piece of Quarry gold hit the net, the Big Lin at 40lb 10oz.
“An A-team member on just my second session since joining. I’m made up!”
It was Secret 7 that did the business for Grant, namely a 15mm Secret 7 Hard Hooker tipped with a trimmed-down pink S7 Half Tones pop-up.
His bait mixture comprised chopped and crumbed Secret 7 boilies that he had soaked in Sweet Cayenne Pepper and dusted in Krill Meal.
