Matthew Forshaw made the most of the few hours he had spare before jetting off on his honeymoon, the result, a Mercers Park 40!
Harry Charrington – 48hrs at Grenville
14th August 2018
On just his second ever visit to the Cambridgeshire big fish syndicate Grenville, Fox’s Harry Charrington had a blinder of a session. He landed a total of ten fish with five over 30lb and the highlight of the session being a chunky 40lb plus mirror.
When we spoke to Harry about the events of his session this is what he revealed: “It was my second ever session on the venue and was the first time I had ever taken my girlfriend fishing with me, she must be a good luck charm, with 10 fish landed and five over 30lb the session turned out to be one of my best ever! The bites came in two hectic feeding spells on the Saturday morning and Sunday at around lunchtime whilst I was packing up, and I’m sure I would have caught more if it wasn’t for having to pack up and head off.
Over the course of the 48-hour session I exhausted a total of 10kg of Krill boilies, this was fed whole and crushed with a good helping of Pure Krill Liquid and Cap Oil. Over the top of my simple yet effective spod mix I fished 14mm Signature Squid pop-ups on Hinged-Stiff rigs, resulting in the downfall of fish weighing; 12lb, 24lb, 27lb, 29lb, another 29-pounder, 30lb, 31lb, 33lb 10oz, 35lb 11oz and the highlight of the session, a 41lb 2oz mirror!”
