Lymm AC member, Darren Loseby recently visited Spring Pool in a bid to beat his previous personal best catfish of 16lb, caught from another water on the Lymm AC card, Founders Pool.
Darren arrived at the water on the Friday for his first session there since joining the club, although he did used to fish there when it was formerly a day ticket water and knew it could a be a tricky venue sometimes.
After a fishless night on the Friday, one of Darrens rods ‘tore off’ and he struck into what was obviously a good fish. It was only after the battle and drawing the fish over the net did Darren realise that he had clearly beaten his previous PB cat, and by some distance as the scales revealed a weight of 39lb!
Staying on for the night again, Darren had a quiet day, but in the early hours of Sunday morning, he was in again! This run resulted in a slightly smaller, but no less impressive, catfish of 33lb! A tremendous brace of cats in less than 24 hours with both fish falling to a half tin of luncheon meat topped off with CBS krill & liver boilies.
Good skills, Darren, a fine pair of fish indeed!
