At 138cm long, length for weight estimates place it at between 55-60lb!

Fredrik was fishing from a rowing boat on what he describes as ‘a small German lake’ when the massive predator snaffled is 21cm Abu Twin Tail lure in around 8m of water.

“It was an unreal experience and a dream come true, said Fredrick.

Fantastic work!
