THE River Trent’s silver fish sport isn’t what it used to be but there is still some amazing bream action to be enjoyed if you can find the shoals.
And that’s exactly what Wakefield angler Wayne Ibbotson did when he fished the famous Farndon stretch, as he put together a fantastic bag of fish totalling nearly 300lb!
Fishing long range groundbait feeder tactics with worm and caster on the hook, Wayne tempted no less than 69 bream to 6lb, for a total weight of 286lb.
After getting a couple of fish early, he stepped up to a 5lb hooklength and size 12 hook and even then he says he only had to wait 90 seconds for each bite. We think they call that serious bagging!
