JUSTIN GRAPES had this 11 lb tench plus another green giant of 10 lb 1 oz in a great catch.
Big tench fan Justin had wait a day to get into the swim he wanted on a secret lake but then made the most of the next two days.
Angling Direct-backed Justin, from Norwich, Norfolk, added six others to 9 lb 9 oz including an 8 lb 5 oz male.
Justin told Angler’s Mail: “There had been a few fish caught from that swim and I was hopeful of a few bites.
“I put about 4 kg of caster, maggot, 2 mm SPellet, chopped worm and ADvanta spod mix out.
“I started off catching on maggot feeders with Enterprise maggots and Drennan fake caster and bags of caster on the hook.”
