CHELSIE ALDRIDGE had a top trip to France - including one of the biggest ever caught by a UK woman.

Chelsie tackled Abbey Lakes and landed loads of catfish from 30 lb to 100 lb topped by this giant PB of 127 lb 8 oz.

All were caught from Abbey Lakes on Big Cat UK Stinky Pellets fished as singles or on a block rig.

Bromley, South East London-based Chelsie, 20, a law student, explained: “It is my second 100 lb-plus catfish.

“I’m just getting organised now for one more trip out to France, to end the catfish season hopefully on an even bigger high.”
