CATFISH ace Dean Aldridge notched his fifth 100 lb-plus UK wels with this 106 lb 2 oz giant.


The 51-year-old consultant of catfish products company Big Cat UK fished for 48 hours on a day ticket water in Essex.

Bromley, Kent-based Dean said: “The first 24 hours were spent on a unproductive part of the lake, but a move produced the big one.

“The bait I used was Big Cat pellets, fished on the block rig over carpet feed and RH hybrids and tamed using a Mark Tunley cat rods.

“I would like to thank the wels catfish community for the tips and tricks,” he added.
