LURE ace Trevor Gunning had a top perch session with 11 big stripys including specimens of 4 lb 5 oz, 4 lb 3 oz and 4 lb.

Gloucestershire’s Cotswold Water Park was where Trevor made his latest impressive catch.

The former owner of Cotswold Angling, who lives in Swindon, Wiltshire, included four others over 2 lb plus five pike.

Trevor said: “All fish were caught drop shotting after locating fish using a chatterbait with a shad trailer.

“Basically keep moving until you had a hit or caught a fish, then concentrate on that area by using a drop shot rig with micro shad.

“All the big fish fell to that method,” concluded Trevor.
