GarlicBAIT experimenter Leighton McDonnell swapped his fiery ginger crystals for pungent garlic granules to bag himself a 7 lb 1 oz Great Ouse chub.

Mail regular Leighton again illustrates that breaking the norm and doing something a little different can score.

Leighton told the Mail: ‘‘I make my paste bait with Ouse Mix with Schwartz Garlic Granules but only add half a teaspoon per 20 oz mix – any more and it becomes nauseous.

‘The garlic granules seem quite potent and have also helped catch 5 lb 7 oz and 6 lb 7 oz chub in recent weeks.”
