GRAHAM BELL used a ‘brick rig’ of EIGHT 16 mm halibut pellets to smash his PB catfish by 8 oz with this 98 lb 8 oz specimen.
The 44-year-old from Grays, Essex, fished local Crow Green where he fished two rows of four pellets on a looped nylon hair-rig with a size 4/0 Catfish-Pro circle hook.
Graham, a Catfish-Pro employee said: “I’ve had five on this rig over 80 lb in the last four years.
“The good thing about this rig is it sits on top of the silt because of the wide surface area so normally one of the first baits to be picked up.”
