DAVE NEWMAN beat his PB pike by 15 oz with this 31 lb 13 oz beauty from a small Nottinghamshire gravel pit.


The 38-year-old from Sleaford, Lincolnshire, who works in the construction industry, used a drifted small roach at 4 ft in around 15 ft of water. He added four other predators.

Dave said: “It has been a great season and I have now had three new personal bests including my first zander of 7 lb and a river pike PB of 23 lb 9 oz.”
