CHARLIE SHIPMAN baited a marginal reed bed to attract this huge PB tench of 11 lb 1 oz, along with six more green giants to 10 lb 9 oz.
The specimens came from a local Cambridgeshire pit where he fed 2 kg of Venom Baits Mamba boilies, pellet and red maggot.
Charlie also had a 19 lb carp, as well as one of his targeted fish – a 29 lb 9 oz ghostie.
All were caught using 12 mm VB pink mamba pop-ups on Withy Pool rigs.
