CARPER Rob Adams was chuffed to obliterate his bream best with this 16 lb 12 oz beast.
Bream, even beasts like this, were not front of mind for Birstsall, Leicestershire-based Rob. He was after carp at a Midlands syndicate lake when the big bream took his legered boilie at extreme range.
The 43-year-old self-employed window fitter told Angler’s Mail: “I was fishing at 140 yards on a baited area with about 20 Spombs of boilies.
“At 4.30am I had a bleep looked out and there was a branch on my line so I cleared my lines and it was all slack so I tightened up and felt something on the end.
“Next thing I know I’m looking in my landing net at the biggest bream I’ve ever seen in 38 years of fishing.
“My previous PB bream was 12 lb 12 oz which I caught a couple of weeks ago.”
