WYNDON COOLE has caught the third biggest authenticated English pike of all time with a 45 lb 14 oz stunner.

The factory worker caught it from his local Wykeham Lakes in North Yorkshire.

The pukka pike picked up a 6 oz trout livebait at the 7.5 acre Trout Lake that has a small predator syndicate on it this year but should open up for pike day tickets in October.
