ParkerBaits Fish of the Month Prize Winner

Although Personal Bests are exactly that, there are certain benchmarks that
transcend the angling world. A 2lbs roach, 3lbs crucian or 20lbs pike have
long been held as National Specimens. Austin Battell not only set three
personal bests in the space of two trips at his local Barden Lake, but also
achieved three such specimens. Using stepped up feeder tactics, his
cocktail bait of worm and maggots was first taken by a new PB Bream of
13lbs 2ozs. Before he had a chance to let that fact sink in, his rod was away
again, this time attached to a PB Carp of 45lbs. As if that wasn’t enough, he
returned the following week and bagged another double figure bream and
a new PB tench of over 9lbs. Any one of these fish would make an angler’s
season, so to catch them in a matter of days make the achievement all the
more impressive. Austin‘s success makes him a worthy recipient of this
months ParkerBaits bait package.

Alex Smart _ Perch Fishing P.B

DOUBLE P.B DAY for me…what a brilliant day that was on the perch me and dad set off in search of a perch back on a lake me and Luke Ripley done well last time and got my P.B then of 2lb3oz. Walking round the lake we meet with Luke and had a catch up and fished in the swims next to him. The morning was nonstop rod action. First fish was a carp on a whole prawn at 14lb5oz (which was fun on 6lb hook line and 8lb main line). I then swiftly moved from that swim as don’t want them. The 2nd fish was a nice perch look like another p.b and it was 2lb 4oz then had 2 more. A 1lb 5oz and one what was about a lb. It went quite was hours after that then about 4.30pm the rod screams of again and this one seems a good one. YEP another P.B 2lb 11oz was buzzing after that all caught on prawn and small deadbait roach from Bait Bucket Tackle Warehouse thanks again for sorting the bait out guys
