RIVER pike ace Leigh Laffar was thrilled with this stunning 28 lb PB â but thinks she might hit the magic 30 lb barrier at the end of the winter.
The 32-year-old engineer from Warwickshire explained: âI caught her during the floods, fishing a slack under a road bridge on a float fished half-herring.
âI had prebaited the areas over September with chopped sprats and thought with the floods the chance had gone.
âI landed a 23 lb 8 oz fish upstream the week before where I baited up and then this 28 lb beauty a week later, both bites coming late on in my sessions.
âSorry I have to be secretive over the location but Iâve had so many messages asking what stretch and everything else.
âShe will be a 30-pounder come March and I want to protect this fish from being bombarded as it is a very special one,â added Leigh.
