Monster catch for Ron

IT’S usually young Dan Harborne we’ve featured catching monster fish at Horton Boat Pool near Staines with the Cemex syndicate. But this time it was dad Ron’s chance to shine, with this Danubian Wels catfish tipping the scales at 71lb 2oz after luring it with luncheon meat.

Ron’s previous best in 17 years of fishing was just 36lb so he was suitably pleased, especially as he went on to net another 46lb specimen the same night. Dan helped Ron land the huge fish and it took them well over an hour.
