Scale icon 50lb 2oz Scale icon 22nd March 2020 Location Emperor lakes syndicate Type Mirror Bait Cell wafter 14mm
Turning up friday tea time to the syndicate straight from work , a strong eastly blowing. The lake had 4 anglers on all tucked away in shelterd swims , so into a swim called ginges right in the teeth of the wind but I'd had a gd couple sessions in this swim the week before so a no brainer . Back on the same spots i caught a 30lb ,28lb, 23lb and a stocky on a overnighter the week before happy days confident as ever . Saturday soon came around savage night with big cold 40mph+ winds , no bites , same again redone the rods and repeat same as the night before. Winds due to drop still very cold chill but looking promising, 12 o'clock soon had a couple beeps on the right hand rod and had a stocky around 6lb in the net . Quickly redone the rod as wind completely died and I new it was good for another one . 5.15 left hand screams off fished bottom slope of an island. Absolutely beast of a battle line twinging in the wind i new it was a big un . Roughly 15min battle i finally netted her no head torch, but as soon as rolled her i seen the tail and new it was her . Quickly called my mate who was in a swim up the bank from me and got he4 sorted. After a cuppa tea sun had just started to rise we got her weighed once on my scales , twice on my spare ones then third set from my friend toby , 50lb 2oz !!! Witnessed by 2 other members . Lots of pics then a super quick pack down as ov course mothers day i had to get home keep the kids and wife happy aswell .
