The top match angler and fishery manager caught the specimen from Masters Lake at Shatterford Lakes near Kidderminster.

“I drove round Masters and noticed a few big fish just under the surface, so I thought I’d go and get my rod and have a chuck,” he explained. “Using an Acolyte 11ft Carp Waggler rod with a 5g Pellet Waggler produced this stunning ghostie at just over 24lb! I wouldn’t really recommend this type of rod for deliberately targeting specimen fish, but what a rod!”

Grant fooled the fish with a piece of punched meat held on with a Pushstop to a size 12 hook and a 0.30mm Supplex Fluorocarbon hooklength.
