Mosella backed Tony Watson recorded an incredible personal best 416 lb 3 oz haul in a midweek at The Oaks Fishery, Sessay. The Durham tackle dealer gives us an insight into how he achieved it.
‘It was the Sessay open on Wednesday 27th June. I Drew Sycamore peg 26 which has been a good area of late and definitely felt in with a chance of a winning weight. I set up three pole lines, two edge lines one left and one right plus a line in front both shallow and on the deck.
I Started the match on the method but it soon became apparent this was going to be too slow as fish were very quickly showing down the edges and shallow .
So after 30-minutes I went down the edge and began catching straight away. After an hour-and-a-half it was obvious a huge weight washing to be possible. The fish were shallow on all the lines and after that the rest of the match became very easy as the peg got stronger when the shade appeared over the left side of the peg. This culminated in a last hour filling two nets for 110 lb. and I finished up winning match with a personal best weight of 416lb 3oz.’
