Gotta be the blue groper. My dad caught a 300lb one twice in the same week! (Thats austrailian fishing for ya <Yibbada yibada eh rex>). 4lb roach would be top quality though and maybe a double figure barbel in the same day!!!

Well a 20lbs barbel would do me nicely. A 50lbs atlantic salmon would be good too.

Chub,

Why is it that you list fish that currently cannot be caught in the UK?

We should be proud of our heritage and what our ever improving waters can provide.

So these are my targets for this year -

A grayling - hopefully I'll achieve this from the Kennet this weekend.

A Barbel - but must be from rumming water.

Great info, great guys, great fun, thats Maggot Drowners

Hi Guys


I think I would like to play and catch a moggy, but to add to the excitement, I'd rather not know that they were in the water.
I have heard so many tales of epic battles lost to moggies on substantial tackle that I'd like to experience such a fight.

We made several trips to the fens years ago in search of Zander, but always managed to go whilst they were on vacation. LOL
So, a Zander would be nice too [:D][:D]

Slightly off topic, but...a Muskie!
For those who have never heard of them, here's one...

Polepot, if it is any help I fished the Barton Court stretch on Thursday with my son. Great day . Weather was kind.Cloudy & not too cold.It was my first visit, and after a quick chat with Bob,the baliff, we started fishing the stretch close to the fishing hut.Alloy stemmed sticks and mostly maggot as bait.Within half an hour my son had a brown trout of about a pound and a half. Within the hour having moved 50 metres he had caught another brown trout of 2 pounds and a Rainbow trout probably nearer 2 and a half pounds.I still had not had a bite. Eventually after a fair bit of walking I managed my first ever Grayling, about 6 ozs.At the end of the day I had caught a few Grayling,biggest 8ozs, & some nice Dace and Roach.
Cheers.
