Luton Angling Club Weekly News Report 25th June 2017
16yr old Filip Dunaj had a week to remember after finishing his GCSE exams he spent 24hrs in baking temperatures at North House Lake Monday through to Tuesday where he managed three commons and mirrors to high doubles on Mad Baits.
While his father Wojciech attended a Luton AC Board meeting on Thursday evening Filip got dropped off at the nearby Beckerings Reservoir to do some lure fishing for perch & pike using a light lure set up.
Letting his small spoon drop through the 15ft depths Filip quickly realised something was a miss when straight after casting and his bale arm open line continued to leave his spool at an every increasing rate.
Some 20 minutes later and he had the largest catfish in the reservoir at 56lb in his landing net. The catfish is a potential club record and would add to Filips 10lb zander record he caught in 2015 as a junior.
Father & son then went along a stretch of local river where both caught barbel & chub with Wojciech catching his very first barbel.
