Pre-baiting an area on a local gravel pit in northeast France, Solar Tackle team member Thomas Mascha dropped in to fish the spot on a day-only session at the weekend.

A mixture of Solar’s Seafood Take-Away boilies, tiger nuts and pellets all soaked in Marine 17 liquid were used to prime the area in the days leading up to the trip.

Presenting two, Seafood Take-Away snowman hook baits coupled with 101 hooks over the area Thomas landed not one, but two forties in a single day. The first, a mirror of 42lb 4oz was followed just a couple of hours later with a second mirror of 41lb 2oz.

That’s a hell of a day trip in anyone’s book!
