Big mirror breaks day-ticket venue best by an ounce.

The record at day-ticket venue, Suffolk Water park has been broken by a fish of 41lb 3oz.

Caught from the complex’s Specimen Lake the fish, known as 4.3, was banked by local angler James Potter who snared the fish using PVA bag tactics in combination with a snowman rig.

The Woodbridge-based rod cast his rig, featuring a Premier Baits Quad boilie with a 10mm pop-up with a bag of pellets to 50 yards, taking the fish during a 24hour session that also saw him land another mirror just shy of 30lb.

James beat the record specimen with the help of a size 8 ESP hook on an 8inch hooklink on a helicopter rig.

The same fish set the previous record for the venue when it was caught back in October when it was caught at a weight of 41lb 2oz by Ipswich-angler Ricky Preston. On that visit to the bank the big mirror fell for a Dynamite Baits Spicy Peanut boilie, again fished snowman rig style.
