To me that doesn't look 30lb, it might weigh 30lb on some peoples scales but just how accurate are they? I hear lots of rumours of these big fish but I'm yet to be convinced. I would say the one from the canal is early 20's but that's my personal opinion

It looks similar to one I had in a match around 19lb a few years back although them scales are a little dodgy. The scales I've seen people weighing fish with would throw up some new records and the number of 3 lb roach in St helens would make this town a Mecca for roach fishing!!

i had one of the mirrors out of there that was claimed at 27-28 or something daft on my avons it weighed just under 19 if memory serves apparently the lad had also weighed it on a set of borrowed avons

19 equates to 11 or 28 as well Rolling Eyes
