Les Whiteman with a whopping 7lb 14oz Plaice, beating his PB on Flamer IV

18th July 2011 – Colin Penny

Les Whiteman chairman of the Newick Crown Hookers SAC broke his personal best plaice record twice on a trip aboard FLAMER IV.  Les landed a Plaice weighing 5lb 14oz which beat his personal best, but then topped that with a whopping 7lb 14oz Plaice and beat his PB again.  The 7lb 14oz Plaice also broke the Flamer record which stood at 7lb 2oz.  Les was using 10lb class tackle with a two hook flatty trace with lots of coloured attractor beads on.  The successful bait was ragworm, Ammo black lug and squid strips.
