Illner catches personal record in France

Tostedt. This spring, Radical test angler Robin Illner decided to target monster carp on large, shallow waters in northern France. His objective was clear from the outset. He wanted to land a carp of 25 kg (55 lb). The experienced angler’s chosen baits for the task were tiger nuts and dried 20 and 24 mm Rastafari boilies and Yellow Zombie boilies (both from Radical). “Sweet and bright baits particularly stand out and attract fish quickly. Fishmeal baits, on the other hand, are my preferred choice for long-term feeding grounds,” says Illner. Illner tested one of the large lakes for a...

Sensational predator in Holland

Tostedt.  Babs Kijeweski enjoyed an outstanding start to her predator season in Holland, enthusing: “I was already thinking last year about how and where I wanted to spend the start in Holland. The plan was to go on the Volkerak with my own boat for the first time. A completely unknown water for me. And a huge expanse of water as I discovered last weekend!I prefer to explore such unknown waters by trolling. In my opinion, that is the most effective way to gain an overview. I had two and a half days. With my objective set out, I started fishing. On the first day, I brought nine pike on...

Thirtieth catfish over 100 kg (220 lb)

Record carp for Gründer

Tostedt. Radical and Black Cat team angler Benjamin Gründer has specialized in fishing for carp for more than 20 years. During this time, he has claimed some impressive catches throughout Europe. Landing an exceptional specimen of more than 25 kg was what drove him on his travels for many years. However, as catfish angling took up more and more of his time, his passion for carp become somewhat neglected. On a recent carp fishing trip to a club lake in Bavaria, though, Benjamin and his fishing partner Michael Freund enjoyed a veritable carp-fest. A euphoric Benjamin Gründer reports:...

265-centimetre monster catfish on the WILD CAT´z Adventure Weeks at Wallerwelt in Italy!

Tostedt. On Friday 6 April, a dream came true for WILD CAT´z Adventure Weeks participant Philipp Rehberger. The angler landed a 265-centimetre leviathan weighing an estimated 130 kilograms on the floodwaters of the river Po in Italy. It was the fish of his life. Firstly, however, Philipp had to endure a brutal fight from the dinghy that lasted over 25 minutes. The catfish took off upstream immediately after the bite in just 80 centimetres of water, which is typical behavior of only the largest specimens, before sitting on the bottom for several minutes as solid as a rock.The fully parabolic...

It's back - The Browning Warhorse event for 2018

Tostedt. This year's event will be held at Colemans Cottage Fishery in Essex on Saturday 6th October 2018. With Bob Nudd celebrating fishing with Browning for over 30 years this year as always we like to remember the heritage of our brand and reward our Browning supportive anglers too. Over the years we have seen poles aging over 30 years, some of which are immaculate and cared for and some proving they have stood the test of time and the rigors of match angling. So do you have a Browning "classic" pole still being used today or even one you never wanted to pass on? Yes! Then...

Monster landed amid dramatic scenes

Tostedt. Fighting a 130-kilogram catfish is never a cakewalk. However, what Black Cat team angler Benjamin Gründer and his guiding guest Markus Brock experienced at the end of January on the Po in Italy was something far more spectacular!For over a year, Benjamin Gründer had been repeatedly noticing a very big fish on his fishfinder during his tours. He had spotted the fish no fewer than 21 times on a stretch of five kilometers of river. Gründer takes up the story: “Initially, I always thought it was obstacles on the bottom, like sunken trees, that would produce such a signal. But at a...
