Default 42lb8oz Pike caught on Maggots in Scotland

Just heard from some Pike fishjing friends that 21 Y O Scottish angler Peter Malcolm
Peter was using 5 white maggots , and a piece of corn on a size 10 hook tied to 8LB line
It took 45mins to land.
Fish came from a Loch thats stockedw ith trout 3 times a week.
Hope to have a picture for everyone soon!
I have seen 2 20lbers in England, and lost a fish I knew to be over 20lbs 2 times in 1 day in a match when using 2lb line.
I had little 1% chance of landing it
But I might have if I had hooked it the way Peter did.
Hook was jammed between its front teeth, lower came now where enar the 8LB test line.
Been a good year Around Britian.
A 46LB 8oz fish was landed in Ireland 2nd biggest officily recored, and photographed.Best in England this year is JUST............ 41lbs4ozs.
And the fish was returned to the Loch
