Looks to be the same fish caught Anto Roberts a few weeks ago weighing 6 lbs.
Such tail deformation is not at all uncommon on tench in this lake and they appear to be worse on the larger, older fish so it’s unlikely they are injuries. Both fish have similar tail deformities but the tail of the larger fish is more deformed that the later caught fish. It can’t have got better so is it the same one? Perhaps not.
Sorry Anto but you don’t hold the record after all.
