Good size Plaice will feature in catches from the Spring through to the Autumn, with plenty of fish over 4Ib being caught. If you do everything right and are lucky then one of the 6lb or 7lb plus fish could be yours.

Paul the Power Milkins from Sutton in Surrey was on a mission to catch a plaice of 4Ib or over, well he certainly did that when he reeled in a plaice weighing 6Ib 2oz.The plaice was of course a personal best for Paul who was using 10Ib class tackle and a trace with green and black beads on. The successful bait was Ammo black lug and squid strip. Paul is pictured below with his fish.
