IT WAS THIS BIG...Lexi Bailey, six, with her prize carp

Comments (0)

SIX-year old Lexi Bailey is following in her dad’s footsteps - after landing the biggest fish of her life.

Dad Lee took Lexi for her first night fishing session at Seighford lake recently, and watched in astonishment as the lass reeled in and eight pound carp.

Lexi’s fish was caught using a 15mm boillie.

And although she’s not quite big enough to cast the rod, she was quite capable of landing the fish, say fishery staff who witnessed the event.
