Fritz blitz lets Ram nut Baz clout the big trout; FISHING.

ACHTUNG! Fritz The Floating Fish Fry is blitzing rainbow trout in Lancashire's Pennine Fishery at Littleborough, near Rochdale, where floodlights tempt punters to cast around the clock.

Soccer fan Barry Hulse, who is a Derby County season ticket holder, fooled a monster 21lb 2oz 12dms Pennine beauty with a white Fritz imitation of coarse fish fry. Now Barry, 60, from Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire, is leading the season's top rainbow runners - and he's over the moon!

"My fish makes up for the disappointment of missing Derby's 4-0 Easter victory over Bolton," he says.

Fritz imitations feature mother-of-pearl Lureflash for the body.

A white Fritz is deadly at Pennine but other colours are sold in most tackle shops.

PLAICE your bets, folks! The flattie war is hotting up with seriously big fish suppers flapping aboard Weymouth charter boats.

Ray Barron, 36, from Southampton, caught seven from 5lb 13oz to 3lb 2oz from Ken Leaster's "Bonwey."

But he was outpointed within 48 hours by Stewart Huggins, also 36, of Grove, Oxfordshire, who bagged one of 6lb 4oz - his first-ever plaice! - on a run to the Shambles Bank with Weymouth skipper Colin Penny.
