Steve French, 82lb 8oz, Alamo, 18.01.2020

2009 was the first time we saw Chunky, when it was captured from Pole Position weighing in at 49lb; then again in July 2010 during the Gigantica European Cup to German angler Jens Bunsen from Co's Point at 51lbs. It then promptly went on the missing list for two years until reappearing in June 2012 from the Stink at a new highest weight of 66lbs. 

In a similar form to the last time, Chunky then disappeared for another 2 years until October 2014 when Andy Reynolds, who was fishing in Baxters Hole was lucky enough to catch her at 73lb 12oz, eight pounds up in weight.

The most recent capture of Chunky guessed it, 2 years later in October 2016, when she reappeared in the Alamo at a consistent 73lb, and then again in May 2017 at 74lb 8oz. We can only guess where she will make her next appearance.
