OVERSEAS CARP – 71 lb 2 oz
65.9% of World record
WITH little in the way of carp action at Lac du Charlou, in France, Anthony Woods decided to go sunbathing on a local beach, returning later in the day to mat this 71 lb 2 oz mirror carp.
The 34-year-old angler said: “It was really hot, and with not much happening, I decided to reel the rigs in and go to the local beach for the day. I had a little dip in the water, then went for a walk and a quick drink, thinking about what the night would have in store.”
A Mainline Cell boilie cast to a gravel bar at 70 yards did the trick for Anthony.
