Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

The first ever carp weigh­ing over 50kg has been caught, tak­ing the world record to an as­ton­ish­ing 112lb 4oz in the process!

The 51.2kg mon­ster mir­ror was banked from the 28-acre Euro Aqua, near Nemesvita in cen­tral Hun­gary, by Michel Schoen­mak­ers.

The fish was caught on Novem­ber 23 and beats the pre­vi­ous world record of 108lb, which also came from Euro Aqua.

There are thought to be at least three fish weigh­ing over 100lb in the venue, which can be booked for long week­ends or week-long stays and is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar with an­glers from Bri­tain.
