Brigueuil beau­ties

Carpworld - - TOPCATS -

Etang de Brigueuil down near Li­mo­ges in France is open al­lyear-round but things have been quiet on the fish front for a while now. How­ever, just re­cently the carp ap­pear to have wo­ken up. Most no­tably a new PB 57lb mir­ror for Chris that he had from Swim 2 along with an­other cracker of 53lb and a fur­ther fish of 30lb. He tempted those on a mix­ture of tiger nuts and Bait­works Mon­ster Red boilies all at a dis­tance of about 60 yards. To add to the story so far, Rich was back on swim 11 this time with son Paul, who was mak­ing his first visit to the venue. Paul man­aged to beat his PB of 32lb with his sec­ond fish that weighed in at 35lb. Then he made dou­bly sure with the next fish, a crack­ing 53lb 12oz com­mon. He fol­lowed those up with two over 40lb to 47lb 14oz. Rich also did well with three fish over 45lb to 49lb, to­talling 13 fish be­tween them all on tiger nuts. Over on swims 7 and 8 Michel and Ton fished with Main­line Cell and fin­ished on 16 fish, ten over 30lb, three over 40lb and a 54lb com­mon. The weather con­di­tions were poor at best, so re­spect to ev­ery­one. In all, 40 fish were caught in that one pe­riod, in­clud­ing 17 over 30lb, three lower 40s, 14 over 45lb in­clud­ing four over 50lb.
