Big fish ac­tion at Ik­tus Pau

Carpworld - - TOPCATS -

It’s been an­other ac­tion-packed month at Ik­tus Pau in the far south of France. Lit­er­ally, there have been dozens of fish be­tween 20kg and 26kg cap­tured from both lakes on the com­plex but, in par­tic­u­lar, the main carp lake is where five carp over 30kg have been banked in one week alone! Var­i­ous swims have been do­ing well and in par­tic­u­lar Swim 5 where there were fish of 55lb, 66lb, 69lb 4oz and 69lb 8oz caught in just five days. Swim 4 is of­ten seen as the lit­tle brother to Swim 5, smaller in size and not quite as pop­u­lar, but it has been do­ing the busi­ness with sev­eral good fish, and big ones too. Swim 6 has most of the deeper wa­ter on the lake but again fish to over 30kg have come out re­cently. Up at the other end of the lake Swims 1 and 2 have been do­ing well also. De­spite be­ing the nar­rower part of the lake the fish have been get­ting there in num­bers and Swim 2 in par­tic­u­lar has pro­duced fish to 29.5kg (65lb 4oz). While it’s the big­gest fish that tend to make the news there have also been some in­cred­i­ble koi carp landed too. Most of the koi come from the front Stur­geon Lake and the big­gest over the last month was one weigh­ing just over 40lb. But for sheer colours it’s dif­fi­cult to beat the stun­ning ex­am­ple that’s pic­tured here.

FRANCE: IK­TUS PAU Not the big­gest but cer­tainly the most colour­ful Ik­tus carp from the last month
