World Carp Mas­ters (WCM) 2018

Carpworld - - FRONT PAGE -

With 83 teams from 15 coun­tries com­pet­ing over a 17½ mile sec­tion of Lake Or­lik in the Czech Re­pub­lic re­cently, the 4th WCM event was a re­sound­ing suc­cess. Al­most half of the teams caught carp – no mean feat con­sid­er­ing the size of the venue – with 122 landed in all, topped by a 42lb (19.1kg) com­mon.

With only the four largest fish be­ing el­i­gi­ble for each team’s score, the com­pe­ti­tion kept go­ing right un­til the fi­nal whis­tle. The even­tual win­ners were the English pair­ing of Mark Bines and Michael Wisken, who man­aged a weight of 54.1kg (119lb) to thank for their share of the £45,000 prize fund, after the five-day event had run its course.
