Mar Peche monster
All waters provide varying degrees of difficulty and it’s fair to say that the northern French lake, Mar Peche, is classed as one of the tougher ones out there – but the rewards make it worth the effort if it all goes right! In this instance, it certainly did for William Chapman, when he spent a week out there in search of some of the Mar Peche gems. He actually ended up landing five carp, with four of them in the 30lb range, topped by a beast of a mirror, weighing 83lb 9oz! William was fishing to a silt area between thick weed at 50 yards, putting out 2kg of 16 and 20mm Manilla boilies, twice a day, and was happy enough with the four 30lb mirrors and commons before leaving the best until last and hooking the largest resident of the lake on Friday morning giving him a great 30-minute fight.
