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.
