FRANCE: Huge carp of 54 pound
Dave Lane (from U.K.) took his annual trip across the channel with some friends and decided to hit up an old favorite, "Sky Lakes" in France. After a quick scouting trip, he had an incredible night the first day, sight casting to carp and landing on huge 54 pounder (24.46 kg). After his fishing week, Lane had 32 carp on the board and 7 weighing more than 45 pounds, including this fatty fish.
“The whole trip had been a roaring success for all of us and our grand total was over one hundred fish between the five of us with three of them over fifty pounds, which is pretty good angling by any standards and a testament to just how prolific the lake really can be.,” wrote Lane.
