Six anglers enjoyed a French carp fishing trip to remember when they netted an incredible 1000lb of carp.
The six friends, all from the UK, exclusively booked on of France’s top carp venue’s, Moorlands in the Burgundy region and banked a mammoth 72 fish including seventeen 40’s, eight 50’s and one mid-60 mirror during an arm aching week at the venue.
The group fed large helpings of Terry Hearn’s CompleX-T shelf-freezer bait boilies and fished snowman rigs incorporating 15 or 18mm CompleX-T bottom baits tipped with pink coloured pop-ups such as the matching Fluro range.
One of the group members was Charlie Hughes who banked the big 60 known as ‘The Peach’ at 64lb 7oz one of the venue’s biggest fish. Moorlands owner, Keith Moors said: “It was an absolutely epic week for the lads and one they will remember for a long time I’m sure. The fish just couldn’t get enough of the bait.”
