53.12 – the new Genets record
Adam & his friend Chris arrived with us here at Genets yesterday 7th May looking forward to their first carp fishing trip to France. They had their rods in the water for less than 24 hours when at approx 1.15pm Adam landed his first French carp weighing 53lb 12oz.
Not only has he totally smashed his PB which was 26lb it is also a new lake record. This beauty was caught on a CC Moore Odyssey XXX snowman in cloudy weather conditions with light rain. The weighing on digital scales was witnessed by Larry & 2 anglers from the other party here this week.
This carp last came out on 5th October 2010 at 51lb 8oz also on Odyssey XXX .
Adam is of course over the moon.
Congratulations & well done Adam!!!
