2 x 70lb’ers and a new 68lb PB at Laroussi

We’ve seen some incredible fish out at Laroussi recently, here is owner Mehdi with an update…

Weather has been up and down from early April to late May, we all know fishing results depend directly on weather conditions. In the last 2 months at Laroussi, about 250 fish were caught – some weeks at 20ish fish with bad weather conditions (high pressure, north wind, cold nights) and some better weeks up to 45 fish with ideal conditions (low pressure, south wind and stable temperatures with some showers).

Many new PB’s have been broken putting smiles on faces. Many forties, fifties and a couple of sixties and seventies were landed. A new seventy was caught by Kenneth Anderson at exactly 70lb.

Graeme Joyce was happy to break his PB with another super mirror weighing 70lb 6oz and John Allen, alias ” The Baron”, strikes again with a new Pb at 68lb 8oz.

Some big grass carp over 40lber up to 50lb, some sturgeon to 66lb and a few tench up to 14lb. Still no catfish out but they are now very active and chase ducks every week! I suggest you to bring special catfish gear and try maybe just a rod with a big piece of luncheon meat but be ready to fight a long time! Anglers watched some long specimen along the bushes chasing ducks. Most of them are between 6.5 to 8 feet long.

This week is doing well, yesterday a 59lb and a 51lb were out. Tight Lines!
