This huge 64lb 5oz mirror carp was the highlight of a week session at the Les Quis complex in France for Allan Pike.
As well as landing the venue’s biggest resident, the Bromsgrove-based manufacturing manager banked two forties to 42lb 4oz, seven thirties, eight twenties and two doubles during the productive trip.
All of his fish were fooled with a prototype plum flavoured pop-up from Nutrabaits. The 43-year-old said: “I’ve only just started using Nutrabaits gear and so far the results have been impressive. I actually had my first take from Les Quis within 15 minutes of casting out.”
