The Fryerning Fisheries lake record has been broken by Mark Deighton with his capture of this huge 53lb mirror carp known as The Gurm.
The 44-year-old builder beat his previous pb by 11lb in the process using AM Baits Bounty Hunter boilies.
Mark, who only joined the Essex venue in May this year, said: “Gurm is absolutely amazing. It was quite a strain to lift her out of the lake and on to the bank. She is an incredible carp, really very special.”
