New venue record at Angler's Paradise

The biggest carp ever caught at Anglers Paradise has been banked by Gary Western.

The Exmouth angler took the 43lb 4oz mirror after a frustrating first year on the Kracking Carp Lake at the Devon complex.

Gary, who had banked just two fish from the lake since spring, managed a 34lb 2oz common on the opening night of his three-day session, before hooking into the forty at 10pm on his second evening.

He said: “I still can’t believe I hold the current complex record –it was worth its weight in gold.”

Both fish fell to Mainline Cell boilies.
