1,500lb of carp topped by a 49lb mirror on French trip

A week-long trip to France produced 1,500lb of carp for Ian Merriott.

The Hampshire angler managed 41 fish between 27lb and 49lb 4oz but ran out of bait towards the end of his session at Le Queroy.

He said: “I used a total of 50kg of boilies, but ran out on the Thursday morning. So for the remaining days I was restricted to using three-bait stringers, but the fish were so 'on the bait' that the takes just kept on coming.”

Ian used Solar’s Seafood Take-Away and Top Banana boilies presented on 5in fluorocarbon hooklinks.
