Giant common carp from Rainbow Lake

This giant common tipped the scales to 74lb 8oz on a trip to Rainbow Lake.

Sam Rozier caught the fish from peg 21 at the historic French venue on the third day of his trip.

The fish, known as The Perfect Common, fell to Solar’s Seafood Take-Away boilies and is a new personal best for the Kent rod.

Rainbow Lake, also known as Lac de Curton, is located south of Bordeaux and was stocked 20 years ago. It has produced a range of giant carp to over 90lb.

Sam, who works for Solar, presented his hookbait over matching freebies and a bed of Solar Salty Sweet particles.
