44lb Danish Carp, Breaks Lake Record

Solar Tackle field tester Soren Poulsen has landed his long-chased target fish. The impressive Danish mirror was not only Soren’s target fish, but his first Danish forty and a new lake record to boot.

Soren explains:

“For several years I have been chasing a special fish in one of our large lakes. The lake holds a low stock, but covers an area of approximately 320 acres.

“In the past year I have spent 130 nights in pursuit of this particular carp. I have landed several nice carp during this time, but until now my target has remained elusive.

“On my 131st night though that all changed and my persistence was rewarded. I was fishing on a plateau at 250 meters range. I had a snowman rig, an 18mm Candy Floss bottom bait topped with a 14mm Dairy Cream pop-up, presented over a mixture of Candy Floss and TunaMino boilies and tiger nuts.

“After landing several bream during the night I was awakened in the early morning by a ‘one toner’. Following a short, heavy, plodding fight I caught sight of the fish in the margins and I had a good idea that it was the one I wanted. It slipped into the net and I could finally see the big mirror staring back at me.

“Not only had I bagged my target fish, but it tipped the scales at just under 44lb, my first Danish forty and a new lake record as well.”
