6 Carp, Including 3 Thirties & 3 Forties for a total of 232lb 10oz in a single day, could be a new record for a single day haul.
This staggering catch of big carp was landed by Solar Team angler Thomas Mascha from a local pit in northeast France. After prebaiting the venue for a few days in advance, Thomas settled in for a day session he will never forget and may prove to be the biggest single day catch of big carp ever.
Fishing over a scattering of Solar Seafood Take-Away boilies, soaked in hot Scottish Salmon Oil and Marine 17 liquid (the same baits that were used for prebating), Thomas landed this incredible run of big fish, all in a single day.
His Seafood Take-Away hook bait was coupled with a small PVA bag of Squid & Octopus Up & Down Mix and the result was carp of 47lb, 41lb, 40lb 12oz, 36lb, 35lb 14oz and 34lb.
232lb for just six fish in a single day is a phenomenal catch and once again proves the value of putting together an effective prebaiting campaign. To catch 6 carp of any decent size in a day is an achievement for any angler, to catch 6 of these sizes is absolutely outstanding.
