New Lake Record 75lb 2oz Mirror Carp From Laroussi


Throughout the summer the record carp for Laroussi hovered just below the 70lb mark.  There are 4 different known 60’s, up to 69.02, so we waited with anticipation for the first 70lb’er.  Well it’s happened in style with a magnificent 75lb 2oz mirror!

The lucky captor was Troy McLean from Brighton.  It came from L’Anse peg at 1.30am on Saturday 21st November.  His 18mm DT baits boilie was fished over a bed of boilies and partiblend at around 75 yards.  A blow back rig, Korda Curve N°4 hook, Mantis Gold hooklink and 3oz lead was the successful combination.

This was a return visit to Laroussi for Troy having already set his own PB at 45lb there earlier in the year.

If you’d like to fish Laroussi over the winter there’s a special Winter Deal in place until the end of February.  For a week’s fishing and the ferry crossing prices start at £134 per angler and as low as £111 for a 4 day weekend break.  Not bad for the chance of a 75lb’er!
