PAUL WYATT tempted the second biggest carp of the year with this tremendous 53 lb 12 oz mirror from Berkshire’s whacker water Wellington Country Park.

The Basingstoke, Hampshire rod used Urban Baits Nutcracker boilies with a snowman presentation at 90 yards.

At the time he caught it, Paul’s catch was only bettered in Britain during 2016 by the British record breaking 68 lb 1 oz carp from the Wasing Estate, also in Berkshire.
