FRYERNING FISHERIES Main Lake in Essex has been on fire in 2016 and latest to catch a lump is James Ellis who had this jumbo mirror carp.
The 36-year-old roofer, from Edgware, North West London, landed the giant, called Gurm, at 53 lb 8 oz plus another of 43 lb 7 oz.
He used Nash Key boilies in a small mesh bag of broken baits plus 50 freebies of varying size at 60 yards in silt.
