TOP French carp venue Abbey Lakes produced this monstrous 95 lb 8 oz mirror for Drew Fuller, and set a new lake record. It’s easily the biggest carp caught anywhere in the world this year.

The fish, known as Shoulders, resides in the 35-acre Heron Lake at the popular holiday destination, conveniently not too far from Calais. The giant also held the previous complex record at 94 lb 4 oz.

Amazingly it was the first time that the 37-year-old floor layer, from Rainham, Essex, had even seen the venue, and the big ‘un came during a 72-hour weekend session.
