Total-Fishing can report that the carp world record has been beaten smashed with a fish of 101lb 4oz from Euro Aqua Lake in Hungary….
The mighty world record carp was caught by Roman Hanke (Austria) – it measured 113cm in length.
The previous four world records had come from France.
The first ever 100lb-plus carp has been caught by an Austrian angler fishing in Hungary.
Roman Hanke tempted the massive 10lb 4oz mirror carp from Euro-Aqua Fishery – a venue that had been tipped up as a potential record breaker.
The fish, caught on June 5th, measured 113cm long and fell for a bridfood boiled and the commercially run venue, which is a former gravel pit near to the massive Lake Balaton. A week’s fishing there costs 700 Euros.
The capture means that English anglers lose their grip on the world carp record, which has been jointly held by Buckinghamshire roofer Ambrose Smith and John Bryan from Waltham Abbey with a 99lb fish from Le Graviers Fishery in Dijon, France.
