Greys Carp Academy member Ed Betteridge has landed a 49.12lb Carp known as Choco.

Ed has been targeting Choco for a number of years and his perseverance and undoubted angling ability has finally paid off.
Ed Said;
“3 years and 3 weeks, 188 nights, 75 captures, 20 lost fish that could have been the one, half a ton of bait, 12000 miles and 200 hours on the road, £6,000 in diesel and tickets, hundreds of laps of the 50 acre lake watching and baiting… all to catch one fish – Choco! To say I’m pleased to finally catch him is a massive understatement. I just can’t believe I have at last ended my quest with him at 49.12lb.
Marketing Manager, Gav Burn said;
“I’m really pleased for Ed, I know how long he has been targeting Choco so for him to finally land the fish is fantastic news. “
