"As bait I used a 20 mm boilie of the brand MM-baitservice, which starts working quickly in the water. "My 35 cm long leader with size 6 hooks I fished behind an 121 gram heavy inline lead. "The plan was to offer this about five metres away from the feeding place at a depth of three metres in order to catch as large a carp as possible.

I picked up the rod and started a battle of about ten minutes. "The big fish moved quietly, but finally the landing succeeded. When the carp lay in the net, we could not believe our eyes and immediately called for the owner Alexander Horvath. "When weighed the huge carp went an incredible 49 kg on the scale, a world record.
