Chapmans Rik Johnson @ Les Quis, France

Chapmans Angling Scunthorpe Staff proving they are a cut above the rest with one of the biggest hauls of specimen carp that has been landed from the Les Quis complex in France. A trip which saw Chapmans Rik Johnson and friends land a staggering 587 fish including 8 different 50s to 57lb.

Upon arrival at the complex the action was immanent! As soon as I returned from my long walk around the lake after baiting and cast my rods, within 2 minutes my first rod was away. First fish of the session resulted in a mid thirty pound mirror, and the action never stopped. I finished the week absolutely warn out, landing a staggering 67 fish in total, 9 of which were forties all over 47lb apart from a stunning common at 43lb.

My friends and I also smashed the complex record which was held by 'The Tackle Box' by over 30 fish catching a whacking 587 fish including 8 different 50s in a week.

The most successful bait being the ever consistant Rolling Baits BFM Cranberry, rolled for us by the fantastic lads at Rolling Baits. We have been taking this bait there for the past 5 years now, and these huge carp just can not get enough of it. 

Tackle used Pro-logic CC30 12ft 3.5tc rods, Okuma distance carp reels,
Pro-Logic XLNT 20lb line and the new WSUB Pro-logic alarms.
