Mark Ryder is no stranger to some huge carp, so when a trip to the mighty Lac du Chantecoque came around, he was full off confidence, with the hope that one of the resident beasts that lurk within the vast 12000 acres would make an appearance.

After no action for the first week, it was time to relocate and tweak his tactics in an attempt to turn things around.

What a turnaround it was as Mark went on to bank several 30’s & 40’s, which was undoubtedly a result in its own right.

However in a superb feat of angling, Mark bagged an altogether different creature – One of his target fish from this iconic venue, in the shape of a 66lb brute of a common!!
