New World Record Carp – 99lbs

June 21st, 2010

almost the 100 - Pic from the DailyMail.co.uk

Well hot on the heels of Solar Head Honcho, Martin Locke’s, 94lb carp from Rainbow comes this one from Les Graviers.  It is the well known fish called “Scar” due to the massive scar that you can see around the fish. The scar was caused by the fish getting tangled in a rope when it was small and was released unknown if it would live… well now it is the largest carp in the world. My congratulations to the captor, Ambrose Smith for this new record which is tantalizingly close to the 100lb mark. As I reported earlier in the year ”  When will the 100lb barrier be broken ? Will if be from France or from elsewhere ? Will the 91 from Luke Moffats Les Graviers take the title again ?” well it turned out that my prediction was true, the fish from Les Graviers has taken the record.

Ok, prediction time again.

1, There will not be another record this year

2, It will go to an unknown German fishearly next year

Lets see if I am correct

What do you think ? Am I right ? do you have another opinion ? Have you seen a larger fish and want to share ? Post a comment and let me know
