A huge well done to Cliff Jones who came away with the new lake record at Beaurepaire this May, weighing in at 56lb 1oz.
‘After a few beers some silly bugger suggested that if one of us were to catch a lake record they should be made to streak the full length of the far bank and I can tell you now it’s a long way just wearing your boots and hat with paparazzi chasing you.’
Rather you than us Cliff!
Cliff also caught another fifty earlier on in the week, this one weighed in at 52lb 8oz.
‘This one turned up two days earlier! I’ve waited 35 years to catch a 50 then just like buses two turn up at once. Our group has been going to Beaurepaire for 4 years now and we have seen these fish putting the weight on and we are all convinced the lake will produce a 60lb carp within two years.’
Beaurepaire has been a well kept secret by many who have fished it. It’s a beautiful natural gravel pit, just 2½ hours from Calais that holds a lot of carp – it really is a runs water! It’s around 7 acres and would ideally suit a group of up to six anglers looking to book a lake exclusively… but individual bookings are welcome too.
