Matt Howe’s first trip to Puyravaud was proving difficult with the weather very wet and the fish not biting early in the week. That all changed as Matt hooked into a lovely fish at 9.00pm on Thursday evening. After a wonderful fight, he landed a fantastic 57.0lb common for a massive PB and new lake record.
This fish has made two other appearances this season and Matt was over the moon to land such a beauty to turn his week around – big style!
Carl also had a very good Thursday night/Friday morning catching 7 fish in 8 hours.
Matt, Carl and Ethan have all managed to break their PB’s during the trip, so everyone goes home happy. Just a shame the weather was awful for the rest of the group!
