When Ross decided to fish Puyravaud with 5 time visitors Pete and Gary, little did he know what a weeks fishing he would have. After waiting patiently for two days for his first fish, he landed a PB of 33lbs+. A farely modest start which was beaten with his second fish – a beauty of 43lbs. On his final evening Ross was heard to say ‘I am really happy and don’t mind if I don’t catch another, its been a great trip’ – beware the contented fisherman!
At 8.30pm in semi darkness, Ross hooked into a hard playing fish which took 20 minuted to land. Once on the bank, it was clear this was a big fish and the guys ensured everything was recorded correctly. The fish was a 53lbs 8ozs mirror in beautiful condition that originally went in Kingfisher at 40lbs 7 ozs, two and a half years ago and was previously caught at 50lbs 5ozs – the last Kingfisher Lake record. The catch was weighed several times and verified by owner Peter Jackson.
Both Pete and Gary had some great fish up to 47lbs, so it turned out to be a memorable trip for all three of them.
Ross will have slept well last night and dreamt of even bigger catches on his next trip to Puyravaud. Well done Ross on your third PB in a week and the new Kingfisher Lake record.
