Full moon yields massive common for French rod.

French big-carp angler Franck Couturier enjoyed a rewarding session on a big French gravel pit recently, banking a massive 50lb common carp.

The giant common was taken under the light of a full moon, after what proved quite a difficult session for the Taska-backed ace.The weather in particular made fishing difficult, nevertheless, after some clever baiting techniques involving 20mm Trigga Pineapple N’Butyric boilies and a hook bait of the same topped with a 16mm Pop Up mounted on Taska Baseline tackle, Franck landed this stunning 50lb common!

Some say it’s luck? Franck certainly agrees!
