Massive Euro carp weighs in just a few pounds off world best.

We’ve just had details that one of the biggest common carp in the world has been banked a monstrous weight of 85lb 4oz.

The fish, caught by overseas Nash consultant Geert Ooms, sets a new Benelux record and is a fish of a lifetime for the 30-year-old Belgium carper.

Geert has been on the trail of this fish for the past 7years before it recently slipped up.

Details of the capture are sketchy at the moment, but we’ll bring you more as soon as we can.

The current world record common carp was caught last year at a weight of 87lb 6oz from a secret venue in Germany.
