Fox consultant Tom Maker has banked the mighty 'Freak', weighing 52lb, from France's Gigantica Lakes. The giant carp is the first to be banked from the complex in over six months!
Tom and brother Andy are on holiday at Gigantica, and Tom's run came from a particularly deep area of the lake, on a 21ft zig rig! The hook bait was simply black Zig Aligna with
black foam soaked in Betalin on a 21ft long hook link tied from 12lb Zig +
Floater Hook link, to a size 6 SSBP(B) hook. Tom was fishing his monster Zig at
a staggering 140 yards with the help of his Fox Horizon XTK rods, and 15lb Soft Steel main line.
