Dutch carp angler Rudy Lemmens still can’t believe what happened to him. Yesterday he banked a once in a life time mirror!
Rudy is over the moon when he realizes what he had just caught! This carp is the new Benelux Record Carp. What an amazing catch! Well done Rudy!
Former Benelux record holder Kurt Cauwenbergh caught this carp at 88lb (40 kg) in October 2011.
In may of that same year this mirror called The Mohican came out at 82lb 5oz (37,45kg) making Belgian carp angler Bart Voeten the leading Belgian record holder at that time.
It is remarkable to see how fast The Mohican is gaining weight and it is not unlikely that this monster carp will break the world record one day if it keeps growing like this. It is swimming her rounds in a closed gravel pit in Belgium with a very low stock of carp which must be one of the reasons she is gaining this hard.
