GIGANTICA – BLITZED!
Radu Mitrea has recently returned from the session to end all sessions on Gigantica Main Lake in France, which resulted in a 22-fish catch, with the various highlights including 11 originals and a colossal 117lb 8oz brace!
“This is by far my best-ever fishing trip!” said a jubilant Radu, who also managed to smash his personal best by a country mile thanks to the capture of the colossal Danish Bacon at 70lb 8oz.
Radu takes up the story: “Coming out first in the draw for swims, I opted for a peg I had never fished but always wanted to, Bob’s Beach.
“The week started slowly. With one fish landed and one lost after the first two nights, a change of tactics was on the cards. After seeing fish showing further away than my baited area, I gradually shifted all rods to a new spot and from then on the results exceeded all my expectations!
“I ended the session with 22 fish, including four thirties, five forties, four fifties and a 70-pounder. I managed 11 originals in total, including the likes of Danish Bacon, White Lines, Equalled, Lennie’s, Alcatraz and Buttercorn, and also managed a 117lb 8oz brace (Danish Bacon at 70lb 8oz and Buttercorn at 47lb).
“It was also a new record for the number/stamp of fish from that swim. Smashed it!”
