British Record Bream: 22lb 12oz

Scot Crook landed a massive carp from Cambridgeshire’s Ferry Lagoon, believed to be the same fish that was caught by James Rust in 2005 and Mark McKenna in 2009. The fish weighed in at 19 lb 10 oz, making it one of the largest carp ever caught.

Scot’s fish is the new record holder for the largest carp caught from the lagoon and is likely to be a candidate for the world record. The previous world record was held by Richard Walker, who caught a carp weighing in at 44 lb 8 oz from an English lake in 1951. Scot’s fish is an impressive catch, sure to generate excitement among anglers worldwide.

Mark’s catch was an impressive one, to be sure. But he wasn’t fishing for bream, so he didn’t claim it as a record. Scot, on the other hand, is intending to claim his fish as a new record. And he has good reason to do so – Scot’s record-breaking fish was backed up by another specimen of 18lb 8oz.

That’s believed to be the biggest brace of bream ever seen in the UK! 43lb 8oz is nothing to sneeze at. So it looks like Scot may well have a new record on his hands. Congratulations, Scot!
