65lb 2oz Common and new lake record from Etang La PlanchettePallatrax Angling
For owner Paul Beasley, it has finally happened and he has landed the stunning ‘Silver Surfer’ from his beautiful French venue, a Pallatrax Associated Fishery member, at a whopping 65lb 2oz. This is the first time Paul has banked this awesome common from his venue and he is, understandably, over the moon – congratulations, Paul, top angling and well deserved.
Paul’s tactics, which are catching him so many fish, included the Stonze System (another lake record to be caught using natural Stonze weights instead of man made leads!), Crave (Plum, Crab and Cranberry on an exclusive Fishmeal base) freezer baits and our highly regarded Gripz design Curve Shank hooks in size 6. In Paul’s words, “Probably the best hook I’ve ever used!”
