John Allen, 68lb 8oz, Co's Point, 13.7.19

A very distinctive looking carp that is undoubtedly the twin sister of the late Giant, hence the name. It showed huge promise early on then had a period where it stayed in the 50lb bracket, never quite making it through into the 60lb class.

This changed when Gary Wade had it from Co's Point in September 2012 at 67lb, putting on 13lb, having been on the missing list for 18 months, cute fish! DF was the next captor of the great fish, banking it in September 2013 from Co's Point at 62lb 8oz.

In July 2014 it was caught from The Alamo, back up in weight at 66lb 14oz and then it ventured down as far as the Oblivion. Peder one of the group of Danish anglers who do so well every year slipped the net under it at a new highest weight of 72lb. A snowman hookbait on a KD style presentation doing the business.

A once a year capture on average and usually in the warmer months is when it lets it guard down. This is a boilie eating machine and usually comes off a well-baited patch. All its captures have come from open water swims, so these would be a good bet to target if you are intent on trying to bank this quite reclusive carp.
