James Jones, 88lb 4oz, Alcatraz, 14.12.19

Named because it is literally "The" Perfect Common Carp. Long, deep, beautifully proportioned with perfect scaling and an immaculate mouth. It came out in early July 2009 at 44lbs, and shot to prominence with great shots taken both on the bank and in the water.

Jake Wildbore managed to land the fish from Scotties Corner at 59lb after a 4 year absence, when some others had written it off. Then like London buses, the fish came out again in the same week to Jon Mann, which was amazing considering such a long absence.

Long time Gigantica regular Rowan Hill was fortunate enough to land the Immaculate in October 2016 after it had once again been on a two year sabatical around the lake. He caught the great fish from Bob's Beach on an IQ D-Rig with a Banoffee Wafter, which is a great end tackle presentation on Gigantica. What was even more amazing was that it came out again a week later from The Stink......incredible!

It was captured was from Baxter's Hole in September 2017 when it weighed in at 76lb and then again at 80lb in September 2018 from Bob's Beach. If you wanted to target this giant Common, September in the Beach or Baxter's has to be a good bet.
