NEW LAKE RECORD & FIRST 60LBS PLUS AT LAC DU MENHIR
Andrew Morris-Ebdon and party visited Lac du Menhir for the first time and had a very successful week.
Going into Thursday night Andrew had already caught 8 fish from swim 1 including 2 x 50lbs plus sturgeon, a 39lbs plus mirror and a 40lbs plus mirror. Friday morning brought 2 further mirrors at 36lbs 4ozs and 39lbs 6ozs, then when Andrew’s middle rod went off he instantly knew it was another good fish, however could not quite believe it when this mirror was weighed at 60lbs 8ozs. I was fortunate enough to be at the lake to witness this new lake record and the first 60lbs plus fish to be caught at Lac du Menhir. Andrew was using Denham Baits Element and Kranberry Enzyme boilies.
 
In swim 1a Anthony Freeman had commons at 25lbs plus and 30lbs plus, plus mirrors at 33lbs plus and 36lbs plus.
Neil Griffin fished swim 6 and finished the week with 5 carp, a common at 25lbs and 4 mirrors to 35lbs including 3 at 30lbs plus. 
In swim 6a Andrew Sneddon had 11 fish including 5 x 30lbs plus mirrors to 36lbs 7ozs, 5 commons to 39lbs 5ozs and a sturgeon at 49lbs 7ozs.
