Italian carp fishing record broken with 39,5 kg common

Italian angler Riccardo Fanucchi has broken the carp fishing record for his country with the capture of a huge common carp of 87lb (39,5 kg).

The old record carp for Italy dated from 2006, with a 76lb carp from the Po river.

Fanucchi managed to land his record breaking common carp on Lago Di Salasco, a private water in northern Italy, located between Milan and Turin.

With a weight of 39,5 kg, the old record was broken by a full 5 kg. The old record dated from 2006 when Italian angler Massimo Mantovani captured a 76lb specimen on the well know Po river.
