A fish weighing more than 50 kg was recently caught in Gironde.

Every fisherman knows it, there comes a day when everything goes perfectly when you cast your rod.

An alignment of the planets that usually results in spectacular and unforgettable shots.

A group of fishermen from the Arcachon basin has just had the pleasant experience of managing to bring up a lean man with a height of 1.75 meters and a weight of 52.5 kilos, report our colleagues from Sud Ouest.

They fish a meager of 1.75 m and 52.5 kg in the Arcachon basin

Accompanied by his father and a friend, Victor Mottet, a 22-year-old engineering school student, had a perfect day fishing this big poisson , sometimes nicknamed “gruntler”, found in the waters of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean.

It must be said that all the conditions were met for such a catch because the weather was ideal and the tidal coefficient perfect.

« The fight lasted more than half an hour. We wanted to go for the tuna and ended up looking for the lean. I have already caught fish over a meter, but one like this, never! “, says Victor in the columns of South West.

Only small downside, this impressive catch could not be formalized because the trio of fishermen was unaware of the rules in force.

« We did not know the conditions for having the fish approved, but it could have been a French line record. “Explains Victor to the local media.

No matter, for him the essential was elsewhere!
