Question new world record silver carp!

Hello friends,
I got an info from my network, that a silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) with 56 kg (123,46 lb) and a length of 142 cm (56 inches) was caught in Lake Bajer near Kutina in Croatia on 11th april 2006. The fish was caught with rod & reel by Milan Rakovcan.

This would be the new inofficial world record for silver carp! Till now the maximum weight for this species was 50 kg (110 lb).

There are two questions:
Wasn't it a cross between bighead carp and silver carp?
Was it caught regular and not foulhooked?

My reliable contact person in this area says, that there are no bighead carps in Slovenia and Croatia. And that silver carp in the 50-60 kg (110-132 lb) range live in Lake Skale near Velenje (Slovenia).

Can anybody confirm this catch?

Thank's in advance for supporting the most comprehensive database in the world concerning freshwater world records.
To improve the knowledge about fishes.

Heinz, editor
