★★★ Deux îles report to 5th May ★★★

A catch report from Bradley Coombes and Tyrone :

This was our second visit to deux iles on lake exclusive so we somewhat knew what to expect from Bruno and his lake. Immaculate cabins and a great host in Bruno, full of advice and friendly chat.

On arrival at the lake it was very hot and we thought we might struggle a bit. However I managed a 42 lb 5 oz PB mirror within a few hours of setting up which set the tone for the rest of the week. The weather stayed very warm up until Tuesday, I was consistently catching maybe 2 or 3 a day. Come Wednesday the weather changed with the wind blowing in the other direction and the temperature cooling to around 15 degrees. This really got the fish feeding and my dad was getting a bite around every 3/4 hours.

We caught some stunning fish which included us both catching the sturgeon on the same day and me breaking my PB twice during the holiday and also catching my first grass carp which was a real treat.

We would and have recommended this lake to anyone. It is pure luxury and Bruno is a brilliant host who can’t do enough for you.

Many thanks Bruno, will no doubt be returning in future 👍🏻.

In total we managed 35 fish, 4 being 40 lb Carp up to 43 lb 5 oz and the sturgeon at 42lb !

A catch report from Rick Cordingley & Adam Cordingley

This was our first fishing trip to France and something we had been looking forward to for some time. We chose Deux îIes because of the setting and the peaceful nature of the location. We also like the idea of the limited number allowed on the lake at any one time.

On arrival Bruno greeted us and took us round the lake offering sound advice and lots of information that would be useful during our stay.

We decided which cabin we liked the look of and after a amicable discussion we were able to pick cabin one.

Although the weather at first was mixed and often cold we still manage to catch a few fish including the biggest of the week at 42 pounds.

On the Monday it went really cold and even snowed at one point, we brought the rods in and went to visit a local town and did a little shopping.

After that the weather improved with nice hot days but still chilly and misty throughout the night. Although we caught on most days we felt the Mondays weather slowed the fishing for the rest of the week.

We used simple bottom bait tactics with a washed out pink topper,fished over crushed boilies and Bruno's pellet and particle mix.We fishied to the far margin and also on the bunker that ended up being the most fruitful swim.

We had a great week and Bruno was really helpful, we would love to return one day.

Many thanks to his Mum who supplied a really delicious pot of jam.

★★★ Deux îles report to 28th April ★★★

A catch report from Andrew Murchison & Edward Dmd Hawes

This is our first visit to Deux Iles or indeed France Carp fishing so our expectations were that if we catch a fish we would have done well, we managed to do that and the trip exceeded all expectations!

The weather we experienced was every season possible within one week, with a cloudy start but relatively good conditions, moving onto a massive drop in pressure and torrential rain and wind, the week then ending in beaming sunshine. This defiantly affected the fishes movement as they were far more easily located in the first part of the week but we still managed a good head of fish.

Apart from the obvious fishing for some absolute stunning fish, the appeal of Deux Iles is the location, the scenery, getting away with your mates or loved ones and having some amenities thrown in makes it a complete winner for us.

Highlights of the week had to be:-

· Catching the picture perfect Scaly mirror with the apple slice scales, an absolute stunning creature.

· Both of us catching our new Pb’s @ 40lb and 44.8lb which always makes the trip sweeter if you both come away with one of these key miles stones, mine personally only standing for the last 20 years….

· Then getting the now named “Steve the Sturgeon” coming out to my partner in crime on the first night, then the second night and then the third night in a row. We had previously arranged to swap swims so did so, assuming Steve would not be this cunning to move sides of the lake… he was! He then had him again for the fourth night in a row. I believe he then came out at the other end of the lake so five times on the bounce. Stupid Steve…

The average catch for us was in the 30’s with a good compliment of 40’s coming out too.

We had an amazing trip and the host is alright I guess J What a place!

Thanks Bruno, you’re a top man!

A catch report from Lee & Darren :

This is our second visit to Deux Iles, having fished the right Island last year we set up this year on the left Island, on our walk around the lake with Bruno we saw several fish showing, so this along with Bruno’s advice gave us some ideas of areas to target.

Once unloaded and set up in the cabins, we started chatting about our tactics and toasted our arrival with a cold Kronenbourg!

We were quickly rewarded with a lovely Mirror just under thirty pounds that fell to a Lake boilie topped with plastic corn – cracking start.

The weather then started to cool down a little having been scorching hot on arrival, feeding the swims little and often we managed to keep the fish in our spots and regularly picked up bites across the majority of our areas.

It was a brilliant week, as ever Bruno is so helpful and the facilities are great, we banked 37 fish in total, some of the highlights were a 44.5lb Common, 42.5lb Grass carp, and the Sturgeon twice at just over 40lb! The average weight was just over 30lb with some stunning looking carp that fight so hard.

We are already looking forward to being back later in the year and are also planning 2019’s trip.

★★★ Deux îles report to 14th April ★★★

A catch report from David & Jay :

Arriving at Deux Iles on a fresh Saturday morning, we were greeted by the friendly and knowledgeable lake owner, Bruno. It was a pleasant drive from Calais of just over 2.5 hours with limited traffic. As far as first impressions of Deux Iles go, it couldn't of been much better. The lake is truly stunning, with so many options and 'carpy' spots to target from each island. Looking across the water with the morning mist still rising, a rather large lake resident showed itself tight to the far margin and landed with an almighty 'crash'. Needless to say, excitement levels were high!

After a good walk around the lake with Bruno, we both agreed upon which island we wanted to fish. Luckily, the other anglers fishing were returning customers and preferred the other island, so no draw had to take place! Top result and everyone was happy.

The majority of day 1 was spent watching the water with our polaroid glasses on and walking up and down the far margin/tree line to the left of the swim. This gave us a great idea of where the fish spent a lot of time and awe were already formulating a plan.

It wasn't until around 5pm that the rods were finally in place. We didn't have to wait long! After only 10 minutes of having the final rod out, the alarm went into meltdown and a healthy bend in the rod confirmed fish number 1 was on. A mirror of 32lb+ was in the net shortly after and as with all the fish we caught, it was a stunning specimen. The rod was clipped up and sent out tight to the left hand tree line again with minimal disturbance.

At around 7.30pm, we were sat watching the water from the comfort of the breakfast bar. The sun was slowly setting and we were treated to a vast number of fish showing near our spots. It was prime for a bite and as expected, the Delkim receiver let out a few steady beeps which had our full attention. A closer inspection confirmed fish number 2 was indeed on and it wasn't long before it become apparent that something rather sizeable was on the other end. After an epic battle, a 42lb 8oz common was finally beaten and we were both buzzing! Day 1 was a complete success.

Steady action resumed over the course of the next few days with both of us catching well. A great tactic for us was casting a bare lead over to the far bank, at around 100 yards away, it's a comfortable chuck. Whilst one of us held the rod with a semi slack line from the swim, another would walk around with a simple rig and a handful of bait. Once attached, the rig was carefully dropped 3-4 feet from the bank onto clear areas of the lake bed, which were easily visible through the wonderfully clear water. A handful of pellet and crumbed boilie was plenty to draw the fish down.

There is a picturesque narrow bay which runs all the way around the cabin we fished from. The carp simply love to pass through there and as the weather got warmer throughout the week, the activity levels began to rise noticeably. The 2 small islands are a definite carp magnets and ignoring this area would of been a big mistake. We captured 2x 40lb+ fish from this small section of the lake, both no further than a 15 yard cast.

All together we landed 20 fished and lost a few. You can't win them all!

5x 40s fish to 44lb 3oz
7x 30s and the rest over 20lb

Bruno was always nearby if we needed anything. The local supermarket 'Super U' which he suggested was fantastic. Always listen to Bruno as he only wants the best for his visitors and he clearly knows his lake extremely well.

We cannot wait to return. Many thanks and see you soon.

★★★ Deux îles report to 7th April ★★★

Both cabins were busy the week of April 7.

3 anglers were here for the second time and this years they came with two new guys Kyle and Lee.

The week was slow but the carp seemed to move and bosh a lot more every days.

They still managed to catch about 10 fish. Even if they tried every single tactic the fish were not feeding so much !

With the nice weather for the following week the things will change for sure !

Thank you again for this week and I hope to see you again very soon !

★★★ Deux îles report to 31st March ★★★

4 anglers were on the lake Sat 31 March.

Paul and son Rein were here for the second time! Rein is 7 years old and was like last years so excited to start fishing. On the other island Ryan and Jamie are visiting the lake for the first time.

The week was very difficult at the start but Ryan managed to catch 2 different 30lb and one 20lb. On the other side Rein caught some nice carp over 30lb and some little chunky !

I'm looking forward to see you again! Thank you!

★★★ Deux îles report to 17th March ★★★

For the second week two new anglers joined Rich and Scott at the lake and Rich and Scott let the new guys choose their swim.

The week started great with another 40lb on the bank the first afternoon but then the snow came with the cold weather.. At least Scott managed to catch the sturgeon for his second time and this time it put up much more of a fight resulting in sore arms.

The new anglers Kyle and Jake also tried a variety of methods at the other end of the lake but as they had arrived as the cold weather took its grip they struggled for a bite also. That is why it’s call fishing not catching sadly...
