Details of your catches:
31 carp caught in total biggest 59lb 40z (Vera aka the boss) 2x 40s , 11x 30s , 13x 20s 4x doubles

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
As everyone says listen to Dicks advice and fish simple, carp came to both pop ups and bottom baits fished over Dicks particle mix . Far margin produced consistently with a few carp coming out from open water after feeding a spot throughout the day

Were the facilities what you expected?
What can I say which hasn't already been said , Dick and Jo are two of the nicest people you could meet my only regret is that it's taken me 5 years of fishing with Angling Lines to finally make the trip down to Golden Oaks as I live in Yorkshire.
The quality of the hosts, venue and carp are just fantastic, I can't wait to return again.
Jo's food package is a must as boy can she cook and I lived like a king although I think I'm now a stone heavier!
Were you happy with them?

General comments:
This was our second visit to Golden Oaks, and having enjoyed it so much last year and having caught 19 carp last year, it had a lot to live up to.....and it certainly didnt disappoint.

We thought we had set the bar high to aim at from last year, especially with the time of year and hot weather, but we absolutely smashed it with 37 fish including a PB 55lb 2oz Mirror.

We used the same tactics as last year using Dicks advise and a bait boat for rig placement. Unfortunately the bait boat broke down mid week, but with accurate casting to the same spots on the far bank, we caught just as many. The only change from last year was that we actually spent less time on the bank fishing - but this produced more fish.

Once again the food was incredible and Joe and Dick's service was second to none. Joe accomodated for the fussy eater in the group again and went out of her way to buy and prepare seperate food for her. The accomodation, pool and facilities were spot on once again.

We had a lovely day out at Brantome, a small town about 40 minutes drive away, as recommended by Dick and Joe. We took advantage of the lovely weather and went for a 12km kayak trip along the river running through the town. The only thing we would recommend is to wear/take swimwear, as there are plenty of spots to get out and swim.

We had a troubled start to the holiday with one of the vehicles breaking down 50km from Calais. This caused a lot of stress and hassle, as well as making us late to the lake. We would highly recommend taking out European Breakdown Cover with a reputable company, and checking all terms before purchasing. We had many difficulties with ours, so trust me when i say "paying a bit extra for a good policy is definitely worth it"!!

Thanks again Dick and Joe for a wonderful week!

We have already booked again for next year!
