General comments:
Once again Mehdi's waters have produced the goods. In my view, I consider Laroussi to be a moderate to hard water. If you want to cast a line and catch fish all day then this water is not for you. If you are prepared to put the effort in then the rewards are there!

With a relatively high pressure, and easterly wind blowing all week, and with a lot of fish spawning , this made it extra hard! The pb Mirror and 2 pb Commons came as a result of moving - effort = reward!

I have now notched up 5 pbs in 2 visits on Mehdi's waters-The results speak for themselves.

we are all looking forward to next year!

General comments:
Very very tough week and slow but mainly due to carp spawning at the end of the week. The sturgeon are a pain as they keep going through your lines whether you fish slack or tight lines moving your rigs from the spots throughout the night which you think are runs. This is my 6th time on laroussi and each time it seems to be getting harder to catch mirror or common carp as I believe that the sturgeon and grass carp are overtaking the lake which is a real shame as there is some lovely mirrors and commons to be had if you can get past the sturgeon or grassys 1st.

*Angling Lines note* We fully appreciate this was a very frustrating week and have discussed the points you have raised with Mehdi at length.

Whilst some weeks see very few sturgeon and grass carp, Mehdi says the grasses were a nuisance in the last couple of weeks because of the hot weather and the carp getting ready to spawn. However, we understand that when the fishing is tougher and the carp aren't on the feed, you don't want to be getting multiple runs from grass carp. He has agreed to reduce the number of these by taking out 20 and 30lb'ers. He now has only 4 sturgeon.

Mehdi also believes the carp have been spooking a lot because the catfish are so big now (6 between 120 to 180lb). He will look to remove some of these too, but not all.

General comments:
The weather started off raining for the 1st 2 days then cold nights by tuesday temps were hitting 27 28 degrees but still cold nights.
The lake was virtually dead all week with only 2 or 3 visible fish a day, i was starting to think the fish had been taken out.
The only runs that came were from sturgeon catching lines as they passed.
The day of departure the carp was going ballistic spawning under the trees.
So basically ive wasted a shed load of money and time plus looked forward to this for two years for a week of fishing that was a waste of time.
Its time these venues had a close season in place to let the carp spawn and rest plus minimise the chance of anglers totally wasting there money.
I understand i could have chosen other months but decided on early April to get there before spawning as in the past ive been in May and hit spawning.

Name of customer:
Ashley Haines
Number of anglers:
4
Details of your catches:
7 anglers on lake,
1 sturgeon caught , 2 lost by another angler who was pleased this occurred. We class them as nuisance fish.
3 grass carp, biggest being 48lb, lovely fish.
1 catfish around 10lb.
No carp were caught which is just mind boggling as all of the 7 anglers on can’t be rubbish.. 5 anglers on the lake had been numerous times before but agreed that each time we go the fishing gets harder.
Fish management or lack of it can be the only answer.

In fairness to Medhi who I like immensely, the fish started to spawn on the Thursday because of the high temperatures we experienced.

Medhi has a amazing lake and some massive beautiful carp but (my opinion only) carp anglers do not want to catch sturgeon, catfish and grass carp. We go out to France spend a huge amount of time and money for the enjoyment and passion of catching carp .


Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
In the past when I have fished the lake -
15-20 Spods on hard spots any type of rig just presented properly.


Were the facilities what you expected?
Excellent as ever , new floor had been put down in shower / toilet hut . Nice
Shower excellent always clean .
Were you happy with them?
Yes but could have towel hooks in shower room by sink . Nowhere to put towel when washing or having shave, minor point though.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
In the past I would have definitely had said yes and I could see myself fishing this lake for many years .some amazing carp, lovely sized laked and Medhi is a true gentleman.
But I would say no now because of the points I have raised, the choice of lakes in France is ever increasing and owners have to be on there game with what the anglers wants and fish management. I feel Medhi does not understand what an English angler/ customer wants.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes great service from yourself as always.

Name of customer:
Martin Lill
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
Unfortunatley neither of us caught a carp. My partner landed a 16lb pike on single boilie? and I lost 2 one of which i think was a sturgeon.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Out of all 6 on the lake the best approach seemed to be little and often. But the weather was very up and down with temperatures one minute at 4 degrees with an easterly wind then the next day 23 degrees with a southerly wind so difficult to get any consistancy.

A lot of fish showing in the middle of the lake bit out of reach at 200 yds unless you jave a bait boat, but they didnt want to feed. Thats the chance you take at end of march

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities were good and always clean.
A bit of a trek from the corner swim
Were you happy with them?
Very happy. Good shower. Drinking water on tap and medhi was always a phone call away if you needed anything
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes. It was a very tricky week but we will return as some very big fish in there. The sturgeon are a problem and with the exeption of the lads on the point swin, the other 4 were constantly getting lines picked up and all rods wiped out on occassions. Dont use pellet and do use back leads to minimise this
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes the booking and arrangements were spot on so will have no hesitation using angling lines again.

General comments:
The lake is well laid out with all swims comfotable and plenty of water to fish to.
The lake bed is pretty flat mainly silt with a few small gravel spots but they are small and hard to find. No weed or snags.
