Stu Smith
Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
Lost count of the number of fish I had, lots of commons, mirrors and grass carp to mid 30's.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Started the week fishing from the main peg right behind the house but found I couldnt get my rods in quick enough before one of them rattled off. Best tactics seemed to be stalking up near the snags at the top end of the lake. Keep quiet and you'll see the fish. Boilie over the top of a handful of freebies. Nice easy fishing. Please see a couple of videos below:

Name of customer:
Amanda Hill
Number of anglers:
1
Details of your catches:
Mixture of commons & mirrors 38 fish caught, total weight 664lb, lost 21 fish

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Stiff fluro carbon so the hair can't move too much, as I found the fish I lost every time the boilie which was wrapped in armo mesh was caught over hook point. Probably due to the small cats keep picking up the bait. Boilies used were bait works monster red & royal marine 18mm.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes had everything we needed.
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?

General comments:
We had 2 weeks at Mas Bas. The journey is long however well worth it. Beautiful surroundings, the pool was excellent we all loved it. The fishing was good the weather was excellent mainly 30 degrees every day. The house has every thing you need and is very clean also the area is so peaceful.

Plenty of wildlife we did see some deer, kingfisher, wood pecker. Gilles was very helpful we did have one issue and Gilles did his upmost and got it sorted. We wanted to book next year same time but dates have already gone. Good luck to Gilles & Sharon, we will be back, loved it.

Name of customer:
Stanley Watkins
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
Very much under fished and should have had a lot more fish. This was due mainly to me suffering from heart failure and consequently was recovering for two days from the two day drive from Caen. Two caught, two lost, not particularly big but good fighters never the less. Common Carp 16lb 4oz, Goldfish 13lb 4oz.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Quest baits Rajah Spice, and Gilles' own boillies. Both hair rigged with a large floating fake sweetcorn tip.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Having been several times before we knew what to expect and as usual were not disappointed.
Were you happy with them?
Yes, extremely happy.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Without doubt. Especially someone with a family who are not necessarily into fishing. The remoteness of the venue, and the walks, and peace and quiet, and the availability of the swimming pool all go toward making this an all round family venue. The local town is only 15 minutes drive away and has everything needed, Supermarket, Pizza House, and Restaurant.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes. I have done several times.

General comments:
Although I was very ill at the time, it was still a relaxing holiday.


Holiday date:
Sat 15th Jul to Sat 22nd Jul 2017
Name of customer:
Michael Swingler
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
430lbs fish. Average weight 21lbs. Largest 31lbs, 2x30lbs. Very satisfactory. Fished 5 evenings for 3 or 4 hours and 2 mornings for 3 hours. Used 3 active rods.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Boilies supplied by Gilles very satisfactory. Tried others from local shop but no better result. Used a bait boat to access water under left and right hand willow trees.

Many good fish in the shallow area by the islands can be easily accessed with free lined snowman boilies but controlling the running fish is difficult

Were the facilities what you expected?
Accommodation is clean but basic. Facilities adequate. Location is superb. A great place to fish and relax. Finding the place initially greatly facilitated by using coordinates on google maps sat nav
Were you happy with them?
Yes. Great welcome from Gilles who is always very helpful
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes, to a couple who wish to combine some fishing and some sightseeing. Serious fishermen and families with children should book the main lake
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes

General comments:
Angling lines should increase their promotion of fly drive and tackle hire on this location. Saving a gruelling drive and hiring good tackle is a great option to this location!

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Use the throwing stick and keep on throwing boilies out on top of your rig every few hour, we found that this make the fish want to eat more, so this resulted to more bites. We were using a mix of urban baits boilies, that were the Nutcracker and Red Spicy. Our hook bait choose was the mainline hi vis fluro dumbell pop ups, in Banofee and Plum flavour, these resulted in more catches. We tried to use a bottom bait technique but that did not work as it was getting destroyed by crayfish all the time. We use a Roonie rig we a boom section with a 4oz drop off lead system.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Much better than expected.
Were you happy with them?
Very happy with the accommodation and fishing facilities.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Would highly recommend this venue
Would you recommend our services to a friend?

General comments:
We went as a family of 6, the venue was idyllic, beautiful house, lake and swimming pool and surrounding countryside. The nearby village had a well stocked supermarket and we found everyone to be friendly and helpful. The boys had a great week fishing successfully catching many large fish, the hire equipment from Gilles was of top quality. Bordeaux is a beautiful place. We will definitely be going back next year.

Name of customer:
David Haywood
Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
3x30lb+mirror carp beautifull condition, 5×common carp up to 26lb, 5×grass carp up to 23lb plus 1 surprise goldfish of 12lb

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
The best tactics are to do exactly what gilles says and you will catch fish, I left some of my boilies out in the sun to dry and harden a bit it dosent bother the carp but stops the poisson chat eating them so quick, also I would take some korda boilie shrink wrap that stops the poisson chat all together but still lets the boilie flavour out.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities were excellent, could not be better.
Were you happy with them?
Very happy
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes we hope to be going again next year with some friends but on the main lake
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes

General comments:
Thanks to gilles and sharon they have made a very memorable week for us, they made us very welcome and are always available if you need anything. Listen to gilles he knows his stuff, they are his lakes and fish after all.


Holiday date:
Sat 24th Jun to Sat 1st Jul 2017
Name of customer:
Nigel Wolters
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
18 fish at Lotus lake.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Hard baits to stop the small cat fish.

Were the facilities what you expected?
We had a viewing of the main lake and house. This is an excellent facility. Rooms are spacious and the view from the house across the lake is stunning. I would fully recommend this venue. The guys that used the house the week we were on Lotus lake had many big fish from Main Lake.
Were you happy with them?
Gillies is very helpful and knows his lakes, follow his advice and catch fish through your holiday.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes for main Lake and House not for the house at willow (Lotus) Lake but Lotus Lake fishing was fine.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Not at this time

General comments:
All my comments should be used as a guide only, we were not happy with Willow Cottage but the Lake produced good quality fishing.


Holiday date:
Sat 20th Aug to Sat 27th Aug 2016
Name of customer:
James Harford
Number of anglers:
1
Details of your catches:
22 carp, three 26lb, mix, commons, mirrors and a few koi. Maybe a dozen small cats through the week, small pellet maybe didn't help.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Definitely slower this year, but the 36c temps and no wind didn't help. (Apart from the sun tan 😀)

Rhaja Spice 20mm's bottom baits and 15mm Fluoro pop ups snowman style, double bottom baits, size 4 hooks, 10 inch hook links. Bait boat under the willow tree and to the left side of the aerator.

Only fished days and did have a few afternoons off due to the heat and some socialising.

Were the facilities what you expected?
This was our third year at Willow Cottage, it's great for us as our kids are older. The cottage has rustic charm and all rooms are clean and today, the seating area outside and the location of the lake are perfect for a bit of fishing and nice family time. This year we even had a barbecue with the neighbours!
Were you happy with them?
We love Mas Bas, it's a long drive down from Calais (9 hours), but a bit of planning and organisation and its soon become quite a nice drive!

The countryside views and environment at Mas Bas are something quite special, I have no other desire to go any where else really, ticks all my boxes as a venue to take my family and kids. Just booked the main house for 2018 and taking the in-laws, so must be good.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes I would, Mas Bas is a great place for families, the main house is the best for families with younger kids, I think Willow cottage is more accommodating for older kids.

Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Mas Bas service was excellent. Angling Lines could be more flexible on the options to not take up the Ferry or Shuttle options. The price of the holiday has gone up each year, there is a take it or leave it attitude which is a little disappointing after three years of booking and very minimal interaction from Angling Lines.

General comments:
We arrived on the Saturday afternoon, really enjoyed the glass of wine and friendly welcome, Gilles and Sharon are lovely people and we look forward to seeing them again in 2018. main Lake here I come!!
