Yes certainly the fishing is excellent.

General comments:
An excellent weeks fishing with some fantastic fish caught, including a PB mirror of 52.8, what I set-out to catch when booking the trip. The location is natural, picturesque and very peaceful. Guillaume and his girlfriend are very friendly and helpful. Guillaume knows his stuff to so it pays to listen to his advice, I did and it certainly paid off. This fishery is certainly one to look out for.

4x40lb
Multiple 30s & 20s
Lost 8 fish
Very good fishery for numbers of big fish.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Light silt over most of the lake apart from next to the dam wall where it's hard bottom.
BIG baits and double 20mm were taking lots of fish.
Smaller baits just induced the crayfish.
Crayfish were a nightmare so don't forget to take shink wrap!

Were the facilities what you expected?
Facilities weren't the greatest but enough to get by for the week.
Were you happy with them?
Yes

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Would recommend this lake to anyone looking for big captures with multiple runs. Experienced anglers and beginners can both do well as long as tactics are put together right.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Angling lines was very good and easy to work with. Would book again. Just make sure the ferry times are good enough and the drive isn't too much!

General comments:
Very good trip and excited to go back and see what we can get out there next time!

Special thanks goes to guillaume for being a great host and helping our party out with anything we needed and with fishing tactics.

Name of customer:
Sarah Batchelor
Number of anglers:
3
Details of your catches:
No catches!
The lake was full of roach so we had a roach challenge but we could have stayed in the uk for this. 5 dead large carp found. 3 on the land which the owner was told and know about and left them. 3 in the lake and they too were left.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We tried many many different tactics that always work in the uk, not even one run had....alot of taps we believe this was the crayfish or roach. Crayfish can be a problem many uk fisheries kill crayfish if caught.

Were the facilities what you expected?
No! The cabin was very basic with open windows not good for privacy for ladies especially. The electrics were the most basic from a car battery, just enough to charge a phone. The shower was not worth putting on I had to wash my hair in the sink luckily it was hot weather so I did not mind the cold tap, there was warm water that became to hot to quick. Could not even keep our cool box on for food as the battery could not cope.

The guy was great he would bring shopping if needed. He was a busy person so the times of the shopping was hit and miss.
Were you happy with them?
Overall not really. Was a peaceful break and picturesque.

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
No not really not worth the 6 hour drive from the ferry. We wasnt informed the bike racing was on so had to try find the lake around the racing.
Angling Lines have been fantastic, would book through them again
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Angling Lines yes.

General comments:
Very disappointed with the price we paid when we could have booked a all in fishing trip for not much more.

**Angling Lines note** We discussed this feedback at length with the owner of Nautica. Here is his response "There were three dead fish which I suspected to be old, no further carp have died and I have removed the ones mentioned. Apologies for this, it is a natural fact of the lake but I will try to remove ASAP in future. There is electricity provided from a battery on the lake (which I replaced three times during the week), it is fine for charging phones/bait boat batteries etc but unfortunately will not hold up to running a fridge 24/7. Regarding crayfish, I did explain a few times that they needed to use plastic wraps to protect the bait as they used very soft bait and boilies. Again, this is not something that has caused complaints from any other anglers. The cabin is basic but we have stated this clearly on the website."

Details of your catches:

44, 40,
37, 37, 36, 36, 34, 34, 32, 32, 30,
29, 29, 27, 26, 24, 23, 21,
19, 17, 12, 12, and a dozen stockies

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Three biggest fish fell to hinged stiff rigs with meshed 12mm spicy fish meal.

60% of all other fish fell to cc Moore equinox bottom baits 18 mm and 24 mm hardened due to krays.

As the owner said it's a bait and wait water, most fish were caught in the middle channel.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities were poor but we knew that beforehand, we took a generator so we could power our own fridge
Were you happy with them?
They were adequate
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes always do

General comments:
Lake was a wild and pretty lake, effort and persistence will get you rewards.

Fish often caught throughout the day as well as night, leave your baits out longer than you would normally. Krays were hit and miss, best results were plenty of bait in bait boat and leave for up to 18 hrs.

Most baits worked, no fish caught close to dam wall but there were fish showing there all week? I would definitely want to go back to have another crack!

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Fishmeal boilies presented pop up or snowman style and baited up with spomb and throwing stick over an area as big as a tennis court

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes having visited for the first time last year they are as advertised, basic but usable

They are manageable for a weeks holiday but could do with a up grade if possible
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes a quiet and natural looking lake in a remote setting with quality carp present to a very good size
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes a very well run company, hassle free booking

General comments:
My second visit was not the best timing due to heatwave and temps of 30 to 37 degrees daytime, which made daytime fishing quiet to all anglers. Beside the basic facilities the lake and carp stock are a plus and worth a visit

Details of your catches:
11 fish to 52lb 4oz

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We caught on snowman presentations and hinged stiff rig presentations.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities were as expected, they could do with some improvements. An english toilet is a must if we were to return again in the future. The anglers lodge is perfect to use as a base.
