General comments:
This was our 1st trip to old oaks and we weren't disappointed. Mehdi met us on the saturday, showed us around the lake explaining each swim then left us to it. The quality and weight of the fish is exceptional. Our average weight was just under 44lbs in total we had over a 1000lb of fish

Like most french holidays the Fish will move to empty areas of the lake, so ensure the end swims are occupied and spread yourself out.

Name of customer:
Mike Johnson
Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
PEG 1, DAVE - 52.4 mirror PB,47.11 ,37.4 ,34.2 grass.
PEG 2, RICH - 32.1 ,32.2 mirror PB.
PEG 4, IAN - 38.4 , 40.2 , 19 , 39.4 , 32.8 , 33.4 , 55.4 common PB, 37.4 , 46.8 , 32.
PEG 5, MIKE - 52.4 , 47 common PB , 58.5 mirror PB , 48.8 , 38.5 , 38.1 , 41.15.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Getting under the overhanging trees on the far bank where fish were holding up in the shadows. Placing single pop ups in the boat then walking around and dropping 4-5 feet from bank in 3-4 feet of water. Adding freebies (10-20 baits per rod) by hand from far bank. Fresh bait seem to work very well. Resting our swims for a few hours aday really helped. We went with fishmeals and ended up getting fruities from local tackle shop cos the poisson chat were very active and they do like the old fishmeals. Working as a team realy did the trick for us but still the hot weather did not help but it is july.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes everything you need on a drive and survive.🖒
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
