Good Evening Shaun I hope alls ok with you and the business. Fine thanks!
I am booked onto Malvoisine next week and after watching the video on Angling Lines website I was wondering if I could pick your brains about the lake in general and answer me a few questions of which I would be very grateful for. I will list the main questions I would like answering below but any information you feel I would benefit from would be greatly received;
Firstly what is the average depth of the lake and are there shallower or deeper areas?
Seemed pretty uniform in depth – typical French scenario so they can drain easily. Where the outlet sluice is situated is slightly deeper to gather the fish in during draining situations. It was shallow but can’t remember how deep it was to be fair – probably around 4ft.
Are there any known producing spots you could point me towards?
I kept all the rods pretty short all within easy catapult distance. Only fished the one swim. If you look at the map of Malvoisine on the Angling Lines site I set up on the bottom left hand corner of the mushroom island (for want of a better description). I kept bait tricking in the channel to my right only around 3 to 4 rod lengths out and a second spot around 30 – 40 yards out to the left into the wider part of the lake. Both areas produced consistently whilst I was there. There was no feature – just a flat bottom so I simply kept bait trickling onto the same two spots and within a couple of days the light dust/silt covering which had been there when I started turned to a polished off clean area. continue reading…Tags: Malvoisine
Clearview Carp tours will be running fully inclusive trips to Malvoisine from September 2010.
Over to Roy Fulton, Clearview boss to explain the trips;
“The trips to Roseau have booked up really well this year… but unfortunately we have to vacate the lake in September because the shooting season begins. So we’ve decided to run trips to the beautiful Malvoisine lake. The fishing at Malvoisine is always reliable so you can get ready for plenty of fast & furious carp action.
The meeting point is at the Relyon car parks in Dover. Relyon has organised an account for us so you get discounted parking. Once all the cars are parked and tackle loaded, it’s off to Dover for the ferry. Onboard the ferry there will be plenty of time to look around, have a meal and take a look in the shops. continue reading…Tags: Malvoisine
