Week 18 - 28/7-4/8/2018

Bob and his 13 year old son Oscar returned this year for the week. They fished from swim 2 and the fishing was really for Oscar's benefit although he wasn't very good at getting up in the night when there were fish on. They landed 7 carp to 33lb but lost another 10.

The weather was extremely hot and the majority of the fish came at night when it was cooler.

Week 17 21/7-28/7/2018

We had a family group from Belgium stay in the chalet as a lake exclusive this week. Erik and his son Robbe fished swim 2 , Patrick in swim 3 and Erik's brother in law in swim 7. The ladies didn't fish. 

Patrick caught a 21kg mirror (46lb 4oz) which is the current lake record along with a 12 kg mirror and 2 commons - 6kg & 7kg. Robbe landed a 15kg grass carp which escaped from the cradle before photos were taken, a 15kg mirror, an 8kg mirror and 2 commons - 5kg & 6kg. Erik caught his new personal best of 17kg.

The weather was oppressively hot and as the fish are only coming out at night or early morning the family visited Lac du Der every day to swim and have lunch.

Week 15 7/7-14/7/2018

Mike and Dan walked around the lake with us and decided to fish from swim 3. They had brought Cell with them which they use successfully at their home waters but is not a successful bait here. They didn't have a touch on Saturday night so decided to try the venue's own bait and started catching on Sunday night/Monday morning. Between them they landed 13 carp to 37lb 4oz which was Dan's new personal best. Dan had a 25lb Grass Carp and on the last morning Mike had a 31lb mirror. They had brought a trophy with them for the most weight caught in the week and decided that it was a draw this time.

All of the fish came between 8pm and 10am when it is coolest except one on Wednesday afternoon which was an overcast day and only 20 degrees. It was another hot week here.

Our friends Daz and Julie came on Sunday with another grocery delivery for us to restock our freezer and larder with UK sausages, bacon, baked beans etc. Daz is one of our regular helpers and his bivvy and bedchair live in our shed usually. Daz fished swim 5 which is his favourite and landed a catfish, a 25lb common, a stockie and 2 mirrors - 35lb4oz on Friday morning and a 34lb 12oz on Saturday morning.

Tuesday morning we were joined by a Dutch group who had rented the Chalet for a short week - Anoop, his girlfriend Samantha, her friend Alyssa and his friend Erwin. Anoop and Samantha fished swim 7 and had a catfish and on Saturday morning he had a 20lb common. Erwin fished swim 1 and landed a 23lb mirror on Wednesday morning.

On the night that England played Croatia, we had a late dinner and all sat in the dining room and watched the match on the temporary TV that we had set up just for the World Cup. It was a noisy evening with highs and lows and the Dutch group in the Chalet said that they had learnt some new words!

Week 14 30/6 - 7/7/2018

Karl and Shelley came to celebrate a significant birthday for Karl and he had a gorgeous 43lb8oz mirror carp on Tuesday morning which was his birthday - just one of the 7 carp that he caught this week. He had achieved a new PB on Monday of a 31lb mirror and this smashed it. He also used some light gear and fished for roach, rudd and tench. They fished in swim 2.

Harry and Petra returned this year with their dog Luca and fished swim 5. Harry landed 5 carp to 17kg/37lb7oz.

It was a challenging week with temperatures going up to 30 degrees and a thunderstorm Wednesday night and showery rain on Thursday morning. All fish were caught between 8 o'clock in the evening and 9 o'clock in the morning. It was too hot during the day.

Swim 2 new jetty

Something that we had intended to do for a while was create a jetty from swim 2 to enable the anglers to fish towards the bay easily, rather than wade through mud and foliage. This week we managed to find the time to do it. It is not a job that you can do with anglers on the lake as it was noisy and the boat was used to transport the wood etc.

It is a nine metre wooden pathway on the right hand side of the swim with a platform over the water and it will make it easier to play fish from that swim.

Tackling Tackle

Great news

We are going to offer Tackle hire! We are often asked what tackle is best for fishing here, and in order to help anyone whose tackle set-up  is not yet complete, or simply if you don't have room in the car, or prefer to keep some luggage  space free for that wine shop on the way back, you will now be able to hire tackle directly at the lake.

We will update shortly with what will be available and the prices. Good tackle can really make a difference catching carp and it also helps to ensure the safety of our carp which is very important.

If you are not sure exactly what tackle to bring, please don't hesitate to give us a call.

Cheers Barry & Yve

Week 7 12/5 - 19/5/2018

Week 7 saw 4 workmates come for an Angling Lines exclusive long weekend of Saturday to Tuesday. They fished from swims 2, 3, 5 and 7 during the days only, except for Chris who did stay out all night on Sunday. There were 3 new personal bests for Chris, Frank and Steve - Chris with a 34lb common, Steve with a 33lb8oz common and Frank had a 14lb common. They mostly used the venue bait and caught 8 carp. They were unfortunate with the weather as there were thunderstorms Saturday and Monday nights and it rained during most of their stay.

As there were no other clients for the rest of the week, our friends Daz and Julie popped over for a few days with a grocery delivery for us. We offer a food package and need regular supplies of English bacon, sausages and baked beans for the cooked breakfasts. It was lovely to see them and they looked after the lake for us also while we had a couple of days away. Julie doesn't fish but Daz caught a few fish too. He stalked in swim 3 on Thursday and within an hour he caught a 40lb12oz mirror and a 30lb12oz common. In total Daz had 8 carp.

Week 6 was a mixed week of 3 Dutch Superweekenders and 3 English brothers. 

Max, Rene and Boy chose to fish from swims 4, 5 and 6 and landed 10 carp to 36lb11oz (16.7kg). Boy moved to swim 3 for his final night and had 2 mirrors of 36lb4oz and 27lb14oz.

Gary, John and Mick fished from swims 1 and 7 and then John moved to swim 2 after a couple of days. When the Dutch went home on Wednesday morning Gary moved to swim 3 and managed 2 new Personal Bests - a 35lb common and then a 38lb mirror.

Everbody had at least 1 30lb carp during the week. 26 carp landed, 3 x 20's and 13 x 30's.

The weather was warm and pleasant and we all ate outside most evenings.
