Name of customer:
Simon Davidson
Number of anglers:
5
Details of your catches:
A grand total of 54 fish between 5 anglers finishes a superb weeks fishing at Beaurepaire lake.
With 2 x 50lb + carp
47lb grass carp
5 x 40lb + mirror carp topped up with numerous 30s and the odd 20 and a few cats.
Excellent weeks fishing.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We all used similar tactics from start to finish, baitboat with mixed particles and boilies dropped on any feature that the sonar picked up.
Hook baits from manilla wafters, sweet corn to pop ups all seemed to work.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Although we had a fantastic week fishing at Beaurepaire and would definitely recommend it for a party of 4 or less who want to catch a few carp.
The facilities were adequate but underwhelming. Fridge/freezer facilities were ok. Showers were not great. Toilet was fine but take your own paper.
Were you happy with them?
For a drive and survive package any facilities were welcome. We just thought if was given a bit of an upgrade they could be a great addition for the holiday.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Would definitely recommend to parties of 4 or less looking for a relatively easy water with carp to 60lb I’m told. Biggest we had was 53lb. Good location from Calais, local shop was great and close by.
Had tabacco shop in village and a pizza take away.

General comments:
first time we have all fished france and would definitley return again. facilities as mentioned more than do the job, short drive from calais and easy to find. supermarket in Guignicourt 10-15 minute drive from pontavert with butchers and fresh fruit in store too. met sophie on arrival more than welcoming popped down few times throughout the week but mostly left to it but was only a phonecall away.


Holiday date:
Sat 8th Jun to Sat 15th Jun 2019
Name of customer:
Mark Hooker
Number of anglers:
5
Details of your catches:
15 Carp ( 6 x 20s , 8 x 30s , 1 x 40)
2 Catfish, 1 at 43lb and 1 ( for those he hasn’t mentioned it to yet!) 112lb 3oz lake record caught by Chris. Thanks again for the beer Sophie!!

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We used various brand boilies, bottom baits and pop ups standard rigs, all caught fish. Best tactic found to be find the fish and then small beds of boilie and pellet. We had strong winds through the week and the fish tended to be showing more on the cabin side.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, second time we’ve been here. New shower is decent, clean and plenty of room.
Were you happy with them?
Yes, we brought a bbq and used that every day. Kitchen is pretty basic but you could get by if you needed to. Large freezer for bait and 3 normal fridges are very handy.
A big improvement though would be some outside seating at the cabins, sure there was a table and chairs outside last time we came?
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes, as an exclusive booking
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Always

General comments:
A nice lake that’s an easy drive from Calais. Fish were all in good condition so soon after spawning.
Lake owners are friendly and close by if you need them but happy to let you crack on otherwise.
Not sure I’d choose it as a non exclusive trip as there are no swims as such, but for an exclusive social, the two spits are pretty good to all fish from.
Could do with a bit of clearing in the snaggy areas as still a lot of fallen branches from the storms the previous week.

General comments:
Fishing
The fishing was extremely slow, I only landed to 2 fish the biggest being a 45lb mirror, I thought when we had the heavy rain the fishing would improve it did not, I did only fish five nights, the lake it’s difficult to describe is not a runs water, it’s not a big fish water.

The Lake
It was a nice lake but I would like to fish with more than four anglers as I feel it would be quite cramped with more there are two points facing each other this does cause issues one does need to be removed.

I only have one complaint, it regards a lack of action from the owners\bailiffs
There was a very bad storm there was a lot of damage caused several trees down some in the lake there was a lot of floating debris in the lake my only concern was the lack of it from the owners, they did not contact us to see if everybody was okay all the anglers did suffer damage due to the high winds I believe a visit from them on the night of the storm would not have been amiss, it was myself and the other anglers remove the floating debris from the lake if we had not done this the lake would not have been fishable.

The surrounding area
The lake is situated between Reims and Laon and only just over a couple of hours from Calais, there are plenty of places to visit if you want to go out as a lovely cathedral at Laon and one of most famous cathedrals in Reims, up the road there is a memorial to a First World War tank battle well worth the visit.

*Angling Lines note* Thank you for your detailed feedback. We're sorry to hear you felt that not enough concern was shown during the storm, after working with Sophie and Bernard for many years this is very surprising to read and we are sure it was not intentional. Regarding the debris in the lake after the storm, we urge anglers to give us or the lake owners a quick call with issues such as this at the time so we can rectify them.
