Holiday date:
Sat 1st Sep to Sat 8th Sep 2018
Name of customer:
Martin Weaire
Number of anglers:
4
Details of your catches:
13 fish
1 x 60lbs
6 x between 40 to 47 lbs
6 x between 30 to 35lbs

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
A range of baits from bottom to pop up boilies wrapped in armourgard to tiger nuts and imitation corn etc.
Most of the fish came from distance that said mid water produced as well.
Fish came at all times but found the night was less productive.
Weather was changeable but no rain, fish were showing to most areas except the bay nearest the car park.
Not one best peg as fish came from most areas, pike were a problem taking back leads and also whilst retrieving lines.
Fish were in great condition and hard fighting.
A few fish were lost as suspect crayfish were damaging terminal line whilst attempting to get at baits.
Never seen so many crayfish but tigernuts were seemed to be left alone.
For me I fished mini stiff hinged pop ups so cant comment really on bottom rigs although some fishes were caught on them but pop ups were the main rigs.
Lake bottom is hard to fine silt, silk weed in some areas but not a problem.

Were the facilities what you expected?
A bit more basic than we expected, a thunder box in the wood which was ok in desperation but a trip to the shower/toilet block was drive back out of the car park down the road turn towards the farm, up a track which took form leaving your peg to arrival of 15 minutes !!!
Shower was ok, toilet ok, charging point and fridge adequate.
The owner/bailiff was great and although we never had any problems I’m sure he would have helped out.
Were you happy with them?
Overall the facilities were just about ok that said the biggest moan we had was the walk from the car park to the pegs 1-4 were hazardous and not for less able anglers.
The gear has to be barrowed along an assault course track not for the faint hearted and a real ankle breaker.
I would guess at least a 400 yd distance to peg 1, if you arrive safely well done.
Do not expect the swims to be angler friendly, mud bank which slopes very unevenly to the waters edge which is at least 2 foot down, take waders/wellies etc to retrieve bait boats fish landing and returns.
It didn’t rain whilst we were there but would expect the banks to be as treacherous as ice.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Definitely would recommend to others but would warn of the bank and walk assault course to swims.

Would you recommend our services to a friend?
I always travel with angling lines and never had a problem, so highly recommend them to anyone.

General comments:
Brilliant lake, great owner bailiff but could be so much better if swim banks and track to them was sorted out, the amenities whilst adequate are too far away for my liking but that said I would go back albeit with someone to carry my gear !!!!

Name of customer:
Jamie Starr
Number of anglers:
4
Details of your catches:
42lb was the only carp out not surprising due to the very high temperatures and we still felt the fish might be coming off the back of spawning.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Keeping cool ! Carp just not interested due to the heat. Carp came out on the last day!

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes. good as described
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes, but would like to go perhaps in Sept. The exceptional heatwave affected it badly for our week.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes. Very good.

Name of customer:
Anthony Roberts
Number of anglers:
4
Details of your catches:
2 x 30lb Mirrors both on the last day

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Fish were spawning on arrival. Gave the fish some space to ensure they had finished and then tried all tactics and bait we had at our disposal with no luck as they fish were just not interested in feeding.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes
Were you happy with them?
Yes more than adequate.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Based on the two fish we caught yes, as they were both in a very good order and fought hard.

I would however recommend that they ensured the fish had spawned prior to traveling to prevent them wasting 6 days like us.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Certainly your services have always been absolutely brilliant.

General comments:
I don't want to moan but had we not been blessed with a strong wind on the second to last day which appeared to provoke a feeding response, I do believe that we would have completely blanked.

I would suggest that the fish had been spawning prior to our arrival as there was not enough activity for them to have all spawned on the one morning we witnessed them. I think that the lake owner should have notified Angling Lines who could have given us the option weather to have travelled or not.

The lake is in a lovely spot and was a pleasure to be around in the nice weather however if the weather had turned wet the woodland bank swims would be very treacherous with their current make up being compacted soil with exposed roots.

General comments:
Fishing was not easy had to work for each fish, fewer fish this time compared to last year but bigger fish caught. Weather was up and down and wind all over the place. But boux never fails to impress with fish in great condition and still as hard fighting as ever. Top venue.

Details of your catches:
Considering it was our first trip to Boux we had a really good week. Between 4 of us we had 31 carp including 6 x 50’s, the biggest being a 55lb 12oz common.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Generally we fishing to the far margin which produced bites on a regular basis but we also found that the fish were quite mobile and if there was an area of the lake that wasn’t being fished they went there pretty quickly so it paid to make sure that rods were moved. A variety of hook baits caught and in general we fished over a spread of boilies although it was certainly worth putting a bed of bait over a section of the far margin and fishing 3 rods to it.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities were as expected and absolutely fine.
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes

General comments:
Boux is a lovely lake and was just what we wanted in terms of tranquillity.

The only improvement I can think of is that when we arrived (at the correct time) there was no sign of life. Eventually we worked out how to get to the lake and which building had the freezer etc so just looked after ourselves but it would have been nice if someone was around to point us in the right direction….
