Details of your catches:
We caught 4 fish due to extreme 42 degrees heat Biggest 45lb some were caught from the shallows and others in mid water around 11ft on plastic baits and sticky bait krill, the water is vey weedy at the moment off the bank just a heads up

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Plastic baits and krill sticky baits

Overall lovely venue with beautiful surroundings. Overall just felt like the lake could have some work done to make it even nicer, we found lowering the bait boat into the water awkward



Holiday date:
Sat 6th Jul to Sat 13th Jul 2019
Name of customer:
David Scott
Number of anglers:
4
Details of your catches:
28 fish landed during the week between 4 anglers.
3 fish under 20lb's
6 fish 20-30lb's
7 fish 30-40lb's
9 fish 40-50lb's
3 fish over 50lb's - 51lb, 51lb 4 oz & 56lb 4oz

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Crays seemed quite active in all depths so reduced reliance on boilies as the week progressed. Dynamite tiger nuts never fail!
Some fish came from the shallow margins close to the far bank patrol routes but the majority were caught in the silt between weedbeds in c6ft of water. Due to water temperature and the sun the weed growth just in the week we were there was phenomenal!


Were the facilities what you expected?
Absolutely! Clean house, fridge and freezer are a luxury and after a quick hello with Philippe when you arrive he leaves you to get on with the fishing.
Additional toilet in the woods is 100% better than a portaloo, for those that have moaned prevuiously, accept its basic and embrace nature!
Paths are a little uneven but thats the Boux charm.

Were you happy with them?
Very happy.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes, have done before & will again.
Boux isnt an easy venue, fish do hold up in specific areas and if they dont move you can't catch whats not in front of you!
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes. Always found the team at Anglings Lines professional and helpful. Thank you.

General comments:
Fish clearly had spawned. Regrettably not all survive this and there were 4 fish carcasses in advanced stages of decomposition caught in the margin reeds on the dam wall, it would have been appreciated if these could have been removed.
Also several fish were trailing line where we assume the pike are attacking back leads causing bite offs. Best advice, don't use backleads, at Boux its suicidal and you don't need them.
Final moan at our fellow anglers, its not acceptable to leave cans, bottles, batteries, disacarded line etc. in the swims. If you did it in the UK you'd be banned. Boux is a beautiful lake and its a privilege to fish it, treat it with the respect it deserves!

*Angling Lines Note* Thankyou for your feedback. Chris now confirms that action will be taken to improve the anglers pathway (which has many trip hazzards at present) over this winter in conjunction with the owner of the land. In the meantime anglers have the option to boat their tackle to their swims on the wooded bank or use the dam wall bank, which is a flat walk from the car park.

Name of customer:
Glenn Wickham
Number of anglers:
3
Details of your catches:
Only 2 fish caught 35lb mirror and 57lb mirror
2 fish were lost

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Small pop ups, imitation corn at distance to far margins, small beds of party mix and boilies

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes they are perfect for your needs.
Were you happy with them?
Yes but they are a little to far from the bank and you need to plan your trips there to charge batteries etc.
Dunny in the woods is a life saver.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes, a long drive from Calais though 6hrs
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes

General comments:
On arrival was met by Phillipe. Nice helpful man but no English spoken but we managed to communicate, the track to the main swims is a bit tricky but not as bad as people make out, I’m 66 and made it ok if you take your time, swims good but slippery when wet, overhanging trees could do with a trim to help casting, lake is in very nice condition with very little weed. Crayfish were not active so no problem, fish spawned later in the week so explained why not many fish were caught plus the temperature reached 31 degrees by mid week.

In all we enjoyed our trip and the wildlife is a bonus (friendly rats, mice and Coypu). Would be nice to have facilities closer to the fishing area, the dunny in the woods is fine giving you lovely views of the woods and and lake while you contemplate your fishing 😂

Details of your catches:

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Can’t comment, very slow fishing

Were the facilities what you expected?
Worse, nobody greeted us had to find the facilities ourselves, clear low level window in the shower is rather interesting apparently there was a lakeside toilet, not sure if what we found could be described as anything other than a shed with a hole in the floor
Were you happy with them?
Not really for the overall cost of the venue they are pretty poor and electrics sockets are dated and not safe
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Not as it is at present, doesn’t need a lot doing but looks like nobody has spent even €1 on the place in years
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes, but more help could be provided to help anglers when booking depending on where they are travelling from in the UK

General comments:
Would not fish this venue again, 2 of us left after 2 days to go and fish elsewhere not a comfortable place to winter fish lakeside toilet is embarrassing, very thankful there was only 3 of us track around lake isn’t even wheelbarrow friendly, not suitable to the older generation.

*Angling Lines note* We're sorry the venue did not suit your requirements and appreciate it is not for everyone - we state on the site that the lakeside wc is a basic composting toilet and that the track to the wooded bank can be difficult to navigate - but there is always the option of fishing from the dam wall which is a much more even walk from the car park.

We do apologise that Philippe was not there to welcome you to the lake, he was not far away and would have come down to the venue within the afternoon, although it is correct that he does not speak good english. We have amended the info pack to make anglers aware that he may not be there until after your time of arrival and you are welcome to get settled and start fishing.
