Details of your catches:
Over 30 fish, everyone banking something over the week with some really hot conditions. Medhi is a credit to French waters, very knowledgable and always smiling !!
Couple of the party mentioned they would like Medhi to maybe walk around the lake a couple of times a week just to talk to the anglers and offer his knowledge at each swim but this is just a recommendation, far from a complaint!!

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Pop up corn, balanced wafters or a mix on basic rigs or Slip D rigs did the business during the week. All bait supplied by Mainline plus Medhi's party mix spodded/boated out over the spods. 5-10 spods per spot twice a day.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, basic but very clean and tidy when we arrived. Shower decent for a French lake.
Were you happy with them?
Yes, very!!
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes, planning on returning.......
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes, very good, always picked up the phone when we called and answered all emails very quickly.

Details of your catches:
Over 50 fish caught! with all anglers catching, lots of big grassies out to 51lb , and some awesome long commons (39'8) and big mirrors to 49lb, 6 forties in total, with two sturgeon over 60lb making an appearance also. The Fully Scaled was caught by Paul Baker at 48lb+ what a fish that is!

Fish seemed to be held up on the no fishing bank, so Point Les Anse and Les Saules pegs had more bites from drop offs in margins with Open water not producing the goods on this occasion.

Fihmeal Boilies (spotted fin Smokey Jack, RG Formula etc) and particle produced with snowman and single pop up pressentations

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Snowman rigs over fishmeal boilies, Spotted Fin Smokey Jack, RG Formula and DNA S7, fished in the drop off all the fish were down the no fishing bank, generally caught within a few rod lengths in the gullies. a few pegs did well putting lots of bait, other were nicking fish on singles.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Brilliant Facilities, Clean, Tidy, loads of supermarkets and Mcdonalds etc within 7 mins drive. Massive Chest freezer and fridge, UK sockets for charging shower was warm and powerful. The Lake is extremely secure and many have said it before but Medi is the nicest and most helpful lake owner i have ever met.
Were you happy with them?
yes better than expected Brilliant
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Highly recommend, its a medium to hard lake, we as a group did really well, no nuisance fish although the grassies and small cats can be a bit of a pain. A Great Venue and Medi makes the place, Highly recommend, but you do have to work for your fish, a great challenge
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes, was very easy everything went to plan.

General comments:
We keep promising ourselves that we will avoid July/August in France but keep going back. all venues are the same this time of year where you think you are getting 7 days fishing but its only 7 nights as the fish just hold up under trees & this lake is no different from any other, however there are some spectacular fish here & the lake is in great condition with depths from 3-14 feet. we didn't over bait because you never know what has gone in the week before.
The difference between this lake & any other is the owner Medhi, i can quite honestly say that if you could choose your perfect neighbor then this chap would be him, what a top bloke.
The question is will we return? 100% but we will choose some cooler months next time as 37 degrees can play havoc with your catch rate.

This is carp fishing Boys.

Name of customer:
Ian Chidley
Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
I had 5 x 40+ up to 44lb, 3 x 30 biggest 35lb and 2 x 20lb
10 fish with 3 lost
44lb common
43lb grass carp
42 lb grass carp
41. 08 mirror
41 lb common
35 lb mirror
32 lb common
30 lb mirror
25 lb common
21 lb common

My brother caught 3 x 40 lb + and 4 x 30 lb+ fish all grass carp one estimated well above 50 but it jumped the net before a chance to weight it. A true tale of the one that got away :-)

We also caught over 10 baby catfish between 3-10 pounds it appears the cats have bred and at least two years spawning are being caught.


Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Best tactics were to fish plastic and real sweetcorn on the hook over a bed or Medhi's partiblend. Had some success with bright yellow pineapple pop ups but the majority of the fish came to corn.
I started at the far end of the lake in Le Chene and my brother in the beach swim.

Medhi had given us some advice about the bars and possible spots to fish and I settled for the gravel at about 95 yards.

I had two fish the first night fishing over a small area of particles. Nothing on the second night and then 2 fish the following night.

The weather was against us, very hot, high pressure and blue skies. All the bites were coming from 11:00 pm till 4am.

My brother hadn't had a bite in "the beach" swim and decided to move to swim 1 nearest the shower block where we could see crashing and with-in 2 hours had 2 grass carp.

After another quiet night in "Le Chene" I moved to "the point " swim and caught every night fishing to the far bank about 20 yards off. That was the line fish were showing, also I had on rod on the plateau about half way across which produced as well.

My brother also caught every night and on one occasion we both had 40lb +grass carp at the same time which made netting and photos interesting.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The lake itself is fantastic, very quiet and a good all round venue. The swims aren't too tightly placed and most have a lot of water to fish, its a hard lake in my opinion but if you work hard and don't over do the baiting to start you can catch and start to build up your swim.

Medhi is a great guy and will offer his knowledge if you ask, always ready to make more partiblend or anything else for that matter.

It was always sold as a drive and survive so all I expected was a clean working shower, running water, good fridge and freezer and toilet which we had.
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Absolutely, with the caveat this is definitely not a runs water but big fish can be had with work and a little thought.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes I have used angling lines for at least ten years now and never had a bad experience.

General comments:
Although the really hot weather and high pressure made fishing harder it was a good week.
Reading some of the other weeks feedback we did expect a lot of issues with liners and the sturgeon wiping us out, however we were pleasantly surprised I don't think I had any in the week even fishing from two different swims.

Medhi seems to really care about his fishery and is one of the most welcoming and generally nicest people I have meet. I will be back to fish this lake again and that's one of the few I have said that about.

The only issue for Medhi I can see in the future is the number of small cats being caught, we were asked to retain them and he is taking out of the lake but the number we caught seems to suggest quiet a large spawn.

I did talk to him about the possibility of providing nets, unhooking mats and weigh slings which would protect his carp and save a lot of bulk for anglers travelling to the lake. That is one of my bugbears when having to put wet slings mats in the car for a long journey home, oh the sweet smell of success turns a bit sour after 5 hours in a hot car lol.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Mehdi's freshly prepared partiblend with Corn on the rods

Were the facilities what you expected?
To find a cabin with a good shower, toilet, large freezer big enough for ALOT of bait and food, a large fridge big enough for many anglers and fresh running water with a sink was a huge bonus to the trip! We went there for the fish laroussi had to offer so finding these only made the trip even better
Were you happy with them?
Very happy, as said before was a huge bonus to trip
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes, and planning on returning with more friends
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Very easy to book and angling lines suggested they changed our ferry to shorten our driving without us even asking, which was good.

General comments:
Upon arrival we were greeted by owner Mehdi, who was very welcoming. He explained a few things and let us know how it was fishing. We then set off looking for a swim. Over the week we really had to work at our fishing in order to get bites. We were fortunate enough to be able to change swims which allowed us to move as the fish did. Mehdi mentioned how the previous anglers did well on his partiblend so we bought some off him which chose to be a great move, and allowed us to catch many more fish. Mehdi was a great host over the week and provided us with any information we needed. If your prepared to put in some effort at laroussi you will catch. See you soon, we'll be back!
