Details of your catches:
There were 2 of us Fishing. We caught 33 Carp. We only fished a few hours in the morning and evening. We would of probably caught another 20 as my Bait boat batteries ran out and I’d not brought the charger. The Fish seemed to stay in the Margins and as soon as we dropped the bait before the bait boat was back I’d had a take. I or my friend never used three rods as we were getting double takes.
The fish were real scrappers. Although not as big as on the Main Lake, we still had Mirrors from mid doubles up to 25lb. Had some lovely commons at 20lb up to 24lb a few upper mid doubles. The Grass Carp from 10lb2oz to 24lb 8oz. I lost 4 grass Carp, one at the net 3 snagged me at the top end but jumped and freed themselves.
One morning my friend was asleep as we were there to Fish but also to relax.
I had 6 Fish that I had to land myself. Now these Fish see the net and refuse to come in. It’s a battle.

Great time Gilles and Sharon were very helpful. Having the pool helped for an afternoon cool off and relax.

Best spots and tactics tiger nuts tipped with plastic corn. I wrapped my Boilies but my friend found a spot double 20mm Raja spice unwrapped and he was getting plenty of bites... Obviously we had to weigh, photo, so it’s easier if there’s two.

Great place, different from some lakes where you may only get 4 fish or less all week even if they’re bigger.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Bait boating to the left hand side before the first set of old dead twigs straight to the bank. Turn in just before where there’s a peg opposite the willow tree.

Dropping tiger nuts tipped with corn under the willow tree. The poison chat can be a nuisance so take Korda bait wrap if they’re about. But as I say my mate didn’t bother and caught plenty when he fished. He lost 3 . I never fished Thursday as had a bit of sunstroke. But the Raja spice or Tuna and Garlic 22mm off Gilles worked fine. Tried pop up plastic dumbbells but just basic blow back rigs got our Fish.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes fine cooking facilities if you want to cook. Bedroom was fine double bed and my mate had a single upstairs. No complaints.
Were you happy with them?
Yes , personally I’m not that dedicated to sit in my bivvie for a week. Each to there own like a shower and a fridge for cold drinks.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes. If you want to do a few hours Fishing in the morning and evening and catch some nice fish without waiting all day for maybe one bite it’s a great place in beautiful surroundings.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes.

General comments:
Very happy. If you bring a bait boat as the fish seem to stay a lot in the margins bring your charger.

Name of customer:
Linda Kennedy
Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
We had a bit of a slow start as we were fishing with unwrapped bait so we had a few catfish to start but we went out to a local fishing shop and got what we needed and after that we caught carp. We had about 6 in all but lost about 4. Our largest catch was just over 27 pounds.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Wrapping the bait.

Were the facilities what you expected?
We really loved the facilities. The photos do them justice but it is always a relief when the photos match up to reality!
Were you happy with them?
We were very happy. We spent most of our time on the patio and did bbq every night sovwe didn’t use most of the kitchen facilities but there is everything there that you may need. The rooms are all comfortable with good quality sheets, towels etc. We enjoyed the pool.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
We would, and have recommended the venue. We also had a look around the other house and lake which was also lovely. Hopefully we will return ourselves one day. Sharon and Giles were very helpful.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes. We have!

General comments:
We loved our holiday. The accommodation was lovely and there is a village nearby with everything you may need and larger supermarkets not far away.

Sat 4th Aug to Sat 11th Aug 2018
Name of customer:
Tony Harbour
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
Grass Carp (14.10, 15.10), Mirror (13.10, 15.07, 17.06, 25.03, 30.01), Common (19.11, 17.03, 22.10, 29.11) lost around 3 or 4. Only fished a few hours morning & evenings.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Brought around 15kg of boilies with me, caught using either 2 x 15mm baits in snowman setup, 2 x 15mm pop-ups or 24mm - thought these would stop the Poisson Chat but they will eat anything so ended up being good sport for the kids!

As the weather was so hot, all the fish were stacked in the shallow end of the lake, caught 2 using traditional methods, the rest were caught stalking either off the top or free-lined boilies with a handful of freebies near the snags/under overhanging trees.

Korda Armo-mesh is essential! crayfish love a boilie on a hair!

Were the facilities what you expected?
Facilities were awesome, the house is traditional, rustic French which is just perfect. Swimming pool was a massive bonus as we spent most days lounging round in the heat!
The area is very peaceful and the perfect place to relax.
Were you happy with them?
definitely
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?

General comments:
Sharon & Gilles were wonderful hosts, Gilles really knows his lakes so make sure you listen to his advice. They were easy to get hold of if we ever needed anything and nothing was too much trouble! Sharon gave us some excellent places to visit with the kids which was a real bonus and meant we all got to enjoy the region.

We can't wait to go back and are looking forward to our next visit to Mas Bas!

Details of your catches:
Caught loads of fish, wrote down 50+ but I guess I had over 60 . I fished just mornings and evenings most days. Evenings were crazy, couldn't keep 3 rods in the water and I'd had enough by 10pm. Most fish were 20 plus, several 28s, 29s and 30s. Plenty of repeats so I think I had most of them. Some great looking fish, had a lovely koi and a fully scaled that looked like it had never been caught. Grass carp were a bit of a pain (I've never liked them much) but they were active all day.

Best carp was 32lb and had it 3 times in 4 days. Biggest grass carp was 26lb, had it several times too. My daughter had the 26 grass too, for some reason she declined a photo with it.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
I took my own boilies but due to very high numbers of possoin chat I used tigers and the bait boat. Even with just a couple of handfuls per rod I got through nearly 20kg.

Fish were not showing but were clearly in the shallows due to the amount of mud they were digging up.

During the morning it was mainly grass carp, but from 5 or 6pm the carp started feeding and it just went crazy. 2 or 3 fish on at once several times.

Bottom of the lake is very soft clay and it's very shallow so the bait boat worked best. Casting 70 yards with 4oz leads into 2ft of water with a soft bottom isn't a good idea. If I wasn't so lazy I could have set up much nearer the fish and just fished 5 to 10 yds out, but the BBQ, fridge and electric lights kept me near the house.

Watch out for the big snag right in front of the platform, didn't lose any fish but had my net a few times. Looks like an old concrete lampost with steel poking out.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Pool was great, house was lovely rustic France, lakeside area was great. Cat was friendly, but deaf.
Were you happy with them?
Yes, a great time was had by all.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes, for an easy water with plenty of runs and family friendly facilities.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes
