Holiday date:
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?

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?

General comments:
After a very lond drive I knew in the first 5 minutes of seeing the venue it was worth it the place is stunning. Sharon and Gilies are very welcoming and get you settled in straight away.

I only fished a couple of hours morning and night with my 11 year old son and the lake always puduced.

This is a great place for all the family spending the days round the pool or out to the local village or even a close by water park.

We will definitely be booking again for next year and can’t wait. Thank you for a amazing holiday Mas Bas.

Details of your catches:
Lost count of the number of fish I had, lots of commons, mirrors and grass carp to mid 30's.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Started the week fishing from the main peg right behind the house but found I couldnt get my rods in quick enough before one of them rattled off. Best tactics seemed to be stalking up near the snags at the top end of the lake. Keep quiet and you'll see the fish. Boilie over the top of a handful of freebies. Nice easy fishing. Please see a couple of videos below:

Details of your catches:
Mixture of commons & mirrors 38 fish caught, total weight 664lb, lost 21 fish

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Stiff fluro carbon so the hair can't move too much, as I found the fish I lost every time the boilie which was wrapped in armo mesh was caught over hook point. Probably due to the small cats keep picking up the bait. Boilies used were bait works monster red & royal marine 18mm.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes had everything we needed.
Were you happy with them?
Yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes indeed

General comments:
We had 2 weeks at Mas Bas. The journey is long however well worth it. Beautiful surroundings, the pool was excellent we all loved it. The fishing was good the weather was excellent mainly 30 degrees every day. The house has every thing you need and is very clean also the area is so peaceful.

Plenty of wildlife we did see some deer, kingfisher, wood pecker. Gilles was very helpful we did have one issue and Gilles did his upmost and got it sorted. We wanted to book next year same time but dates have already gone. Good luck to Gilles & Sharon, we will be back, loved it.

Name of customer:
Stanley Watkins
Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
Very much under fished and should have had a lot more fish. This was due mainly to me suffering from heart failure and consequently was recovering for two days from the two day drive from Caen. Two caught, two lost, not particularly big but good fighters never the less. Common Carp 16lb 4oz, Goldfish 13lb 4oz.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Quest baits Rajah Spice, and Gilles' own boillies. Both hair rigged with a large floating fake sweetcorn tip.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Having been several times before we knew what to expect and as usual were not disappointed.
Were you happy with them?
Yes, extremely happy.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Without doubt. Especially someone with a family who are not necessarily into fishing. The remoteness of the venue, and the walks, and peace and quiet, and the availability of the swimming pool all go toward making this an all round family venue. The local town is only 15 minutes drive away and has everything needed, Supermarket, Pizza House, and Restaurant.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes. I have done several times.

General comments:
Although I was very ill at the time, it was still a relaxing holiday.
