We arrived at mas bas sunday early hours 9th september and what a cracking week we had everything was perfect we had 49 carp from 21lb to 45lb 13oz. We all enjoyed it fantastic

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We wrapped our baits but wasn't working so went back to basics and never looked back fish after fish using spicey boilies by starbaits never used before but never let us down 9kg used over the 6days

Were the facilities what you expected?
10/10 was so perfect place clean and tidy stunning views and perfect weather but will fly next time as having a good chat with Gilles and finding out how easy it is to get there and looking at the hired fishing gear they provide was good, so we no next time.
Were you happy with them?
It was fantastic and will be back 2020 if have available dates.

Name of customer:
Davina Higginson
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
11x 20's
8x 30's
3x 40's
1x Grassy

I only fished 4 to 5 hours a day as the weather was lovely, mid 30's most the week, so I spent most afternoons having a chill out by the pool and a few beers! We also had a few trips out to the local towns (which we highly recommend, the local scenery is superb)!

No need to fish at night as the early morning and evening were great bite times. Fished 2 rods most the time as we have several double runs and trying to get 2 fish on the bank with just one angler was tricky, the girls did a great job helping out with the photos and helping me unhook and weigh the fish!

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
I baited regularly with Urban Baits Spicy Red Fish and Nutracker, 5-10 baits over each spot every 15 or so minutes. Bites came really quick, you will know if you are in the wrong as you won't get a take within half an hour

Simple D-Rigs with size 4 Krank hooks and double bottom 22mms worked well. I even used triple bottom baits at times to combat the poisson chat and still got bites. Only 2 fish caught on balanced Tigers.

I fished most the week from in front the house, the best spots were the aerator (when it was turned on), middle of the lake and the far margin, casting slightly to the left.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Facilities inside and outside were great. Kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed. We used the BBQ almost every night.

The unhooking mats, weighing tripod etc was brilliant; made weighing so much easier.
Were you happy with them?
Yes!
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Absolutely! Giles and Sharon were fantastic, friendly hosts.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Definitely, Angling Lines were great from start to finish.

General comments:
Overall a superb holiday. We stopped half way on the travel down, we stayed in Orleans Friday night and arrived on the Saturday afternoon. The drive is a fair way from Calais, but the roads are clear and easy to follow.

Name of customer:
Dave Atkinson
Number of anglers:
4
Details of your catches:
With the weather being excessively hot up to 40 deg we thought the fishing would be difficult, this was not the case we caught 108 fish in total and each of the 3 main anglers had a forty, at times we did not have time to put are drop back indicators on before we had a run, we had several doubles and 2 x triples on the bank, the main action was during the day, so fishing at night was not required.
Total catches 3 x 40s 11 x 30s 57 x 20s 37 x teens (this included 2 x koi)

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Best baits, balanced tiger nut or red spicy fish boilies over a bed of pellet/boilies and particle, fished close to the margins and in open water.
End tackle 6 to 10 inch hook link, 3 oz lead to a size 2 hook worked best for us


Were the facilities what you expected?
As this was our second visit to Mas Bas we knew what to expect, the addition of the down stairs accommodation was very nice, the facilities were excellent

Hard weeks Fishing with 30 degree sunny weather everyday but managed to get 39 fish our biggest of 39lb with several other 30’s

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Plastic popped up sweetcorn with regular baiting intervals. Also got a few on the spicy and nutcracker boilies.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Better than expected, didn’t put a Bivvy up all week just fished and slept under the veranda. The ladies loved it being so close to us with us all having a very social week. A few dinners interuppted by a screaming reel which always went down with a few cheers!!
Were you happy with them?
Yes very happy

General comments:
Cracking venue really is the perfect compromise between fishing and a family holiday when everyone can stay together but do there own thing.

Rebecca Tolhurst
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
We had 64 fish in total -
x17 Doubles
x31 20's
x15 30's
an x1 40
several grass carp

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We fished to the margins, the right sided shallow bay behind the aerator, midwater and to the right side of the island. Fishing days only, spicy baits worked best.
Size 4 hooks
Long rigs
Small amount and steady baiting
We had around 20 poisson chat for the whole week, not a problem just make sure you wrap your baits and if you have several little beeps on a rod just make sure you redo it.
We had several double takes and a few fish taking it on the drop.
If the weather gets too hot be sure to look around the lake as we found them far left on one day.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities were beyond expectation. Very clean and tidy, could not fault the venue or the hosts. Everything we needed was available.
Plenty of shade with the large veranda, really needed when the temperature hits over 30 degrees.
The pool is clean and refreshing and the outside areas a great place to sunbathe and BBQ
Were you happy with them?
More than happy with everything. We've been to France several times and have found some places lacking in cleanliness or facilities so were surprised and more than impressed with everything at Mas Bas.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
We would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes we would recommend.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Listen to Gilles !!!! He will point out your spots when you arrive, and answer any questions, if you struggle a bit as we did , we asked him to pop down and he was straight there to put us on track and the fish came .
12” inch hook link long hair minimum size 4 hooks , nothing complicated, just 6 to 10 boilies round each rod , wrap boilies in Korda wrap , this kept the crayfish at bay .


Were the facilities what you expected?
The house and grounds are immaculate and there is everything you need for cooking . A washing machine (you’ll need powder/tablets) and dishwasher ( tablets provided).
It really is a home from home

General comments:
Well where do I start, this place is an absolute gem, I’m sure many of you will be thinking “that’s too far” as we did, and it is a long drive, but as I got out of the van and was welcomed by Gilles , I walked up the steps to the lake for the first time and WOW!!! Instantly forgetting the journey and a huge smile appeared on my face.

It is the most beautiful site and so peaceful, Gilles and Sharon are fantastic and can’t do enough to help and give any fishing advice or places to eat, local shops, nothing is too much trouble, our French wasn’t great and Sharon kindly even booked a restaurant for us after Gilles had been down and given us directions to each and put them in my phone maps.

The facilities are awesome and the fishing was at times hectic , double and even triple takes were had, the fish are stunning and we had a relaxing chilled week with lots of takes. We arrived home late last night and are already sorting dates to go back next year. We are going to fly and hire rods etc from Gilles , it’s all top end stuff and means a small tackle bag is all we would need, everything else Gilles has or can get. Gilles also can take you for a session on the river Lotte , which we are going to book too.

Again this is perfect for a fishing holiday, nothing better than a good nights sleep before catching carp through the day in such beautiful surroundings. Thankyou Gilles and Sharon, great job well done.

Details of your catches:
Great fishing. 45 fish during the week, including 3 forties! The biggest of which was 45lb 15oz. Not much fishing after dark as the action in the daylight was so good.

All of our fishing was done from the house as it's so comfortable and much easier with the 3 small children we had with us.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We had a lot of success using tigers which also kept us away from the poisson chat.

The margins seemed to produce better at night but open water was where we tended to have most the hits from during the day.

We didn't spend enough time stalking at the top end due to having family and little children with us, however there were certainly plenty more fish to be caught up there during the day!

Were the facilities what you expected?
The house was great, very clean and exactly what we were after. Couldn't have asked for much else.
Were you happy with them?
Very much so.

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Definitely.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
