General comments:
A really enjoyable week at old oaks, all things considered for the time of year it wasnt too uncomfortable. We had high winds and wet days but the temperature never dropped into the minuses. With regards to the fishing we didnt cast a rod out till sunday afternoon, had two fish within an hour then it went quiet for a few days. We found that moving around the lake and resting certain swims helped. All the bites would come within half an hour of getting a rig out and the window for catching was normally only for a couple of hours a day. I assumed that swims 1 and 2 would present the best opportunity but it was actually swim 5 that accounted for the majority of the fish.

General comments:
Overall a tough week but the rewards on offer are amazing, average weight is so high and the fish seem to be growing on again with the removal of the Chats.
The cold weather early in our week seemed to stop the lake in its tracks with fish hanging in mid water/mid depth but unable to tempt with zigs.
Great fishing by Joel to extract 6 fish!

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Mehdi's particle and Live System fished tight to the far margin in the day and a rod length or two off the far margin at night.

Plastic enterprise boilies fished on pop up rigs accounted for 95% of the bites.

We fed boilies little and often throughout the week. The majority of the bites came whilst we were baiting up "ringing the dinner bell".

As a group we got through 125kg boilie and 50kg of particle

The Poison Chat didn't cause us any issues throughout the entire week. If you go prepared with resetting rigs and plastic baits and bait based on how active/inactive they are you wont have any issues with them.

Were the facilities what you expected?
The facilities are everything you could wish for on a drive and survive type holiday. Hot shower, functioning toilet and a large fringe and freezer.
Were you happy with them?
Very happy indeed.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
We have been to Old Oaks numerous times over the years. The venue is going from strength to strength under the management of Mehdi and the average weights are incredible.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes, have done many times.

General comments:
You will not meet a nicer fishery owner than Mehdi. He is always on hand to help and will always go out of his way to ensure that you have a great week.

Mehdi was in constant contact throughout the week, willing us on to break some of his long standing fishery records. His enthusiasm and genuine joy when we smashed every record for the lake was brilliant.

As a group we have been to lots of french venues over the years, none of which come anywhere near Old Oaks. Year on year we find ourselves saying "I wish we were at Oaks right now"

Name of customer:
Lee Nixon
Number of anglers:
2
Details of your catches:
20 fish between us, 3 x 50s, loads of upper 40s and 30s we had fish from every peg.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Fished pop ups as we was aware of the chat from a previous trip but to be fair only had 4 chat between us we even stopped wrapping them in the end as we wasn’t getting bothered by them. Just keep them fruity and you should be fine, be prepared to keep moving round the lake. Bites come fast but also die off very quick, if you're in the right spots rods will rip off straight away literally b4 u even have time to put them down.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Everything you need.
Were you happy with them?
Yes.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
100%, great stamp of fish and a stunning lake.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
