General comments:
A great venue, the average size of fish in this lake is unbelievable! Mehdi has worked all through the winter to trap the poisson chat and has removed over 350kgs so far! The pegs have been barked out and the facilities are all working well. Great to see the fox common again 10 years after we last caught it!

Wouldnt want to spend our money in france anywhere else. Excellent location, 2hours from caen, 5 mins from super market and 20 mins from le mans 24hr track but you wouldnt know it as the lake is in total countryside away from any busy roads and surrounded by trees.

Medhi was literally the nicest person! After 4 days on Laroussi and nothing on the bank or really showing (to be expected beginning of january) Medhi kindly allowed me and my dad to move over to old oaks for the last few days..

On the first night i landed a 37lb 08oz and 38lb 02oz and my dad had two at 39lb on the nose . Second night i had the 52lb 04oz and the last night i had a 37lb. Once again thankyou very much Mehdi for allowing us to move, really did make the trip!

Holiday date:
Sat 10th Nov to Sat 17th Nov 2018
Name of customer:
Nicolas Delcolle
Number of anglers:
4
Details of your catches:
26 fish in total with 7 fifties including the fox common with a average of 43ib and collective weight of 1120lb.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Various tactics from each anglers included baiting heavy and tight to zonal spread and small traps seem to work very well, the fish were in the mid columns most of time in there safety zone and not been tempted by zigs, as the previous trip seen peg 2 dominated this wasn’t the case as the fish were spread out and at times right under your rod tips!!!
The baits we used were cell, live system, nutcracker and Manila, snowman to singles and fake corn accounted for all captures.

*poisson chat * Obviously from previous feedback we were concerned and catered for eventuality of combating the problem, we knew water temps had dropped so there activity would be minimal, but I must say is that we hardly had any problems with them at all!!!! The poisson chat have always be present in old oaks for a number of years and lengthy summers have made them thrive but medhi has started to reduce them massively in setting traps in each pegs with fish meal paste which he empties regular with great results which in turn will reduce them considerably not causing the angler problem in return thus not affecting fish weights and the addition of predator will contain the problem!!! All fish caught were all in tip top condition!

Were the facilities what you expected?
All as expected and everything you need
Were you happy with them?
Again overall very happy with the facilities, it’s a drive and survive
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Definitely would recommend this venue to anyone, it has and does what it says on the tin and more, a few teething problems this term but well on the way to being cured
Would you recommend our services to a friend?

Richard Clarke
Number of anglers:
3
Details of your catches:
We had 21 fish between the biggest being the 55.5lb fox common.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
We used a variety of methods to try to avoid the dreaded poisson chat. Plastic baits were best but real boiles caught the bigger fish if they stayed on long enough.

Number of anglers:

Details of your catches:
51 fish between 4 anglers - the most caught in a week since the lake opened 13 years ago.
50's x 3 - up to 52lb 8oz - this fish was caught 2 nights in a row by the same angler - Me
40's x 18
30's x 20
20's x 3
Doubles x 4
Grass x 3
Bream and chat

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Fishing for a bite at a time, hook baits wrapped or used plastic baits. over hemp, sweetcorn, party blend, pellet, boillie.
No point baiting heavy as chats were on the bait as soon as it was dropped, loads of liners.
A lot of the bites were instance, as we believe the carp had no choice but to eat there and then or they would go hungry as chat's would clear the bait. We did have bites 4, 5, 12 hours after putting baits out, but we believe by this time we were fishing single hook baits


Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, been before
