An Update

After a winter of trapping poisson chat, at the beginning of this month I changed the bait in the traps and despite waiting 2 weeks, I caught only 8kg of poissons chats (first time there were 4 traps empty) That indicates that there's not much left now.

The consequences should be: more food for the carp, better growth, less hassle for anglers and less carp stress. 

All swims has been repaired, track repaired with gravel, freezer defrozen and clean. Gonna cut the branches all around now.

An Update

The new poissons chat traps are very effective. Since 1.5 month, I caught exactly 134kg which is almost 300lb! This weight was caught with only 5 traps.

The second good news is most of the poissons chat caught are the big ones so this means far less breeders. Since that success, we bought another 10 traps last week, so now there are 15 traps in Old Oaks, for hopefully 3 times more poisson chat caught.

This should really make a difference for the 2019 season onwards.

An Update

Mehdi is aware of the poisson chat having been particularly prolific this season - a long hot season has meant perfect conditions for them to thrive. He intends to regulate them by trapping, having invested in a further 5 poisson chat traps which are designed to trap up to 10kg per trap per day.  He will also be adding some predators to help naturally balance the numbers.

The facilities have already seen upgrades this season. See below for photos taken this week.

*Update as of 5th November 2018* The traps are now installed and 5kg of poisson chat have been removed. They are proving very effective and will no doubt help when the poisson chat are more prolific in the summer months.

A Reminder Regarding Poisson Chat

As with previous years, there are poisson chat in the lake this summer, so we want to remind you to consider this when deciding on your tactics. Many anglers have few issues if using pop-up method, plastic or wrapped baits. When I can, I net the balls but I don't use traps during the fishing season to avoid disturbing anglers.

2nd September Week

Terrific week on both lake last week! Weather is now cool, grey and windy so the fish are active.

Between 2-9th September there were 43 fish out of Old Oaks including the Long Common at 68lb and the second 60lber is the Fox common at 64lb! Maximum ever weight.

9 fifties, 2 sixties and 18 forties!!!! Totally ridiculous, record average 47lb!
