Sapphire

SapphireLocation: Pays de la Loire region, Mayenne

Website: http://www.anglinglines.com/docs/ourvenues/lakes/sapphire/index.phpDescription: Sapphire is set to become the ‘Jewel in the Crown’ of Michel & Laurent Bigot’s carp venues (Margot, Morgane, Commons and Lords being the others). The Bigots are one of the top fish farming companies in France, so you can always be assured of plenty of top quality fish when you book one of their waters.

This venue has the best of both worlds. Great bivvy fishing with good facilities on hand... or pure luxury if you wish to book the large lodge for that family holiday, or just to offer more comfort for large groups.

The lodge has 6 bedrooms (all with bathrooms or ensuites) and would happily accommodate large parties who are after serious fishing alongside high standard accommodation.

There’s plenty to do locally for non anglers and plenty of space for children to explore and play without disturbing the anglers. The lake stretches out in a lovely valley and whilst tranquillity reigns on the lake, shops and restaurants are only a few minutes away.

Oakview Lake
Oakview Lake

 

Location: Pays de la Loire, Sarthe

Website: www.anglingfrance.com

Description: A truly outstanding venue for the family angler. That’s not just our opinion, it’s what our customers keep telling us – again and again. Whether you are an experienced angler just looking for a relaxed quality fishing holiday with the family, or whether you are a group of friends who fancy getting started on some bigger carp, Oakview caters for both. Tucked away in the country lanes of the beautiful Mayenne countryside, the two and a half acre lake with its luxury lakeside lodge is two and a half hours from Caen and five hours from Calais.

At the 2 lodge swims, anglers can enjoy a drink or a meal together on the lodge terrace without even having to reel-in. Oakview’s flat curving banks also make it comfortable for 4 anglers to tuck themselves out of sight and still have access to the island, margins and plenty of open water.

The accommodation often attracts family anglers, so the lake doesn’t tend to suffer from continuous pressure fishing. The 2009 season saw great catch reports from experienced anglers and countless PBs from those newer to the French fishing experience

Lake: The Lake was completely drained and de-silted in November 2007 and the carp were introduced in stages throughout 2008. It’s roughly pear-shaped with a central island in its bulge, meaning that 100% of the water is fishable and 4 anglers will all have attractive swims.The banks are grassed, flat and wide and mature trees surround the whole complex, making it a haven for wild animals and birds amongst the surrounding farmland.

The swims are located near each corner of the lake and each of the 4 main swims has a sister swim on its adjacent bank. So every angler can switch banks at any time to take advantage of changing wind and conditions. In the 2 home swims you can enjoy a drink or a meal on the lodge terrace without even having to reel in!

The lake bottom is mainly clay. There are deeper areas at both ends of the lake and a deeper trench running the length of the lake - so there’s plenty of underwater ridges and features to fish to. The depth range is between 4 and 7 feet and although the water level normally drops a foot over the summer months, there is very little silt, so there aren’t any shallow no-go areas.

Stock:  Average size of carp stocked in November 2008 was 20lb 4oz. Average catch in 2009 was 25lb and the catch reports saw plenty of 30s on the bank. The 2009 lake record was 39lb 8oz and the most fish out by single anglers in a week were 37 and 21. Nuisance fish (small carp) were removed in July 2009.{rokcomments}

A maximum of 4 anglers can fish the lake but John prefers 3 as that gives you options to move around a little.

You reach the property down a long track and it’s totally enclosed by other fields and woods, not over looked at all – the feeling of exclusion & tranquillity is palpable.

Les Genets
Les Genets

 

Location: Pays de la Loire, Mayenne

Website: www.anglinglines.com/docs/ourvenues/lakes/genets/index.php

Description:  Genêts is situated in the idyllic, peaceful countryside of the Pays de la Loire region, near Mayenne. Although easy to find with the directions supplied it is set well away from busy main roads - the only neighbours you'll be likely to see are cows grazing in the nearby fields - making this an ideal setting for a quiet week of fishing away from it all.

The Lake: This is a 40 year old man made lake of approximately 5.5 acres, fed by a natural spring, with a silt over clay bottom. The owners have retained its natural look with trees and bushes overhanging the water, giving shade and shelter to both anglers and fish. There are 9 single swims & 1 double for 5 anglers maximum to choose from, so there's plenty of room to move around if you wish. All the swims are on one side of the lake and are well drained with good cover and plenty of space for large bivvies. The bank you fish to is mostly tree and bush lined and there are lily pads at one end of the lake.

Owners Larry, Steve & Heather live on-site so there is always someone available should you need any help or advice. The property is securely fenced in and there is a car parking area. Larry & Steve can help you transport your tackle to your swim if you wish.

Facilities: There is a comfortable lodge overlooking the lake where breakfast and evening meals are served. The food package includes a full cooked English breakfast with cereals, toast and as much tea and coffee as you can drink... or a breakfast baguette delivered to your swim, and a two-course evening meal... main course and sweet. We're told nobody has ever left hungry, so be prepared to put on a bit of weight!!

Breakfast & evening meals are served in the lodge… or, weather permitting, at the seating area overlooking the lake. For those hardy fishermen who don't want to reel in they are more than happy to serve your evening meals at the gazebo situated close to your swims{rokcomments}

Old Oaks
Old Oaks

Location: Pays de la Loire, SartheWebsite Address: www.anglinglines.com/docs/ourvenues/lakes/oldoaksDescription: Old Oaks is a 34 year old virgin gravel pit of around 5 acres, situated just opposite Laroussi, around 3 hours from Caen. It had never been fished before 2006, being left wild and undisturbed since it was dug. A delightfully pretty little water it will comfortably accommodate 5 anglers and will accept single bookings... or you can book it exclusively just for your party.

Fishing is from one bank and is certainly exciting with a host of features including, plateaus, weed beds, gullies and overhanging vegetation that just scream ‘carp’. Vehicle access is possible along all of the fishing bank.

In the past Poisson Chat have been a nuisance in the summer months (mainly June & July) but they were hardly present at all in the 2009 season. Just go prepared in case they do make an appearance

Stock: The Lake does hold a significant number of original fish. These carp are mostly very dark mirrors, averaging around 25lb in weight, as well as a few smaller commons.

Additional fish were added in November 2005. This was followed by more stockings in early 2006. Each time only top quality fish were introduced - all handpicked by Mehdi. As the catch reports show the stock levels are very good - there's certainly no shortage of fish.

Take a look at the catch returns and you’ll see that Old Oaks delivers a lot of 30’s... and we know of at least 4 different forties; a 43lb mirror , 40lb 6oz mirror , 42lb mirror and an immaculate 41lb common.

Plastic corn above a bed of hemp and partiblend has proved to be a very effective method and a baitboat gives you a great advantage.

Lake: 12 acres in size, Margot has 8 pegs for a maximum of 8 anglers It’s a relatively shallow lake ( 2 to 8 feet ) with a clay/fine silt bottom.

Stock: Margot is owned by one of France’s most respected fish farmers, Michel Bigot... so as you can imagine the carp stocks are awesome. Put quite simply he has readily available what most lakes just cannot get their hands on – an almost limitless supply of big carp.

The current stock is over 400 carp up to 66lb. At least 100 fish are over the 30lb barrier and around 30 over 40lb. The current record is an awesome common carp that weighs in at 66lb. The Koi carp go to 36lb and the grass carp to 45lb+. The current sturgeon record is 67lb.

In total 70 large carp to 49lb and four Koi were introduced to this prolific venue. The vast majority of the carp were in the high 20’s to low 30’s with the jewel in the crown being a magnificent 49lb common, what a superb fish!! So now there are two very large commons in this famous lake including the lake record of 66lb. Quite a target to go for!

Laroussi
Laroussi

Website Address: www.anglinglines.com/docs/ourvenues/lakes/laroussi/index.php

Description: In 2005 Laroussi burst onto the big fish scene with a bang...the catches were simply stunning. For example, over seven days in April 2005 six different 50lb+ fish were caught - exceptional fishing which made headlines in most of the Carp Press. Well 2006, 2007 & 2008 was no different and the fantastic catch reports kept rolling in.

The lake is a 34 year old virgin gravel pit set in the heart of the beautiful Pays de la Loire countryside. It lies close to Le Mans, famous for the legendary 24 hour motor racing circuit, and is within 3 hour’s drive from the ferry at Caen.

Lake: Laroussi is a mature, natural looking lake of around 15 acres with many interesting features including plateaus, overhanging trees, lily pads, shallows and gullies up to 5m deep.

All the swims are easily accessible and comfortable. The lake is fenced and tree lined making it totally private - it has been left as natural as possible giving a real feel of seclusion.

Stock: Laroussi was not open to the public in the first 33 years it existed, giving the original stock fish plenty of time to mature - it now offers exceptional big carp fishing. Most of the carp are between 30lb and 40lb, with more than 30 different forties, 13 different fifties, 3 sixties of 61lb, 64lb, 65lb and a huge 75lb 2oz, the current lake record.{rokcomments}

Commons Lake
Commons Lake

 

Location: Situated in the Mayenne region, near Laval, in the lush agricultural countryside of rural north western France, it is about 2.5 hours from the ferry port of Caen

Website: http://www.bigotlakes.co.uk/commons

Description:  He’s replicated Morganes as closely as possible – a lake you book exclusively for up to 6 anglers, complete with mobile home accommodation and stuffed full of large, pristine carp. Morganes is virtually booked out 12 months in advance so we had no reason to suspect that Commons would not be the same... and so it’s proved.

Lake: Around 3 acres in size the lake is roughly square in shape. Overall depth is fairly shallow with an average of 1.5m to the left, shallowing up to around 1m on the right hand side. The lake bed while silty is fairly firm and clear. There are no snags or weed beds, but the far and right hand margins have over hanging trees that act as good holding areas for the carp. Access is possible to the mobile home by car and on foot all around the venue. The right hand side is flanked by fields and fishing is not possible from this bank.

Stock: Like its sister lakes, Morganes & Margot, Commons Lake is owned by one of France’s largest fish farmers, Michel Bigot, so the fish stocks are excellent. As its names suggests, the stock consist of 80% common carp and these include several 40lb+ specimens – a relative rarity in most lakes. The majority of the carp are twenties and thirties and there are a number of 40lb+ mirrors too. Catches of 60+ fish in the week are common... and 100+ not unknown!

Other species include around 15 catfish to nearly 60lb, several of which are the rare Mandarin variety. There’s also a large diamond backed sturgeon of around 55lb. In total the stock numbers over 120 fish, ensuring excellent action as well as the possibility of banking a few superb specimens.

Facilities:  When you book this lake you get full use of the mobile home which sits right at the water’s edge. It has a fully fitted kitchen (with fridge freezer, cooker and oven), shower and toilet with hot water. There’s one double bedroom and one bedroom suitable for children with two bunk style beds. The living room sofas also double as single beds for two people. The living area has both UK and French wall sockets installed. This is basic accommodation – if you take partners and they’re looking for a bit of luxury they would be disappointed – but as a shelter and cooking station for anglers it’s perfect!

Outside the mobile home is decking and a shelter with garden furniture that provides a perfect social areas while fishing the near bank.{rokcomments}
