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.

Stock: 400 carp to 60lb+{rokcomments}

Etang de la Malvoisine

Website: http://etangdelamalvoisine.fr/Description: The Etang de la Malvoisine is situated in a sleepy village in the heart of the Mayenne region, an easy drive from the channel ferry ports of Le Havre and Caen. The owners are French and we’ve been very impressed with the professional way they are setting their lake up. We’re confident that it’ll be a first class venue and it’s often the anglers who get on a new water early who have some cracking catches.

Etang de Janine
Etang de Janine

  

Location: Set in the beautiful Loir Valley, 3 hours from port.Website: https://www.facebook.com/Etang-de-Janine-203886779633269/info/?tab=overviewDescription: Set in the heart of the Loire valley, Etang de Janine is only 3 hours from port, the lake is a mature 60 year old tree lined 18 acre gravel pit that is bordered by other lakes, maize fields and nearby flows the petit loir river. France does not get any more picturesque than this, and has an abundance of wildlife which includes, wild boar, deer, lizards, herons, kingfishers, woodpeckers; in fact the list is endless with hatfuls of birds of prey, owls and miles and miles of farm land. The nearest city is 30 miles away so you don't even have light pollution, sit at night and look up at the stars, fantastic!The bank side is mowed regularly, beautiful little flowers planted, trees kept plush and as we find a snag in the lake it is removed. Some of the swims are natural, grass that goes down to the water’s edge, some are cut out and edged off with railway sleepers. Because we are down in the valley there is normally a breeze coming from somewhere, and if not there are enough trees to shelter under when things warm up. There is a locked gate and the lake is fenced off, you can park your car behind every swim, so no mile hike with your tackle! the only vehicles we get here are the tractors out in the fields. With no factories, smells or noises. Peace and tranquillity is permanently at hand.

Lake: We are now into our first year, we have had some wonderful fish out. Lake depths vary from a general 10ft all over with cuts that go to 13ft, shelves that come up to 7 ft, the end by the shower and toilet have just received a good planting of lilies, the corner stays around 3-5 foot until you get to forty feet out where it drops down to 13 ft then comes up on a bar, the other side goes to 10 ft. Plumbing with a rod is worthwhile, you do need to think a little about your fishing here, it's not a supermarket type lake.Roger, the previous owner of Lyngors has fished Janine, formerly Etang de Vouvray for 8 years, he told me "the first year I arrived I watch a common of around 40lb in the margins, this fish has had me return every year."At first, maize scored well but now boilies have come into their own, and looking at the fish's diets there is a change in the baiting policy for 2005. (see bait for details)There are four stone picnic tables that resemble a setting at Stonehenge! They are along the side of the lake and have been well received. There is no need to move from the water’s edge as we deliver breakfast and a home cooked meal, many a night we bring over some meat, salad and have a bbq, We supply you with clean water, bin bags, take all you rubbish away, There are clean hot water showers, toilets bankside, we charge you batteries/phone, boat, lights, we have freezer space for your frozen baits, but as we roll our own and they go into the lake regularly, we suggest you use these on a couple of rods.At present we have 3 boats available around the lake and have not had any problems with them, I will monitor the situation with them yearly, and then decide for 2006.Bait: NO NEED TO FILL YOU CAR WITH STINKY BAITS THAT WEIGH A TON AND TAKE UP ALL YOUR ROOM! Our home rolled baits are a quality food source for Carp, below is a list of ingredients used in their manufacture, showing how much thought, time, effort and expense we have taken to achieve the end product, we hand roll, hand boil and hand pack them. The Facilities: We have two large chest freezers so we can store your favourite baits, tell us what you need and we will bring it over with your next delivery of food. Daily we supply fresh water in clean containers for your tea - coffee etc. We recharge your batteries for you bait boats, torches, telephones and walkie talkies. In fact we have even jump started a car after the driver flattened his battery with a dvd player running to his bivvy!We often pick up the odd thing from the shops, like a case of beer, two bottles of wine and a toothbrush, so you can concentrate on relaxing! Lakeside there is four stone picnic tables and a couple of large wooden tables where you can sit and enjoy the very quiet countryside. We supply buckets for mixing bait. We also sell all the bait you will need. We remove rubbish daily, and supply bin bags. There is a clean hot shower and clean toilet lakeside.Booking through:  http://www.lesgravelles.com/les_gravelles_web_site_1_001_017.htm{rokcomments}

Etang du Vivier
Etang du Vivier

Website Address: www.redhotlakes.com

Description: Vivier is a privately owned, English run carp fishing holiday venue set amidst the beautiful Loir-et-Cher countryside of northern France, south west of Paris and is a 4.5 hrs drive from Calais or 3.5 from Le Harve. The lake is 15 acres of water sitting in 40 acres of quiet French woodland and fields and its surroundings are a real haven for wildlife so you can also expect to see buzzards, owls, herons and kingfishers during your visit. If you like getting away from it all Vivier is the perfect venue. Lake: Etang du Vivier is a rich, mature, estate type lake of 15 acres sitting in 40 acres of quiet woodland and fields. The water depths range from 1 metre at the shallow end and 2 metres down to the damn wall. There is a track around the whole lake so your gear can be dropped off behind your swims and then returned to the car park so no struggling around the lake with your mountain of gear. The lake bed is mainly sand, clay & fine silt and the water is heavily coloured due to the large head of carp continually rooting up the bottom looking for food. There are 7 single swims and 3 double swims all designed for anglers with plenty of room in each. All swims have their own uninterrupted areas of lake with visible features, margins and areas of shallow and deep water, we only allow a maximum of 6 anglers at any one time so there is always plenty of room for a move if you wish to try another area or fancy stalking one of the bays.There are a number of small grassy islands dotted around the lake which provide nice features to fish to and the marginal slopes and drop-offs are always worth a try. A couple of swims have purpose built wooden platforms where a rod pod is necessary. The fish patrol up and down the lake on the hunt for food all the time and can be seen rolling and jumping all over the lake on a regular basis and they get caught from all swims so expect plenty of action whatever swim you choose.The lake is extremely quiet and peaceful especially at night so all you will expect to hear are the owls hooting, the catfish slapping and your clutches screaming!

The carp fishing holidays are run on a drive and survive basis and the lake caters for groups of up to 6 angler’s maximum weekly so each angler will have 2.5 acres or more to themselves. The English owner Ian is at hand for advice and tips and there is a large mobile home with two bedrooms, sofas, showers, toilets, fridge, freezer & cooking facilities. There is a designated barbeque area outside with tables and chairs for eating alfresco. Should you wish to tear yourself away from the lake there are restaurants and a large supermarket nearby.

Domaine Des Iles
Domaine Des Iles

Location: In the heart of Picardie Northern France

Website: http://www.domaine-des-iles.com

Description: Take a drive into the heart of Picardie, Northern France, and experience the delights of Le Domain des iles. The 60 acres of water on this private estate plays host to about 1,000 specimen carp up to 66lbs, with almost one hundred in the 40 to 60lb bracket. The complex, which is located within the most gorgeous settings, consists of three lakes which originally where all connected to each other by channels where the carp could move from lake to lake, however to enhance the quality of the fishing the channels have been blocked off so that we can offer different styles of fishing.

The Main LAKE: The main lake is limited to 12 anglers and offers the very realistic chance of some huge fish. There is one main Lodge at the North east end of the lake which when booked includes the 4 swims at that corner of the lake. There are also 2 cabins situated next to each other where it is possible to fish from the cabins. The lake record of 66 pounds is to be found in this lake along with a lot of the other big fish. As an added bonus 152 catfish where stocked into this lake in Jan 2000 ranging from 3 pounds to 30 pounds, and as expected these have piled on the weight pretty rapidly due to the amount of small fish in the lake and are now between 20 and 60 pounds. There are now 6 new benches situated around the main lake with power socket, lights and fridge. There are also lights and power situated in the swims. The lake bottom is clear firm peat and there is no weed to hinder you. Most baits work on this lake but the carp company baits sold on site really go well.

The Back Lake and new lodge: We now have a brand new luxury lodge which offers superb facilities for maximum comfort whilst fishing, including satellite TV, fridge freezer, cooking hob, microwave, large shower, toilet, 3 bedrooms, plates, cutlery, cooking utensils. Why not book the lodge and back lake exclusively and fish your own private estate lake.

The fish range from doubles to 40 pounds with the odd bigger fish which go up to a verified 52 pound common carp.{rokcomments}

Lac du Charlou
Lac Du Charlou (Charlou Carping)

Location: Troyes

Website: http://www.charloucarping.co.uk

Description: Lac Du Charlou was purchased at the beginning of 2005 knowing that it had bag loads of potential to become a truly stunning location to bivvy up at and catch some very big carp. So, that is what we set out to do, and have now achieved our goal after a lot of hard graft, travelling, and also parting with a lot of hard earned money. The lake was named Lac Du Charlou after our two daughters, Charlotte and Louise, lucky beggars! Having been carp fishing to France enough times to know what, for me, makes a great week for a carper I wanted to put it in to practice by supplying this at a sensible cost, and enjoying it along the way by making it a week to remember for every visitor.

Lake: This stunning sixteen acre gravel pit has clear blue water, excellent for your photos, and is tree lined around the entire lake set within 24 acres of beautiful French woodland and countryside. There are some lovely views across the lake to lay and gaze at from your bivvy as the sun goes down in between catching your prize carp. Most anglers who have fished here also take home some lovely shots of the lake and its borders to remind themselves and show others just how nice it really is. The venue is nestled amongst some of the world’s most famous big carp waters on the border of the Orient Forest, home to Lac Orient and Lac Ammance, and I can guarantee you will be well impressed with the tranquillity of this one. The pegs, both double and single, are well spaced out for a maximum of ten anglers who will have ample room to fish with three or even four rods in certain pegs. There is plenty of space to bivvy up, with every peg being level and gravelled for drainage and comfort. Unhooking mats are supplied in each peg to lighten your load and care for our fish which are all in tip top condition.

Stock: The depths of the lake vary from 2 feet to 26 feet and the lake bed in mainly hard gravel with features to find and fish to. At present the lake holds over 350 carp, including mirrors, commons and leathers, ranging from 15lb to over 56b and growing fast!  The nearest main town for everything you could possibly want is only a 5 minute drive away and includes a tackle and gaming shop which believe it or not sells carping gear. For those who do like to get away from fishing for a while can relax in the town at one of the lovely bars next to the waterfall in the town centre. Personally I would prefer to be fishing but at times it can get very hot in the Champagne region, and do not forget that you are also on holiday lads, and we will try our utmost to make it one to remember for you.{rokcomments}

Brittany Mill Lakes

Brittany Mill Lakes Location : BrittanyWebsite : http://www.brittanymilllakes.com/Description: Since opening we have gone from strength to strength, the carp continue to show massive growth rates in the mild climate and rich waters of southern Brittany, could 2009 be the year for our first carp over 60lb? We hope so as a number of our 50lb + fish are still growing and their huge frames show great potential for reaching not just sixty pounds but record breaking sizes.

Mill Lake is our flagship lake and it is heaving with big carp! Many forties, up to 6 fifties and untold thirties and twenties, as well as cats to 116lbs and mervin the sturgeon currently 105lbs! Adorable is a nice description of this 12 acre lake set amidst traditional French countryside its old established woodland along one bank is full of wildlife while the grass bank on the opposite side is the area for sun lovers. A most pleasant place to fish, relax and enjoy nature, watch big carp cruise the surface in the heat of the summer sun occasionally throwing themselves out of the surface water crashing back in with a wallop that sounds more like a pig falling into the lake! Sitting right next to our main facilities and holding the largest of all our carp it really is so many anglers favourite lake.

Lake Cadouzan is set up for those that like loads of big carp action! Restocking began in 2005, when we introduced over 400 big carp mainly mid to upper twenties and thirties and 40's were stocked and they are growing fast!, biggest carp in 2009 52lbs followed by a nice 51lbs mirror and a good number of 40's and loads of upper 30's it keeps most anglers bite alarms singing! 17 acres of rich stream fed lake with a few Lilly beds in some of the best looking and most tranquil surroundings in France. A maximum of just 8 anglers (9 if a group booking) with 17 acres of water it guarantees you all the space you could ever want for your carp fishing adventure holiday. Our aim is to help you enjoy a fantastic and fun carp fishing holiday with great carp, great surroundings, great food, and to have a memorable time for all the right reasons. Huge stock now over 500 carp! Best catch of 2008 for one angler was 58 carp for a total weight of 1800lbs with 27 thirties to 39lbs. best so far for 2009 is 78 carp for angler Steve Major whilst his fishing buddy Leigh Wakeford had 63 carp for a total weight of 3135 lbs! Including loads of 30's, 2 x 40's and a 52lbs mirror.

Lake Lezay is a true big fish venue where the likelihood of catching a whacker carp of 30, 40 or 50lb exceeds the chances of catching 20s because of the ratio of big carp in the lake. This water is by no means a pushover though as some of the carp are wise old lumps and the anglers that put in the most effort reap the best rewards, some of the catches here have been phenomenal! like Ashley who banked 10 big forties during his week or Gary who had 6 forties and a fifty pound carp plus others. Its not just a big carp water though, it also has a number of large catfish (silure) to 110 lbs and one huge diamond back sturgeon (named Mervin) who now weighs over 105 lbs! This is a peaceful and tranquil venue one in which to relax and soak up the angling environment until the line over your buzzer suddenly jolts you in to action that is! All Lezay stocks have been returned to mill lake prior to 2008 season (see the video) lezay should reopen in 2012 {rokcomments}
