It has been quite a long time since I have managed a proper night on Lac Du Coron, before my night a month ago the last two opportunities I had both ended shortly after they began as the fish embarked on yet another carpy orgy. Last month I was kindly invited for a night with a group of 3 anglers on the lake and Mac and I did the night in The Channel That night flew by with fish showing all around me and I did manage 3 takes. 1 I dropped and the other two were little wildy co
There is a reason we call March/April and early May 'clubbing season' is pretty easy to understand with big carp from all over Europe on social media and in the magazines. As they wake up from their winter slumber it always takes them a month or so to be totally on ther guard. But after spawning in my exoeriance things always change after winter, banker baits, colours and methods often seem to become redundant and new baits and methods are called for, it always seems a tad tr
To give the lake and the fish a break I have decided to close Lac Du Coron between October 13-27th, this is in addition to the 7 weeks we are closed for rest weeks throughout the season. I will therefore extend the season to include the very productive weeks in November. November 3rd - 10th
November 10th - 17th
November 17th - 24th These 3 weeks are available for £500 lake exclusive (maximum 4 anglers) or £150 per angler non exclusive. To book or for more details then PM me
I am really pleased that the new fish have gone in nice and early this winter, it means they have a good few months to chill out, recharge and have a little feed before next seasons anglers arrive in late Feb. So this second stocking of the winter was made up of 5 crackers topped by a 47lbs mirror (above.) As well as that there were two new mid 30's a stunning low 30 and a torpedo of an upper 20 common. Here they are..... In addition to these new crackers we stocked another 9
Well as many of you know we are now half way through the 1st of our 2 week mid summer close down. We have celebrated our wedding anniversary with close friends and family and worked hard at the lake cutting trees, tweaking the aeration system, painting the terrace and feeding the fish. But today Sharon and I are on our own for the first time in 6 weeks. We miss all our friends and family, but it does mean 1 thing, it's fishing time! I managed to do a couple of hours yesterday
It's has been a busy time over the last few weeks with lots of cracking fish banked and just as many lost.
Take a look at the success our anglers have had. Few more to get, but these are a great start. #coronvibe #Frenchcarpfishingholidays #Frenchcarpfishing #bigcarp #Frenchcarp #catchreports #mirrorcarp #commoncarp #LacduCoron #Coronvibe
That's us done for a few weeks as we close down for a fortnight, see friends and celebrate our 1 year anniversary. Where does the time go!? It doesn't mean that the carp will go hungry though, far from it as I will be giving them an awful lot of bait over the next few weeks. Roughly 100kg a week of both Coron Specials, Maize, Lupins, Coron Pellet Mix and Activ8. Dad is hard at work tarting up the terrace too. Even I'm going to fish next week and take the opportunity to get lo
Many of you know that we have regular rest weeks throughout the season. Next week is one such week.
In addition to a really good feed up I am also pleased to announce we will be installing a new aeration system into Lac du Coron. The new underwater based system has a number of advantages over our fountain, most importantly from the anglers point of view it will be loads quiter! I will so be able to distribute the system over a wider area getting a better spread.
I haven't got all the photos from the lads but these are a good start. Fishing all over France has been difficult of late but theads did well to get amongst them. Crushed Mainline Activ8 mixed with Coron Specials, Coron Pellet mix and Coron particle mix. #LacduCoron #bigcarp #CarpfishinginFrance #Carpfishingholidays #mainlineBaits #Coronspecials #Coronpellet #Coronparticle
