You will have no argument from me that my blogging, both written and video has been shocking so far this season! Excuses excuses, but we have been mega busy; with things going from strength to strength here. I will make a real effort to make them more regular. In the meantime here are a few catch shots from recent weeks. #coronvibe #catchreportsbigcarp #biglakes #bigcarprigs #multirigs #mainlinebaits #frenchcarpholidays #carpfishingcompetition #frenchcarpfishing #scalycarprol
As part of the annual winter chores, adding to and most importantly complimenting the existing stock is an important part of the cycle, as it lake nettings, improvements, tree work, de silting, digging; the list goes on and on. Part of the enjoyment for me is to source and pick a few new fish from different farms to introduce new strains, shapes and scale patterns into the lake, they won't always be huge, but I will have picked them for theor looks and young age meaning they
With pressure through the roof and freezing cold nghts the lads did really well last week to tempt a couple of real Lac Du Coron stunners. What was most interesting to me was the the long male called 'moonscale' has 100% not been caught before and Matts 28, although it looks like a fish I have seen before has also not been caught before that I know of fish both were up in weight and both in mint condition. The lads had a huge ammount of fish crashing in the area, but apart fr
After weeks and weeks of spawning and seriously high tempretures it was great to see some of the big girls starting to come out and at good weights too. Here are a few photos of Richard who is fishing Lotties Swim with a fish known as Split Tail. She is 6 lbs up on her stocking weight, It looks like we will have a fair few big 40's low 50's this winter. #coronvibe #Publicwaters #kooswalters #buildingswims #nashbaits #mainlinebaits #thekey #carpfarm #carpfishingcompetition #fr
Fishing over the last few weeks has been hard at Lac du Coron and all over the country to be honest. After an incredibly wet start to the year and a far below average tempreture things have literally turned on their head and as I sit here typing at 7am it is already 24 degrees and set to be 36+ today. The fish have obviously found this hard to handle, especially with spawning which has basically been going on for a few days a week for 3 months, I am really looking forward to
I will soon be doing a couple of nights myself where I will of course try and put a little film together. In the meantime as I have been working down there this week I have been trying to capture a few little snippets for the films cutaways, thought you may like to see this clip (0; #coronvibe Save #anglersmail #anglersmailmagazine #stickybaits #TheSource #baitworks #coronvibe #nightfishing #frenchcarpfishing #carpbait #spawning #carpinfrance #carpfishingcompetition #carpfarm
An awful lot has happened in the last 18 months, in fact it has all been a bit of a whirlwind and I am only just getting my head around it al now. It was a real honour to be asked by Tim Knight at the Anglers Mail to put a few words on paper about Sharons and I move to France, the process, the work behind it etc etc, so I did just that and a few weeks ago the story came out in the magazine. If you didnt get a chance to pick up and Anglers Mail and would like to have a read, t
In this short video I take a look at my approach. How I would choose to tackle Lac du Coron taking into account what I have learnt observng our anglers and the tips and tricks I picked up fishing over the winter.
I look at rigs, hookbaits and baiting aproaches.

Well what a brilliant 1st few weeks we have had over at Lac Du Coron. After months of back breaking work we eventually opened our gates at the end of April, since then we have had over 20 anglers, 1 50 pounder, 13 different 40's, loads and lods of 30's and plenty of 20's and by my calculations there are still 25 fish or more that haven't even been caught yet. As I write this we have a moment of calm, 5 anglers have just left and for the 1st time in 7 weeks I locked the gates
