Spwaning over? Fish active! Bites coming and now were closed for 3 weeks! It has been tough over the last few weeks with the fish spawning no less than 8 times, the 1st spawning was in late April and they have been at it on and off until last week, the end of July! On top of that we had tempretures up to 49 degrees on the terrace last week, not great fishing conditions. Saying that this weeks group of Graeme, Wayne and Zak fished well and managed several fish throughout the w
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
The fish really started spawning late last night, so I grabbed the camera and whilst the guys enjoyed breakfast I took a wander. #carp #carpspawning #spawning #thekey #competition #commoncarp #carpfishing #kordatackle #carpfarm #carpinfrance #carpfishingcompetition #frenchcarp #carpbait #frenchcarpfishing #nightfishing #coronvibe #nashbaits #mainlinebaits #buildingswims #kooswalters #Publicwaters #mirrorcarp #biglakes #MonsterTigerNut #carpfishinginfrance #coronspecials #fren
It has been a funny few weeks, with loads of fish being caught, but different swims being the ones to produce, the key is still very simple though. If you fish accurately, keep everything quiet and pinned down and bait little and often then you will have a few. A combination of the particle mix, halved Coron Specials and a good lashing of the Coron pellet certainly seems to be the way forward, with over 60 fish coming out to these methods in the last 3 weeks with 4 different
Alex fishing the Left Hand Double landed a stunning new 40 yesterday at 45lbs and ounces and a new PB. Thats 7 or 8 new PB's in our first 5 weeks. Conditions so far this week have been testing to say the least with monsoon like rains hitting the area for the past 5 or 6 days. Dams and rivers in the area are bursting their banks and Lac Du Coron has faired no better with thousands of gallons of water crashing into the lake, even with the outflow pipes open we were overwhelmed
Last wee was a tough week. The fish are waiting to spawn and with the pressure going through the roof I new they were going to need to work hard for every bite, and that is exactly what they did. After tinering with rigs and bait colours all 3 guys got amongst a few fish with some real stunners amongst them and a PB for Jud too with this cracking mirror. I have tried to round up as many of their pictures as possible, have a look at some of the crackers they had. #fishinginfra
Well this week has certainly been a tough one. With the fish pre occupied on the incredible amount of naturals at the moment and with sex on the mind it has been slow. It took a few days for the 1st fish to be landed after a couple of lost fish and what a stunner it was. Ash in the Left Hand Double got the ball rolling with the gorgeous Baby Zip at a fraction over 27lbs, caught on a 35lbs Jel-E-Wyre Multi Rig and one of the Dynamite Baits Butyric-C Pop Ups that we sell on sit
