Es­tate Lake ses­sion

Carpworld - - OVERSEAS FISHERY FOCUS -

Steve and Joan Briggs made the short 3.5 hour drive from Calais to Nor­mandy for their first ex­pe­ri­ence of the beau­ti­ful Es­tate Lake. The sea­son had only opened a week prior to their ar­rival and the news wasn’t great – just one carp and one stur­geon had been landed. Steve was still con­fi­dent that things would turn out okay and af­ter a look around the venue he found what he was look­ing for when he spot­ted sev­eral fish grouped up in the shal­lows. Steve re­ported: “As soon as I came to the stream in­let I dis­turbed sev­eral carp and I knew that I had found what I was look­ing for. Sure enough it wasn’t long be­fore I started catch­ing and it was quite clear that most of the ac­tion was go­ing to come from that one area. That’s ex­actly how it panned out. I ended up with 17 fish landed and four lost, and all but two of the fish came from the in­let. I was us­ing Nash­bait Scopex Squid and tiger nut hook­baits over a mix­ture of crum­bled boilies, hemp, mag­gots, maize and tiger nuts. I was re­ally im­pressed by the venue, which is ab­so­lutely stun­ning, and the owner, Julie, is a real star! Although the weather was all over the place the ac­tion came steadily through­out the week at all dif­fer­ent times. We were there also with Carl and Alex from Nash to make a film that will be re­leased at a later date.”
