Ville­don opens in style

Carpworld - - TOPCATS -

The new sea­son got un­der­way at the im­pres­sive Lac de Ville­don and it’s fair to say that things started with a bang with lit­er­ally stacks of good fish com­ing out. Ev­ery swim on the venue has pro­duced fish and the great news is that the weights are re­ally on the up. Over the last cou­ple of years Ville­don has im­ple­mented a boilie and pel­let only rule on the lake and this has seen a marked in­crease – not only in the size, but also the con­di­tion of the fish. Pre­vi­ously other baits were al­lowed, in part to com­bat the pois­son chat that were start­ing to take a hold in the lake. But an ex­ten­sive drain­ing and net­ting pro­gram had the de­sired ef­fect and the vast ma­jor­ity of small cat­fish were re­moved, leav­ing all of the bait at the dis­posal of the carp – and what a dif­fer­ence it has made. Five fish over 60lb were re­ported in quick suc­ces­sion from dif­fer­ent swims around the 100-acre lake with sev­eral more over 40lb and 50lb. It looks like it’s go­ing to be a great year at the Dutch-owned lake in France and, of course, we will bring you all the news as it hap­pens.
