Etang de Brigueuil down near Limoges in France is open allyear-round but things have been quiet on the fish front for a while now. However, just recently the carp appear to have woken up. Most notably a new PB 57lb mirror for Chris that he had from Swim 2 along with another cracker of 53lb and a further fish of 30lb. He tempted those on a mixture of tiger nuts and Baitworks Monster Red boilies all at a distance of about 60 yards. To add to the story so far, Rich was back on swim 11 this time with son Paul, who was making his first visit to the venue. Paul managed to beat his PB of 32lb with his second fish that weighed in at 35lb. Then he made doubly sure with the next fish, a cracking 53lb 12oz common. He followed those up with two over 40lb to 47lb 14oz. Rich also did well with three fish over 45lb to 49lb, totalling 13 fish between them all on tiger nuts. Over on swims 7 and 8 Michel and Ton fished with Mainline Cell and finished on 16 fish, ten over 30lb, three over 40lb and a 54lb common. The weather conditions were poor at best, so respect to everyone. In all, 40 fish were caught in that one period, including 17 over 30lb, three lower 40s, 14 over 45lb including four over 50lb.
