Etang Le Grand Pierre

Carpworld - - MAINLINE -

Trevor Childs ven­tured back to Le Grand Pierre af­ter the trip with Shaun Har­ri­son – the ‘Three Lakes in Five Days’ fea­ture which ap­peared in Carp­world 336. Al­though all the party felt they didn’t catch as well as they might have done, and dis­cussed re­turn­ing, it was Trev who was the first to ac­tu­ally get him­self back, this time ac­com­pa­nied by his bet­ter half, Lynn. Trevor had con­vinced her that it was the per­fect place for a bit of re­lax­ation! In the event Lynn be­came an al­most full-time pho­tog­ra­pher and ac­tu­ally ended up land­ing a rather large fish her­self, that many hard­ened carp an­glers would have loved to have caught. It didn’t take long for the first fish to find Trev’s baited area. It is al­ways nice to get off the mark early and he cer­tainly did that and was soon into a rhythm – land­ing fish, hook­bait out, quickly fol­lowed by an­other 10 or so Spombs of bait, which was mostly boilie. Slowly but con­tin­u­ously his catch de­vel­oped. By Tues­day evening it was noted that the carp were start­ing to show far more to­ward the op­po­site side of the pit, so, at first light on Wed­nes­day, Trevor was drag­ging Lynn out of bed for a move. With a week’s worth of gear to pack, move and set back up, they would have been ready for a rest whilst look­ing back to­ward where they had just va­cated. But, the carp were to give them lit­tle peace and very soon the ac­tion started again and the carp sim­ply kept on com­ing. Apart from a rogue koi which is be­lieved to be the only one in the fish­ery, all the rest of Trev’s 31 fish weighed over 35lb, with the jewel in the crown weigh­ing in at 76lb 4oz – a stun­ning com­mon. Lynn’s PB weighed in at a very cred­able 52lb 7oz.
