Boux has had one of it’s best seasons yet so far! You only need to take a look at the feedback for this year to see that fifties are gracing the bank regularly. Here’s Andy Windmills catch report from May…
Holiday date: Sat 10th May to Sat 17th May 2014
Name of customer: Andy Windmill
Number of anglers: 2
Details of your catches: A slow week compared to 2013 mainly due to heavy cold rain and strong northerly winds causing the water temperature to drop 5F in three days.
However although we only had 13 fish the average weight was just under 40lbs and included a 54lb mirror and a 53lb common together with commons of 46lbs and 43lbs and mirrors 44lbs and 42lbs.
Your best tactics/bait/rigs: Fishing the 9 foot contour and being patient – chasing showing fish didn’t yield a single bite although this has worked in the past. Bait was amber strawberry and rosehip boilies fished on blow back rigs.
Were the facilities what you expected? Yes – two freezers, a fridge and microwave all in good working order and a nice hot shower.
Were you happy with them? Absolutely.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend? Yes
Would you recommend our services to a friend? Yes – the whole booking process was perfect and the staff are a pleasure to talk to.
General comments: Great venue with tranquil surroundings and hard fighting fish. Fairly long drive from Calais but well worth it. Phillippe is around if you need him but otherwise leaves you to enjoy your fishing.
