Andy Wilmott and Gary Reynolds had a catch of 29 carp at Old Oaks this month, 22 of which were over 30lb! Nice work guys. Read their feedback below…
Details of your catches: 29 carp for the week. 10 x 40’s 12x 30’s. Best 3 were 45, 46 and 49lb. Fish were still interested in spawning but came steadily through the week.
Your best tactics/bait/rigs: Fished to the far bank. Boilies over a bed of pellet/boilie. Most fish v tight in due to high water but some fish a rod length out from far bank.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend? Mehdi made us most welcome and was the perfect host. He introduced us to the water and the rules and then left us to it. We could speak to him during the week and kept up to date with our progress. If we had needed help he would have been more than happy to come over and give advice. First class.
General comments: Some of there swims are a bit boggy due to the high water level. We understand this is unusual but if it continues there will need to be some work to keep the swims drier. But overall no complaints. We have been to france for the last 5 years and this was the stand out week.
