Notaires, a 3 acre lake with farmhouse accommodation, has always been fairly prolific and last month was no different with carp even being caught using cane rods and worms! Here’s the latest catch report;
Holiday date: Sat 17th May to Sat 24th May 2014
Name of customer: Paul Steele

Salv 32 Carp – Total weight 850lb (1 x 40’s – 40lb7oz, 12 x 30’s, 15 x 20’s, 4 x doubles). Brian – mainly coarse fishing 10 Carp & nets full of Roach & Rudd to just short of 1lb.
Your best tactics/bait/rigs: To be honest we found the fish not to be too fussy when it came to bait & rigs. Mainline Cell & Dynamite Spicy Tuna both worked well.

General comments: Can’t believe that this venue isn’t booked solid. We had been before and were bringing a friend back having bigged the place up so expectations were high but boy did the lake deliver! I had 1000lb of Carp on the bank myself…by Tuesday night….FISHING DAYS ONLY!!! Couldn’t get 3 rods out in the first few days without getting a run and got snapped twice. Salv caught a thirty stalking the shallows with a worm on a cane rod and centre pin reel!
Chris & Steph are great hosts and with the swimming pool and many farm animals the place is ideal for families. We’ll be back!
