As I left blighty the weather had changed and temperatures dropped as I drove south into Frances. Couple of takes, but temperature dropped to -1 during the day and -4 at night. I knew it as going to be very tough.

After the Christmas Eve party without sleeping we immediately left for Brigueuil in the promised land for carp fishing for a trip of +-750km for a 5 day winter session at swim 12 with the fisherman's cottage. Arrived there around 9.30 am i was exhausted and I didn't put the fishing rods in on Christmas Day but got some sleep. However , once you see a carp in lake , you naturally want to fish . Fortunately changed my mind and then decided to throw in 2 rods and to feed some boilies for the first day. Since my wife and I have been coming there for several years (except last year because of corona), I already know a bit where the carps usually stay in the winter period, so there was no doubt where I would put the 2 fishing rods that first day. After 10 minutes , and while rigging the 2nd rod , I already got a take . Immediately hit and a very nice long linear carp 38lb. Ok , so that was a very good start ! A few hours later I got a slow take, once the rod was in my hand and after setting the hook I immediately felt the heavy slow pulling work and that this could be a very good one. And indeed, after a fairly long heavy but not heavy fight, one of the top 3 fish is on the unhooking mat at a weight of 62lb called “Twin Scale”. Just after the photo session and putting this whopper back, the 2nd bite alarm screams and I also land a beautiful mirror of 41lb. We'll keep it for that day because both are totally nuts and had something to celebrate/drink at this start with such weights, so time for a drink and about 30 oysters. The following days I regularly get bites, especially between noon and 10 p.m. with some nice weights, a mirror of 43, a leather of 47lb .... The last day I caught 2 more carp, one at the nice weight of 54lb called “Parrott” and as a bonus I also get the first fish of the session back, that row carp of 38lb In total I get 15 bites and land 12 fish with some big specimens. All fish were caught on Eddy S.'s Bonbon Rouge boilies and from the deeper part of the lake. We are of course already looking forward to the next winter session there between Christmas and New Year 2022 . Highly recommended High Mill Lake and very friendly English owners Tracey and Andy .
