Dynamite Baits Testteam goes wild at Etang de la Livardière!

Every now and than we can welcome well known anglers to our venues, whom you see in the magazines on a regular base. Among them Eddy Sterckx and Bart van der Hurk of ProLine are some very welcome guests of The Great Lake and Alijn Danau and Tim Paisley had once fished Domaine de Boux...
Field testers of Dynamite Baits (and also Strategy) are frequently at our venues, Pieter van de Werfhorst had fished Sunset Lake and Saron Debets had fished a couple of times at Etang de la Livardière with some great results. Especially for the readers of Carpnews, Pieter van de Werfhorst has written a small article about his experiences at the lake!

Etang de la Livardière late October 2010

Our trip to France in autumn started with a 3 day blank at a public water. This was a very shallow 500 acre big lake. Due to a couple of nights with frost the temperature of the water was dropped under 10°C. As if it was a disaster we were even removed by the garde de pêche (French angle inspection) because we were fishing in the night outside of the nightfishing area's. This didn't look good and we decided to visit another water. We hadn't had no fun here anymore!
After a short phone call with Bas van Klaveren from The Carp Specialist we were able to make some decisions. Bas offers to fish the rest of our trip at Etang de la Livardière. This has to be a very beautiful paylake. The water is actually closed for anglers due to the hunting season, but for us they made an exception. This means we are the only anglers at the lake, Cool!
The temperature of the water at Etang de la Livardière is around the 10°C too. We know there is a lot of fish in the lake and we come up with the following idea. We will make a mix of 3 different sizes Dynamite Baits Red Fish boilies (15mm, 20mm & 25mm). Half of it we will crumble. We pour half a bottle of The Source Liquid over this mix. With this we will start up our spots and we bait up each rod with approximately 1 kg of this mix. Our hookbait is one half 20mm boilie, sort of a slice. We have soaked these hookbaits for days in The Source Liquid.
We manage to catch fish within a couple of hours already. The fish is totally focused on feeding on this food and every night we catch several fish. During the day we fish other spots instantly, this on one hand to keep the peace on the baited spots and on the other hand to fish active and to produce more bites by stalking. This tactic is unheard and we catch several nice fish every day. Saron and Pieter manage to catch 25 carp in 4 days. The biggest is an astonishing 39lb. And all of this while the water temperature is only 10°C. Our trip ended up being a great succes after all!
