A winter weekend carpfishing on Domaine des Iles with Bas de Vries & Patrick Krekt!

On Friday the 11th of January we arrived at Domaine des Iles - Main Lake for a 3 day trip, after a warm welcome of the owner Bernard and some tips of where to fish we started our session. At about 15:00 all the rigs lay were we wanted them. The water temperature was 6,9°C and at about 21:45 we landed our first fish at 16,2 kg, a beautiful mirror... Then at 00:40 we had another take with a mirror at 18,5 kg, a stunning long mirror (a PB for my mate)!
There was a wind coming from the west that made the fish still want to feed, we knew a cold weather front was coming so we hoped for a few fish before the wind would change into a cold northern wind. At 07:50 Saturday morning we had another mirror carp at around 9kg and in the middle of the day we had another take that resulted in a mirror carp of 18,5 kg. The hopes where now really high of landing a 20kg fish because we had already 3 good fish within 24 hours of fishing.
Then it started to rain a bit and the wind changed in to a cold northern wind and the watertemperture dropped to 6°C, but at 23:00 we had another take of a mirror carp at 17 kg, then at 4:15 we had another take but unfortunately we had a hookpull within a few seconds… but that's fishing!
Now the water temperature dropped to 5,4°C so the hopes where not really high anymore, but still we had a fish around 00:30: another mirror carp at 12,5 kg. It started to snow and Mister Winter turned up and all turned white! Everything went quiet but we were happy with 6 fish, because it's still winter fishing.
At around 12:00 we stopped fishing and Bernard gave us a friendly wave and we started our way home with two smiling faces...We will be back at Domaine des Iles!
