Weekly catch report of Badger’s Holt & Lac Serreire - week 23 - 30 August
Submitted by Bas van Klaveren on 01-09-2014
No wonder that Badger's Holt and Lac Serreire are two of our most popular venues for carp fishing in France: big carp, lovely surroundings, excellent accommodation and Simon & Corrinna as perfect hosts. Simon writes us the following this week:
"Badgers Holt was fished by Martin and Jeona from Germany. It proved to be a difficult week with two fish caught; a mirror of 22.5kg (49lb 8oz) and a very rarely caught koi of 5kg (11lb). The... mirror was a PB for Jeona - Congratulations & see you in the future!
On Lac Serreire, David, Chris, Steve, Stuart and Simon from the UK caught around 19 fish. Simon Davey had mirrors of 43lb (19.5kg), 37lb (17kg) and two upper 20s from the Outflow swim fishing close to the lily pads on the left side. Chris had around 5 fish from the Woods swim to 40lb (18kg), Stuart had around 7 fish from the Shallows to upper 30, Steve had a couple from the Island swim including a lovely PB 25lb (11.5kg) two-tone mirror and Dave had a nice 20lb common from the Double swim.
The lads on this week had a 43lb mirror from the Woods swim very soon after starting yesterday - Full report to follow in next weekend's catch report."
