Carp Fishing in Holidays in France.
We drained and netted the lake in October 2011 to remove any unwanted fish and to assess the Carp stock. We were pleased to see that the netting that was carried out in 2008 was successfull in that there were only a hadfull of bream and catfish left. These have no been removed so we are bream free. All of the roach were removed and a fair few Pike, Zander and large Perch were left in the lake. These should now keep down the poulation of silver fish and small Carp.
There were 260 Carp netted and returned ranging from 6kg to 19kg. These were all in perfect health and we are looking for larger weight gains for the future due to the reduced biomass and feeding regime.
