The new season at scarper carper’s Lac de Paix has arrived with a bang… or two! The company, which provides self-drive fishing holidays in France, has announced the capture of two huge carp, with both fish falling to the same angler. Michael Martin’s first fish was also a new lake record! ‘Starburst’ weighed in at an impressive 56lb, and was caught on Michael’s first trip to Lac de Paix. Taken on Lake Special baits, the carp has packed the weight on over the winter and is looking good on it. His second fish was another new lake record, a 45lb 3oz common! Once again, the fish was in immaculate condition.

Just a quick update as to what has been happening at Les Quis during the winter. 

 Firstly, we have put in a drainage system that has enabled us to drop the levels of all four lakes by 18 inches. After the last four years of wet winters and even wetter spring times, the levels have gradually crept up making some of the swims tricky to fish due to water encroaching up the bank. Hopefully excess water is now a thing of the past!

Secondly, we have just had a delivery of new fish.
