    Default Fishing France - last trip for 2012.

    Got back from my last French Carp fishing trip of 2012 yesterday and to be honest, was a bit of a boring trip !
    I'm not going to do my usual trip diary because not much happened really.
    The weather was cold and very wet at times and the fishing was very slow due to the lake water level dropping about 3 feet(something we weren't happy about because we hadn't been told about it). this made the fish shoal up in one area of the 26 acre lake, hence why i struggled to catch much because what was caught, were all being caught on the opposite side of the lake.
    So, i managed to catch 2 x 30lb fish, biggest was 35lb 3oz, the other 33lb 11oz. Both Mirror Carp. I lost one at the net estimated around 40lb again a Mirror and lost a further 4 fish in the dense weedbeds. Suppose for November and the weather as bad as it was, i can't really grumble.
    Took some arty-farty shots due to lack of fish.
    Next trip is the first week of April, different lakes different challenges !
