Maison Verre - first review

thanks for a brilliant weeks fishing at your lake. After 10 years we were a little apprehensive of what the lake would now be like but after 5mins of arriving any apprehensions soon vanished.

The overhaul of the house is unrecognisable from what it used to be and the addition of the veranda/patio area is superb! As for the lake, it was brilliant. It’s now much more open and accessible and made it feel much more sociable from our perspective, which was good as above all else it was our holiday. The ease of which you could set up your main swims then take a rod to other parts of the lake if you fancied a few hours change was great and no matter where you cast, margins or open water, single hook bait or pva also, we were almost guaranteed a bite each time.

We almost hit the 50 mark for the week (that’s fish photoed) but happy to settle for 49, with the last one coming out the morning of our last day, being also the largest carp of the week. This was achieved not fishing hard at all and for the most part with just one rod out each and no overnight fishing.

I think I can speak for the others in saying it was probably our best weeks fishing in France to date. Very relaxing and enjoyable and I shouldn’t be surprised to see us booking up for next year sometime soon.

Maison Verre - EMV renovation update

The renovation of the house is really ramping up now.  A few weeks ago saw the house plastered out completely and this week the new faux oak Porcelain tiles are being laid along with the new septic tank.

Next week will see the new swims created in front of the house along with the rest of the lake.

Another team of 3 workers arrive next week to spend 5 weeks completing work on the fishermans hut along with the garage.

We will then start the tree thinning on the new top lake getting ready for swim building and other works. 

post our opening week of June the 9th there are some great weeks to still be had.

Maison Verre - new cat fish lake stocked

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

 EMV February update. Cat lake is stocked!

We have taken delivery of our new cat fish now. 2 huge new cats re-homed in the MV cat lake that comes with EMV for 2017.

So we now have 9 cat fish from around 80 to in excess of 200lbs!

All in a compact 2 acre ish lake. All this is literally only 30m from the corner of the EMV house lake.

 

The EMV house lake has no cat fish stocked now only just under 100 carp. 3 Strugeon and 2 grass carp. We took this step to better bring on the thinned out original stock (chosen for their ability to grow) and the 53 new fish stocked over the last 2 Winters. The cat fish were getting too big and were eating anyhting under 25lbs!!

So 2018 should see some good fish weights now in EMV due to our intensive Winter feed campaign and also the biomass is far better with the Cats gone.
