Lac du Val - LAC DU VAL'S SECOND MAJOR STOCKING!!!

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

 Well. We must admit that our posts have been a bit few and far between recently but I'm sure your not interested in the amount of trees that have gone into the lake, due to the recent storms we have all experienced etc. 😫😫

Is anyone interested in "Lac du Val’s" stocking programme this year?
🤔🤔

And anything new that's swimming around?

..........

Because it's that time of the year again !!!!!

😄😍🔥❤️🙏💪🤜🤛 💯🎣🎣🎣

In total, we have finally managed to source an additional ➡️ 9 fish ⬅️ !!!!
🎊🎉💯❤️😍🔥🙏🎣🎣🎣🎣
This is our second stocking since we took over Lac du Val.

Some might think this is an easy task, but I assure you, it's not quite as straight forward as it sounds, when you are looking at purchasing from a reputable supplier. Our new residents will definitely compliment our current stock and in return, give you guys some new stunners to target.

The stocking 2020:

6 mirrors, to include an absolutely stunning scaley @ 26lb, a 39lb 13oz, a 41lb 8oz, a 45lb 8oz, a 47lb 6oz and a "51lb", to accompany hopefully another of our 50's, "Cailiñ" whose best weight last year went to 48lb. All absolutely cracking and in perfect condition

And then there's the commons. Another "Ghosty" @ 34lb, to go with our current resident Ghosty "Casper" who's best weight last year was 44lb. And to join our biggest common "Survivor", another of our current big fish hopefully hitting the magical 50lb plus this year, a 38lb 8 oz and a 45lb 5oz

To summarise, 1 x 24lb, 3 x 30's to 39lb 13oz, 4 x 40's to 47lb 6oz and a 51lber which we feel is getting "Lac du Val" to where we want it.

Unfortunately, after hand picking these fish and having to travel over 400 miles to get home, we did not want to stress them out any more than necessary, and only took pictures of the ones that were prepared to have their mug shot taken in 10 seconds flat, which amounted to just the 5 mirrors & a common. The others were having none of it !!!! We'll leave it up to you guys to provide additional pictures during the coming season when you have them on the bank.

Are we whetting your appetite for this years fishing experience ?

So which one catches your eye?

Not too long now before we welcome back our regulars and new comers here at ➡️ Lac du Val ⬅️.

Tight lines!!!!

These included a 40lb plus lump each for themselves, with Richard breaking his PB 4 times consecutively, but Alfie stealing the limelight, nailing our newly stocked ghostie, ➡️ "Casper" ⬅️, one of his target fish for the week.

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

 It's just getting better and better here at ➡️ “Lac du Val” ⬅️ for the anglers this season.

New first time guests for us, Aidan Jones and Stephen Watson have banked a total of 19 fish between them.

Aidan got off to a flying start, banking 4 fish in his first 24 hrs, and then settled down to a steady catch rate, leaving it to the last 24 hrs to break his PB with a cracking common hitting the scales at an impressive 35lb 1oz

Steve had a slow start to the week but his patience paid off, which produced not one but 3 Pb's for him, getting bigger and bigger until he nailed 👉"Cailiñ"👈, one of our resident big mirror's at 47lb 12oz !!!

Well done guys 👍🙌💥💯🎣✅ Tight lines!!

 “Irish Carpers” member Sean smashed his PB with a cracking mirror hitting the scales at 42lb 12oz 🙌👍💯💥🎣. One of our new fish stocked this winter, slightly down on her weight but as expected. Well done Sean Top dangling!!!

He and John finished their week with 22 fish on the bank, (plus dropping 7), which included John's PB common, "Survivor" hitting the scales @ 44lb 8oz. Along with 3 x 30's to 36lb 4oz and 14 mid to high 20's, it's safe to say they had a cracking weeks holiday. Well done guys!! 🙂

Lac du Val - New Lake Record Mirror 48lb New Pb for Shane!!

Blog Post Image

The season is kicking off to a good start here at “Lac du Val” with some of the “Big Girls” starting to get their heads down. With the targets set high last week with two 40’s gracing the bank, the biggest @ 45lb 15 oz, we didn’t expect the leader board to change so soon.

Shane Heary, on his first visit here, after traveling all the way from Ireland with returning friend Liam Mulligan, smashed his PB this morning with a cracking mirror on the bank, hitting the scales at 48lb on the nose !!!! 💥💥💥
To say he was happy is an understatement. Top angling Shane 🙌👍💪💯🎣

Will this one be hitting the magical big
“ 5️⃣ 0️⃣ “this year ????

Watch this space 😀

Who’s up next for knocking Shane off the top spot ???? Hopefully it’s
👉 YOU 👈 ‼️
