What an Amazing Start!

13/03/2017

Ultimate Lake has long been one of north France's premier carp fishing destinations - and for good reason!

This week has been an incredible start to the season, in spite of a truly mixed bag of weather here. We have experienced high winds, driving rain, drizzly rain, low temperatures - then had a summer's day on Saturday!

Shaun and Dave have still enjoyed some good fishing - 28lbs, 44.12lbs, 40lbs, 56.7lbs, 39.8lbs, 55.14lbs, 46.11lbs, 35.7lbs, 30lbs and last, but not least 39.11lbs.

Good to see some anglers on the banks after a long and busy winter!

Watch this space this week for some exciting updates and new announcements from Ultimate Lake...

Ultimate Summer Season

01/09/2015

 It has been a busy summer at Ultimate Lake with a full house every week. We’ve had some great lads on the banks, and some cracking fish in spite of the searing heat for much of the time. Many of the boys went away with deep tans and personal bests!

In the last two weeks of July, Carl got through three kegs of beer and, although struggling with the heat, pulled the biggest fish of the week with a 55.8.

Pat, pictured with his 47.10, also did well in the last week of July with a 44 common, 44.6, 33.1, 20.6, 28 and a 36.6 – well done Pat!

Dave was happy with his 47lb beauty during the first week of August, when we could hardly breathe due to the heat, let alone the fish!

Paul, Jaz and Leroy had a staggering catch between them with Paul pulling a 55 as the week’s best catch (pictured).

Paul – 55, 53.8, 43, 4 x 30-38 and 3 x 20-29
Jaz – 3 x 30-38
Leroy – 48.5, 33, 39 and a 24

During the final week of August Andy and Tim caught the start of the first rains for weeks and Andy took some great photos.

We’re not done yet with a few weeks left of the season still to go and a handful of places left for discerning anglers in October. Head on over to Ultimate Lake, Northern France’s premier fishery, and add your name to our hall of fame.

What a Week at Ultimate Lake!

06/05/2015

With a mixed bag of weather last week and Fudge taking himself off for an adventure, it was a wild week for Mickey at Ultimate Lake.

Richard, George and Gareth kept him busy with a list of catches to make your head spin!

2 x 50’s, a 54 and a 56lb
5 x 40’s
14 x beauties between 30 & 39lbs
And 7 x between 20 & 29lbs

A good bunch of lads, some great fish and another superb week for Ultimate Lake.

Dave’s star of the party was this 48lb mirror and Scott’s was a 49lb common.

Second Incredible Week Ends on a High at Ultimate Lake

04/04/2015

It has been an amazing week of carp fishing in France at Ultimate Lake, which has really lived up to its name in only the second of the season.

Pat, Lee, Matthew and Justin have seen some fantastic fishing in conditions that have swung between mild temperatures, rain and high winds. Undeterred (of course) by the weather, the boys have pulled the following weights:

Pat & Lee
58.6lb – 52lb – 50.4lb – 43lb – 45lb – 43.4lb – 44.4lb – 44.8lb – 42lb – 36lb – 32lb – 32.4lb – 31.12lb – 34lb and the ‘baby’ of the bunch 29lb!

Matthew
46lb – 45.15lb – 36lb – 32.3lb – 52.8lb

Justin
56.10lb – 45.8lb – 29.13lb – 29.2lb

With anglers fighting for places at Ultimate Lake, Mickey sees no rest for the wicked this season and is still waiting for the lake record to come out… Pat got the closest at 58.6lb, but Mickey knows there is a bigger carp out there!

Well done lads, it’s been an incredible week at Ultimate Lake, one of France’s premier fisheries.

The Fishing Just Keeps Getting Better

30/03/2015

Mick has been run off his feet this weekend as his latest party of anglers has kept him busy in one of the best starts to the season Ultimate Lake has ever seen.

The star of the party has been Lee – with his beautiful 52lber – a stunning fish worthy of the party record. Pat is clearly pleased with his 44.4 lb catch, as is Matthew, pictured below with a gorgeous 45 lb carp.

Since Saturday, the party have caught some incredible fish, the smallest of which has been 30 lb!

The catches so far for the trio have been: 52lb, 45.15lb, 44.4lb, 44.8lb, 45lb, 32.4lb, 30lb, 32lb and 34lb. They must be keeping you fit Mickey!

The fourth member of the group has yet to get off the mark – come on Justin, we want to see your face on here too.

All the guys are happy at Ultimate Lake this week, and the week is yet young. Plenty of time for Justin to catch up and beat Lee’s star catch.

25/03/2015

Things just keep getting better at Ultimate Lake and Mickey proves his hard work over the winter months pays off as Roy pulls out a stunning 58lb carp on Sunday.

It was celebrations all round in this week’s angling party when Clive stole Roy’s thunder with his 58.1lber on Monday, just beating the party record!

Both lads are over the moon and Mickey is delighted with the week’s fish. Since the season started last week, his guests have seen 33lbers and upwards, promising to be a great season.

Poor weather, Great results!

28/02/2011

The trip was hard going with the weather against us all the way but with some effort and hard work we managed to have a few on the bank. This is our 5th trip to Ultimate which is still one of the best, if not the best,  venue I have fished in France. Even with a good week you know there are still alot of fish to catch and target so the return visits will probably not give you repeat catches (except Arthur in my case but hey at 52lb who cares).

The food is exceptional voted by all that have had the package and say they were fed better than they are at home, all freshly cooked on the day with a varied menu to suit you, nothing in the microwave, just proper food and a superb English breakfast.

Mick will work with you to help you catch even if that means he is up at 3 in the morning to help or reposition baits. He knows the lake well as he lives on it and can watch it 365 days a year so its worth listening to him.(he does know what he's talking about).

In a nut shell a fantastic stock, great food, lovely surroundings and run by a star, as bailiffs go. Nice one again Mick from Kev, Chris and Dave see you in October.
