Well where do we start, after months of planning and anticipation The DanglersNation team were ready to take on the challenge of Eden’s Lakes North lake, it was a testing start for the team with less then ideal weather making the fishing very slow, team member James Silton was first off the mark with a new PB at 42lb 12oz’s fishing the deeper end of the lake.
That was the only action the team saw up until the early hours of Thursday morning when owner David Smith bagged himself a 40 to get in on the action. The team stuck to their guns and trusted in Dene’s advice and with a change for the better in the weather the lake seemed to switch on overnight as the team managed to land 6 more carp on the last day including a very welcome lake record caught by team member Jordan Hagger, a fish known as split tail weighing in at a massive 60lb 4oz’s !!!
The team managed 8 fish all in all, two 30’s, five 40’s and a complex record 60 ! A successful week for our lads.
The guys fished a mixture of Edens particle, pellet & boilie which is all available from the on site tackle shop at very competitive prices, the particle and pellet are a must as the lake is fed on this through the winter months.
Something For Everyone
Set in the heart of the French countryside Eden’s lakes offers something for everyone from experienced anglers to family fun on the smaller runs waters, All 3 carp lakes at Eden’s are fed by a number of sources which include streams and natural springs which were constructed in 1994 as part of a specific plan to create a fish farm that would produce fish for the table. The site is built on very rich agricultural land and is extremely rich in nutrients and natural foods, this is what sets Edens apart from other venues and makes the outstanding weight gains that the fish have seen possible.
The North Lake itself is aimed at the more experienced angler, loaded with big carp and plenty of target fish it definitely leaves you wanting more. It’s immaculate purpose built swims are very spacious and offer plenty of options for 3 rods, each swim different from the last and packed with underwater features. With Eden’s Lakes first 60 now confirmed it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the illusive A team make an appearance and with Dene’s knowledge and feeding programs in place the odds are pretty good on there being plenty more records broken this year at Edens.
“The hospitality shown by owners Karen & Dene was second to none, they really made us feel welcome and offered us plenty of advice and information on fishing the North Lake. Dene is an ex chef and Karen must have been one in a past life as both are excellent cooks, we were extremely impressed with the food package. A full English breakfast everyday and a 3 course meal at dinner with very reasonably priced drinks. They even popped open a bottle of bubbly for us on curry night after Jordan bagged the complex record!!
We couldn’t have asked for more from a weeks fishing in France and we can’t wait to come back and have a go at the rest of those north lake scaly’s, once again a massive thank you to Karen & Dene, see you both soon”
