We want each and every angler who visits Etang des Landes to have a great time and to catch some of our beautiful carp, here are some tips on bait and tactics to help you do just that.
OUR VENUE BOILIES
We have fabricated a boilie especially for our lake made from our carp pellet, these boilies are made here in France and we know exactly what goes into them, our boilies benefit the health and growth of our stock and help maintain our exceptional water quality, they have accounted for all of our big fish including the current lake record. Our boilies and pellet are fed into the lake in large quantities all year round and the carp see them as a natural food source, we know as the evidence is clear to see in the slings as the bait is passing through the fish, this is a sign that makes all carp anglers confident in their bait choice. Please Note – EDL boilies are sold to anglers at cost price, for the benefit of the fishing and the future of our growing stock. We have no dealings with any bait companies, our boilies are made exclusively for our lake and can only be purchased from Etang des Landes.
We have made major investments in our on going stocking programme to benefit our customers, all newly stocked fish will always be hand picked by ourselves and will have all been raised on the best quality feed pellet. These new stockings should make the fishing epic at Landes. In order to benefit our present and future customers, we would like our new stock along with our current residents to be fed and raised on the best possible diet that they can have from the very start, this is why we are only allowing our EDL boilies and EDL pellet as feed from the 2017 season onwards. When you look at our rules page you will notice that we allow each angler to bring with them strictly a maximum of 2kg of fresh / frozen boilies to use as hook baits if they wish to, we will only allow baits from major bait companies such as Mainline / CC Moore / Baitworks etc so we know what is going into our lake, a good choice would be Mainline cell as it is very similar to our venue baits. Fishmeal baits don’t seem to work here for some reason we don’t know why ! If you are in doubt on what baits we allow at the venue make sure you ask us before your trip as we will check baits ! All particle baits, groundbaits, nuts baits and all liquids including glugs and goo’s are not allowed, the reason for this is so we can keep our water quality in the best condition possible, to keep our dissolved oxygen levels high so the fish are in the best possible condition, this will keep them feeding for longer for our anglers to benefit. Rig Choice & Tactics
– A whole range of tactics will catch our fish, but we have found over the last few years that a simple bottom bait rig with a single EDL boilie in either flavour presented on a long hair rig fished over spombed EDL pellet and crushed boilie has worked the best.
