This week we had a family group, Charlie, Ben, Jake & Dad Phil who came as a non fishing guest, this was there second visit to Etang des Landes & they certainly didn’t go home disappointed ! Ben & Jake were the real keen anglers where as Charlie only fished on & off during his stay. Weeks weather – apart from a small amount of rain on Saturday the week was very hot with temps upto 38 degrees in the shade. Tactics – after losing a couple of fish on their go to rigs I advised them to change their rigs to what we know call the EDL rigs which are basically either a kd rig or blowback rig with an extra long hair, this is fished with a single EDL boilie bottom bait on a size 4 curve shank hook over EDL free offerings. Nailed ! this worked a treat for the lads, the hook holds were so solid that they were definitely not coming off after this change. How did they do – the lads managed 15 fish to 48lbs & lost 3. Both Ben & Jake beat their old pbs which were also from Etang des Landes so there were smiles all round. My thoughts – thanks for coming back to visit our lake again, it was a pleasure helping you guys out with the new rigs & doing some of your photos for you, top top lads ! Both Tina & I are looking forward to welcoming you all back next year !
