Use your marker big man :lol: :lol:

I'm also there that week (27th May - 23rd June) in swim 6 :sun:

I have just spoken to Rob, who say's the whole region is fishing very slowly at present, hopefully they will all be awake and starving when we get there :)

Gentlemen:
Swim 2 is approx 2 metres deep, There is so much scope in swim 2 you have a lot of water to fish, find the old river bed it is approx 1 ft deeper than the rest with soft silt, Take some pole markers and row them out, fish the markers.
The dutch guys who were fishing swim 2 when we were there did this and had some good fish to 40 plus.
As I told Moth we fished single hook baits and very few freebies crumbled up to attract the fish.
The bait boat was a bonus and will be in swim 2, as there is less disturbance than when you are rowing out to place your baits.

Swim 6 is approx 4-5ft deep and acts like a channel between 1,2&4 to swim 3 and 5, again look for the old river bed.
Dont forget a bait in mid water as a mate of mine was in swim 6 and picked up a 41 common half way across.
Theres a lovely margin mark next to some reeds to the left of swim 6 under the pylons always worth a bait but didnt produce a fish whilst we were there.
It seemed as if they were using swim 6 as a run through to swim 3 so a zig rig might be worth a try to catch an unsuspecting lump.
Please let me know how you all get on as we booked next years trip today.

Cheers Will, although I have never fished there I have visted it to pay my balance the last few years when fishing other lakes they own, and have heard of some awesome captures, even last year whilst 4 of us were struggling in 100 degree sun to catch a couple at Maurepaire, the anglers on Jonchery still averaged 8 fish each, and as you know there are an abundance of lumps in there. We are just hoping the fish do spawn whilst we are there, which is always a risk at that time of year.
The next one will be a biggy

Hi Moth, we booked it last year whilst we were on Maurepaire and to be honest we would have had swims 4 & 6 but the only swims available were 1,2, 5 & 6 of which 2 & 6 are normally the better of the swims left.
See you there mate and get the kettle on as we wont be arriving until late afternoon. :( (bad ferry times as we left it late to book it, if you can call January late :blink: )
I have attached a nice shot of the lake for you :thumbs:
The next one will be a biggy

The lake looks good you have also answered some thing that i was thinking about marker poles and what to use, guess I will have to get the paint out.
My son is 12, so it will be good for them to have someone to talk to. :)
