Margot has definitely become established as 1 of the premiere big fish waters in France, its combination of rural tranquillity & awesome stock of very large carp make it a very popular destination for specimen anglers. Situated in a rural & agricultural landscape within 2.5 hours drive from the port of Caen. It is possible to book the lake exclusively 12 acres in size, Margot has 8 pegs for a maximum of 8 anglers Its a relatively shallow lake 2ft to 8ft with a clay, fine silt bottom. The maximum distance you probably need to cast is just under 100 yards but most fish get caught within 30 yards of the bank. There are 3 boats on site which are available for your use. Stock, owned by one of Frances most respected fish farmers Michel Bigot so as you can imagine the carp stocks are awesome. Put quite simply he has readily available what most lakes just cannot get their hands on an almost limitless supply of big carp. The current stock is over 400 carp up to 66.lb. At least 100 fish are over the 30.lbs+ barrier & around 30 over 40.lbs+. The current record is an awesome common carp that weighs in at 66.lbs+. The Koi carp go to 36.lbs+ & the grass carp to 45.lbs++. The current sturgeon record is 67.lbs+. Because he is a fish farmer Michel regularly adds new stock. In total 70 large carp to 49.lbs+ & 4 Koi were introduced to this prolific venue. The vast majority of the carp were in the high 20lbs to low 30lbs with the jewel in the crown being a magnificent 49.lbs+ common, what a superb fish. So now there are 2 very large commons in this famous lake including the lake record of 66.lbs+. There is cabin on the bankside for the use of anglers which includes eating area, full kitchen facilities, English style toilet & shower. There are also BBQ facilities outside. Mini markets are within 2 minutes of the lake & hypermarkets 10 minutes. DONT FORGET TO LET THEM KNOW WHERE YOU FOUND THEM www.carpinfo.co.uk
