Etang de Planchon is a friendly carp fishing destination within the Haute Vienne region of France, near the lovely market town of Chateauponsac which has bars, restaurants and shops and is 30 minutes away from Limoges Airport. Here is their latest catch report.
Week 13 saw the arrival of Ross Clarke from Lincolnshire for a week & also a French angler (Johan Bonnefond) for 2 nights
Ross arrived with his wife Carrie and didn’t fish hard for the whole week, taking time out to spend with Carrie over the week. As Ross had the lake to himself he decided on moving around, he started in Kestrel, moved to Falcon and decided to move back to Kestrel at the end of the week.
Towards the end of the week Ross followed Lewis’ example from the previous week and experimented with big beds of bait (Hemp, Pellet & Boilie).
This method seems to be working as it resulted in 3 rods going off in quick succession on Ross’ last afternoon.
Ross managed to bag himself 15 Fish for the week, 1 of which was a 31.6lb.
His total catch weight for the week was 347 lb & 8 oz and his catches were: 17.5lb, 3 x 20lb, 20.8lb, 2 x 22lb, 22.2lb, 23.3lb, 24lb, 24.2lb, 26.8lb, 26.10lb, 27.2lb & 31.6lb.
Ross enjoyed his week and was happy that he managed to walk away with having caught 15 Carp including a 30lber.
Johan Bonnefond from Limoges stayed for 2 nights and managed to bag himself 2 fish, they were: 26.5lb & 30.5lb.
Johan was happy to have beaten his PB with the 30lb fish and wants to return regularly for short sessions.
