2009 - PECHE D'HIVER - 25% de Remise jusqu'au 20 Mars 2010....

Le Domaine des Iles étant ouvert cet hiver et qui plus est avec une réduction de 25%, j'allais en profiter pour faire une session au chalet du grand étang le week-end du 4/12 au 7/12. Les conditions climatiques étaient idéales pour cette saison avec un vent du sud qui tapait sur ma berge et par conséquent des températures plutôt clémentes pour un mois de décembre. Je venais ici pour finir ma saison de pêche avec pour objectif de prendre quelques poissons afin de garnir mon album photo.
A 16h, toutes les lignes étaient en place et 5 minutes après j'avais mon premier départ avec une décroche à l'arrivée. Tant pis, ce n'était que partie remise. En effet, 10 minutes après je fis mon premier poisson avec une miroir de 15.2kg. Jusque 23h, j'obtenais encore 6 autres carpes miroirs avec des poids allant de 14kg à 15.5kg. Après cela, le temps se mit à changer avec des rafales de vent ainsi qu'une pluie violente entrainant un arrêt soudain des touches.
Le lendemain , le temps était identique à celui de la veille et les poissons se remirent à mordre. Ainsi entre le samedi à 9h et le dimanche à 11h je mis au sec 11 nouvelles carpes avec des poids variant de 14kg à 17.5kg, ce qui me faisait un total de 265kg de carpes en 48h de pêche. Cela était magnifique pour moi car jamais je n'aurais imaginé en prendre autant sur aussi peu de temps.
Ma pêche étant faite et la fatigue de 2 nuits blanches se faisant sentir je préférais rentrer à la maison avec de merveilleux souvenirs plein la tête. Je laissais ces belles tranquilles car avec tout le plaisir qu'elles m'ont proccuré, elles le méritaient bien. En effet si vous respectez la carpe, elle saura vous le rendre au bord de l'eau avec des moments inoubliables comme je viens d'en vivre ce week-end.
Je tiens à signaler également qu' il ne sert à rien de jeter de grosses quantités d'appâts dans l'eau (elles se méfient beaucoup plus de vos amorçages dans ce cas) car un minimum peut rapporter un maximum de résultats et c'est ce qui s'est produit pour moi ce week-end. Croyez-en ma jeune expérience de carpistes et vous ne serez pas déçus.
Je tiens à remercier M. et Mme Caron pour leur hospitalité qui comme à leur habitude est toujours au top et c'est pourquoi je ne cesserai jamais de venter les mérites du Domaine des Iles qui est un endroit magnifique pour tout pêcheur.

Merci à vous et à bientôt pour de nouvelles sessions .

Bonjour,

Je ne disposais que du week-end du 1er au 3 aout pour pecher et mon choix se portait sur le poste du chalet du grand étang où les conditions climatiques étaient réunies pour réaliser une bonne session;ne rester maintenant qu'à mettre les montages au bon endroit.
Pour cela j'allais mettre 1 canne le long de la bordure de gauche,1 canne dans le petit chenal à ma gauche(à ne surtout pas négliger car cela vous rapportera de bonnes surprises!) et 2 en pleine eau avec un amorçage plus conséquent afin de tromper la carpe qui est habituée à avoir des amorçages au spot avec l'aide du bateau amorceur .Cela allait payer car j'allais réaliser des départs sur toutes mes cannes avec 12 au total pour 8 poissons dans l'épuisette avec des poissons dont les poids étaient compris entre 12.5kg et 21.3kg(avec 6 carpes et 2 silures).
Cette session restera inoubliable pour moi car elle m'a permis de battre mon record personnel avec la prise d'une magnifique commune de 21.3kg;j'étais vraiment très ravis et pour cela je remercie encore Mr et Mme Caron qui sont des personnes accueillantes dans une propriété qui pour moi est le plus agréable de tous les domaines de peche à la carpe de part sa tranquilité,sa beauté et surtout son potentiel en gros poissons qui sont pour moi les éléments clés que recherchent tous carpistes aujourd'hui.

Merci à vous et à bientot.
Raphael.

Christophe DECHERF, français, a battu le record de l’étang avec 508 Kilos de poissons pour un pécheur sur une semaine.
Ce record était détenu la semaine précédente par 2 anglais avec 1 300 livres de poissons sur 6 jours. Christophe a pris leur poste de péche pour ses 4 derniers jours, où ils s’étaient d’ailleurs rencontrés et échangé leur technique de péche.
Ce qui totalise sur ce poste plus d’une tonne de poissons comprenant :pour les anglais Silures jusqu’à 57.5 lbs – 1 Carpe Commune de 50 lbs et 1 Carpe Miroir de 53.5lbs la même nuit, plus bien sûr de nombreux autres poissons.

A Tale Of 2 Sixties....

Yet another enjoyable stay at the Main Lodge this week and sorry that we have to leave so soon but glad to be leaving the fishing here in the hands of my 2 friends Mark & Steve who will be arriving as we leave on Monday - I hope they have a good catch too, but not that good so that they beat my new PB and they know that when we fish together I am always "top rod" !!! I have left the bottle of bubbly in the fridge !!

In total I managed to net numerous bream of differing weights and 210lb of catfish: 21lb, 28lb, 30lb, 31lb, 40lb and my first 60lb !!! It gave a good fight and I managed to land it with help from my son Ade, it was nearly as big as him !

Also I netted 240lb of Carp: 32lb mirror, 32lb common, 37lb mirror, 38lb common, 41lb mirror and a whopping 60lb common !!! Unfortunately I also lost 4 other fish.

I have beaten my PB on this lake again with the 60lb catfish and common carp. I had always dreamt that one day I would catch a 40lb carp and then I did at DDI in 2006. I came back the following year and caught a 57lb carp and then a 53lb in 2008. Then this year I did it - the big one, my dreams of a sixty came true with a fantastic common, we could not believe what we were looking at as it came to the surface in the net, I looked at Ade and we both knew it was a big one !!! I knew from the look on his face that it was a corker as soon as he had netted it.

I must also say a big Thank you to Bernard and his wife for their hospitality and the warm welcome they gave to my family, also the chance to catch the wonderful big fish in their lake. It was great to meet Paul Wheeler at long last and it could not have been under better circumstances as he came over to see the 60lb common with Paul Masters. Great to meet once again Paul and Jean Masters. See you soon.

Ant, Jeanette and Ade Fowell, Cheadle, Staffs.

Domaine des Iles - OFFOY - France - 1 – 8 May 2009

Before we realise its the fifth of may when we clean our spots, by boat just like our neighbours Eric and Eelco, and a few hours later at 19.00 h we put our rods out. It takes us half an hour because of the wind, as soon as we finish we start our dinner on Tarin Spot. Just as we nearly finished the second rod on the forties bush makes some noise, to alarm us. We go back to Loriot to take a look, but it stays quiet. We sit down to finish our drinks, and I make a comment about the weights on Hans his swingers. I put them all on a smaller weight; First the second rod, than the First rod, when I suddenly see the middle swinger lifted a bit, without a noise. I take the rod in a reflex and pull it backwards. Hans is not happy with my action and says, Hey you wanker what are you doing? I got irritated and gave him the rod, here its yours. I was surprised by my own action. Is there something caught? Negative is the answer. Shit maybe he was right were my thoughts. “Yep we got some” and I felt saved. The next thing is the line that turns quickly towards the lodge on the other side of our swim. I shout; Lock it down our we will lose it. Hans tries to stop the fish, because she is still accelerating speed. She gets stopped just 2 meters from the other corner and you could hear us swallow our fear, and once again as I see her turn with here flank upwards. Give her some space and play it nicely, Hans did not see her yet, but when she turns for the second time we both hold our breaths. We are glad when we can net her without problems. And when we raise the fish out of the water we nearly start crying. All the rest is like a dream, we install camera and video and see the needle stopping on the 28k mark. Twenty eight kilo… 62lbs, its unbelievable. As soon as we finish our photo and video shoot, we put her carefully back into the water. And when she leaves the weight sling, she turns to the left back to our swim, to show off her beautiful body one more time, waves with here tail to disappear into the water. We are quiet, really quiet just trying to imagine what just had happened to us.
We came back to earth as soon we heard the noise of a small motor, it’s the baitboot of our neighbours Eric and Eelco that brings us two Belgium King bears, Those guys have the heart on the right place.

Cheers mates.
Hans & Hans.

I've attached the photo's of the biggest fish.
We had a very, very nice week. Thank you again and i'll see you back in september as i come back with Wilfred.

greetings Johan and Folkert


The new season has started well with many fish to 46lbs.Paul Wheeler fished the easter weekend and as well as haveing six fish to 34lb decided to taste some of the excellent pleasure fishing that is available. Fishing for about 4 hours his 10k bag of fish consisted of many roach and rudd to around 1lb bream to 4lb and a couple of lively eels! Commenting on his catch he said.
"This is a pleasure fishermans paradise and an excellent addition to the world class carp fishing available. Its amazing what a couple of pints of maggots will catch you."

"Bonjour Bernard,
As promised, I have attached some photos of our fantastic trip with you
to the back lake this Easter.
Although it was only Sam and I who really fished for carp, Helen, Jack
and Georgia also had a great week, visiting Ham and the surrounding
areas, catching silver fish, reading, playing games and just generally
relaxing within the Grounds of DDI.
The lodge was as immaculate as ever and the weather allowed us to eat
outside on the terrace everyday.
Now to the best part, catching the back lake carp!!!
We had 28 carp in all which totalled over 650Lbs or 295 Kilos.
9, doubles,
16, 20`s (up to 29lb)
2 30,s (up to 35lb)
1 40 at 42lb 4oz.

The 42lb 4 oz mirror that Sam caught this trip was the same fish he
caught last year at 39lb 12oz. It was very easy to spot and he
recognised it in the landing net as it has a small lump on its right
hand flank.

Thanks again Bernard, I'm now going back to work for a rest.
See you in two weeks.
Darren Knight."
