That’s it for the 2018 season, we will be back in Mid March 2019. Its been a pretty good season despite some stresses from the long hot, dry period. Overall, a very good year, particularly on Heron that yielded over double the number of 50’s compared to 2017 (26 in total). Kingfisher yielded 41 this year for a total of 67 across both lakes (55 in 2017). We had our first 60’s caught with our biggest fish weighing in at 63.0lbs.

We look forward to seeing new and existing customers at Puyravaud in 2019. All the best and thanks for your custom.
