The guys definitely looked like they had a great time and certainly made the most of their week. Some good fishing, the odd BBQ and a few beers whilst enjoying some lovely warm early October weather. They even managed to enjoy one or two of Marion’s home cooked meals during their stay.

Trev waited patiently for his first fish and then went on to record a few PB’s whilst Andrew went on to catch the most. Drew also recorded a PB and acted as cook for most of the trip. We look forward to seeing you all next year!

Recent visitors Andrew, Drew and Trev certainly picked a good week to visit Puyravaud late on in the season.

Andrew was on his third visit of the year and Drew his second and the first week of October turned out to be a hot week – for more than one reason!

The guys were able to chill AND get some late rays as they waited for some fishing action. As this shot shows they took full advantage of the weather in between catching some superb Puyravaud carp from our Heron Lake.

The guys bagged 21 carp with an average weight of 33lbs including a very nice 48.9lb Common PB for Drew. The team will be back next year for their first visit in April.

Gary Turner has been a regular visitor to Puyravaud and has just completed his 6th visit. Both Ross and John have just finished their second trip.

The guys have now all joined a pretty elite club – The Puyravaud 50’s Club, exclusively for those visitors who have bagged a 50lb+ carp with us. John was the final member of the group to join on this trip after catching a 50.6 mirror – he also had a nice 46lb mirror as well.

Both Ross and Gary had previously made the club with fish of just under 54lbs. The fishing was hard this time due to a big drop in temperature, but the guys still had a great time and visited one of the areas best restaurants, Grange Aux Oies, on their last night to celebrate!

Look forward to having you back guys



Terry and his lovely wife Christine returned for their second trip to Puyravaud and what a weeks fishing they had. Despite the really hot weather, Terry used all his years of experience to entice 16 carp from Kingfisher Lake. His week ended with 10 x 40’s and 6 x 30’s including two fish that weighed in a few ounces under 50lbs and an average weight of just over 42lbs! Not bad for a lake that was only stocked in November 2014 when average weights were 31lbs.

Terry was ably assisted by Christine who took some lovely shots, a selection of which are shown below.

Andrew and Drew returned for their second trip this year along with first timer Trevor, looking to tempt out some of our biggest carp on Heron Lake.

The week has started well for them and so far they have bagged 12 fish up to just under 50lbs including this beautiful 48.9lbs common. This is a new PB for Drew and he was understandably chuffed after being given a very hard fight from over in the far corner of the lake.

The guys have plenty of time to improve their tally and we are hoping this week will deliver some more wonderful Puyravaud carp.



We are already looking to improve things for the 2017 season and have just ordered 35 additional carp to stock Heron Lake. These fish will all be around the 25lb mark and help ensure our customers enjoy some good sport when they visit Puyravaud. We are always searching for the right stock balance in both our lakes and are confident this new stock will help improve things for 2017. Watch this space for pictures of the new stock going in during November.
