50 fish in 4 days from Meillant

01 September 2013

Having fished Chalet Lake many times before I had heard a lot about Lake Melliant but never had the opportunity to partake in the action. This year however, I was fortunate enough to have a short window in my diary where a friend and I could get out there and have a short 4 day session on the lake.

After a relatively easy drive down we arrived to see fish crashing all over the lake, patches of bubbles and feeding fish some only 40 yards off the stagings. Anxious to get the rods out the walk around was short and sweet and within the hour we were both fishing.

My first run coming before I’d even got the bivvy up, a 30lb 6oz mirror and from then on the runs never stopped.
Over the 4 days we landed 50 fish between the two of us, including 8 x 30’s and 3 x 40’s, the largest fish being 44lb 14oz.

Whilst I opted to move around and fish different areas, Ant fished his 3 rods in the same spots for the 4 days, all cast out to 40 or so yards, taking 29 of our 50 fish. Given that we had never fished the lake before this was a great result for us. We both fish very different styles, with different approaches and certainly different baits, which just goes to show how fishable this water really is!

A thoroughly enjoyable trip and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet but busy fishing holiday with some quality, hard fishing French carp.
