What customers say about carp fishing in France at Lords Lake, including their catch reports and general comments.
Exceptional WeekBy Ryan, Andy and Paul Jones on 14 September 2019
Facilities have been fantastic at Lord’s, lovely shower with hot water. Lake has been very kind. Carp cradles need updating now, very poor condition.
Fishing Tactics: Snowman or pop ups over particle and pellet with chopped and whole boilies. Not big beds, just for one bite at a time. Map of spots see below.
Overall exceptional week at Lord’s we will be returning. Personal bests set 12 times.
21 Fish and one kitten:
19 Carp - 1 x 50, 1 x 40, 11 x 30s (1 grass) and 6 x 20s (1 grass). Catfish - 2 x 80s.
Nice Lake. Good Setting.By Rob Halstead on 7 September 2019
Nice quiet lake in a good setting. Enjoyed a relaxing week. Facilities had every thing you needed - toilet, shower and cooking facilities. Luxury by our usual fishing standards. Cabin could generally do with some TLC - cleaned cooking kit before we used. Could do with policing a little. Fished well to left, badly to right. Couldn't figure out why, but not the best for man on right.
Fishing Tactics: Bed of particle with mini boilie and small high attracts over the top. Left and far bank productive for carp (right not so good). Big smelly bait over pellet for cats. Casting singles at showing fish also produced bites.
7 carp - 2 x 30s and 5 x 20s (2 grass). 4 Cats - 1 x 90, 2 x 80s and 1 x 40.
Great Venue Excellent FacilitiesBy Darren and Terry Goldhawk on 31 August 2019
Great venue facilities are excellent. For our first time fishing in France it was an excellent week and we enjoyed it very much. Will defo be back.
Fishing Tactics: Big beds of mixed particle with pellets and boilies (chop/crumb) to the far bank. Left side produced the most fish. All catches were at night or at first light.
12 Fish: Carp - 1 x 50, 2 x 40s, 5 x 30s and 3 x 20s. Cats - 1 x 24lb.

ExcellentBy Steve, Stuart & Phil Morgan on 17 August 2019
Accommodation excellent. Shower very good (always hot). Fishing was slow in direct sunlight and cold nights, but fished well when overcast.
Fishing Tactics: Beds of particle 3/4 down the lake and about 10 boilies + a few chops. Wafters and pop ups worked best.
20 carp - 1 x 40, 8 x 30s (1 grass), 10 x 20s (2 grass) and 1 x 18lb grass carp.
3 cats - 1 x 80, 1 x 70 and a kitten
Hard FishingBy Barry Costello on 10 August 2019
Fishing very hard this week. Facilities are very good - basic and clean.
Fishing and Catches: Lake switched off. Only small cats took the bait this time.
Great value For MoneyBy Alan Topley & Ollie Robinson on 27 July 2019
Great value for money and plenty of fish to be had. Perfect lodge on swim with cooker and microwave. Nice shower and ideal for 2 anglers.
Fishing Tactics: Big bed of boilies, pellet and particles spread around your area. Catching spots were all across the far margin (left, middle and right), 3/4 of the way to the far margin (middle and right) and left and right margins (half way).
23 Fish, including 5 new PBs:
1 x 40, 10 x 30s (3 grass), 8 x 20s (4 grass), 3 x teens (1 koi) and a 91lb catfish.
2nd TripBy Nigel Riggs on 20 July 2019
2nd trip here. Could do with a few more dishes to put in the microwave and a few extra knives would be handy. Lodge needs a bit of TLC.
Fishing Tactics: Boat full of bait to far bank. Dead midday.
10 fish, and a PB catfish: 1 x 46lb 14oz, 2 x 30s, 5 x 20s (2 grass) and 1 x 19lb grass.
Hot Weather Made Fishing HardBy Richard Butler on 13 July 2019
Very nice facilities, good shower (always hot water) fridge and freezer. Laurent and Shirley top notch as always. Shops nice and close. Very warm, making it hard work with the fishing. Hard fishing, but with effort great to be on a venue that you can still catch despite that (that's fishing).
Fishing Tactics: Very small amounts of bait. Left hand margin, right down to the corner. Tigers and corn caught best (pellets just caught kittens, of which we had loads).
9 Carp - 3 x 30s (1 grass) and 6 x 20s. Biggest carp - 39lb 12 oz mirror.
