Had the most fantastic week at Lac Solace.
Had the most fantastic week at Lac Solace. Having fished Lac du Coron previously we were expecting great things from Nic and it didn't disappoint. The lake was a perfect size for 3 people to have their own piece of water for their 3 rods.
We fished safe in the knowledge that there were no snags apart from a few, small clumps of weed that you can wade out to if needed.
The fishing was great fun with 2 of us obtaining 1 or more PBs topped by 2 x 38lb commons, 39lb 14oz, 41lb, 42lb and 46lb mirrors. Nic was a superb host and his knowledge of the lake aided us in our captures. Wont be too long till we are back. see you soon.
18 months in the waiting and despite many obstacles the week arrived. Easy communication and arrival, quick spin round the lake and get set up.
Nic advised on spots to fish, and using his own bait (get on the wafters !) I set up in the Old Jetty with a view to feeding and fishing The Bench and Wallace's in the day. Slow start but the fish started to feed over the bait ending up with mirrors of 43, 39-10, 36-2, 33-8, 29-2 and 21-10 and commons of 36-3 (PB), 35-12, 17-8 and a low double wildie. Great social on the Tuesday night with Nic with a takeaway and a mid 50 for Nic next morning.
Lovely people, great lake, secluded, private and peaceful with amazing wildlife to boot. I will return
Lac solace is what carp fishing is all about.
Having kept up to date with the progress of the lake since purchase it was better than I could ever have expected.
Rumbling down the track in the ole transit we were welcomed by a sweeping meadow of wild flowers, an abundance of wildlife and a real sense of nature.
This is what carp fishing is all about to.
The lake ... approximately 3 acres in size is an ideal challenge for any experienced angler, with a rock hard bottom, weed beds and inviting margins to explore.
During our stay the weather was amazing ... luckily the residence agreed and we were able to see the some of the huge specimens Nic has hand picked sunning themselves in all areas of the lake.
