Carp Fishing Trips: Catch report Etang Cheminel
Etang Cheminel was blanketed in hot sunshine all day on 12/05/18
resulting in some carp sunbathing. The majority of our six anglers’
fish came during darkness once the water was cooling down. The
biggest fish of the week weighed in at 45lb – well done, Mark, and
that was supported by a pretty even mix of 30s and 20s. We just never
saw the large numbers of 40lb-plus fish of previous weeks.

Etang Cheminel opened its gates for the first time this year last week.
Below is a post from the lake owner about one of the anglers…
One of our anglers arrived here for his first ever trip to France. His PB
was 13lb 8oz. As the week went on and he didn’t catch, I was delighted
by his attitude of “I’m here to enjoy myself and hopefully catch a carp.”
He refused to get down and miserable. Friday afternoon, I stayed with
him in the hope we could get a fish on the bank for him, but it wasn’t to
be. A couple of hours later he told me he had had a carp… of 13lb 8oz.
I didn’t know whether to laugh, cry, commiserate or just get a beer or
two down him. I wonder what the odds are for that achievement?
Anyway, this morning, I saw the biggest, happiest smile of the week.
The carp gods were kind to him and he landed this fish of 34lb. He’s on
his way home now feeling very pleased. Well done, Colin.
