The fishing is fantastic

Just finished our second visit to Beausoleil and second time around was even better than our first! Having been to a number of French carp venues in the past nothing compared to Beausoleil, and that is completely down to the care and dedication of the venue owners. The fishing is fantastic, a perfect balance of challenge and enjoyment. The carp are smart and the catfish are warriors . . . . but listen to Matt’s guidance, read the catch reports & follow the lake rules and you will have a great week of fishing. The rush of fighting a 100lb+ catfish is brilliant, exhausting, but brilliant! We will be returning for our third visit very soon!

A small piece of paradise

Beausoleil is a small piece of paradise, we love it. The enthusiasm and hospitality of owners Matt and Ren is limitless. The fish are healthy and immaculate, the stock of 30lb carp is fantastic for a lake of its size along with good handful pushing through the 40lb barrier… and the catfish are enormous! The difficulty level of Beausoleil is not severe, there’s just a few hidden secrets under the surface of the water which means you need to get the basics right. I would highly recommend booking a tutorial with Matt and reading the blogs / catch reports he writes. I’ve implemented a lot of things he showed me during my first trip into my fishing and it’s made me a better angler for it.
