Catching Monster Carp at Cherpont Lake in France with Euro Carp Tours & Innate Baits

Friday 11 August 2017

So... Fishing in France... What can I tell you? Monsters! Absolute monsters! I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to fish at Cherpont Lake (Etang de Cherpont) in France with Euro Carp Tours and what a trip it turned out to be ;)

A slow (but HUGE) start but the fishing really picked up as the week went on. I landed 12 monstrous carp in all, with the biggest being a 55lb PB doubling mirror that just blew me away!

A massive thank you to Terry and Steve Smith at Euro Carp tours who made this whole trip possible.

Innate Baits

I've been a field tester for Innate Baits for several years now and can't fault them.

Innate baits are a family run business that supply high quality bait to fisheries and the public. Fronted by the main man himself Terry Smith, who has a wealth of knowledge from his years in the fishing industry.

Terry's knowledge has been established through a passion for fishing and fishery management, as a fishery owner himself he knows what makes a good bait!

The range of baits have been developed through long term use by the Innate team and our loyal customers.

Fish with confidence - "The natural choice, every time"
