Approach the lake quietly and remain quiet, use a good bait and heavily bait one area and stalk in the margins.

Like many French venue Blue Dart gives the angler a chance to bank some serious fish and the approach that the owner recommends is to start with one heavily baited area and stalking the margins.

Don’t stray too far away from the tactics that work in England, there are plenty of fish, they like bait and will happily feed under your rod tips.

Glugging hookbaits is a proven tactic at Blue Dart, make them stand out in the crowd of crumbed and chopped boilies always puts fish on the bank.

Most standard bottom bait rigs work well as well as hinged stiff rigs and the Ronnie rig for pop ups, critically balanced is a must with pop ups.

In summer fishing the margins and the shallow end of lake are the go to locations.

In winter, the damn wall is the holding area for the majority of the carp in the colder periods.

Make sure to take advantage of the rowing boat for accurate baiting of an area and bring a bait boat, distance sticks, marker rod & good bait to give yourself the best chance of doing well.
