Over the last three or four years I have filmed the lakes and some of the fish during all of the seasons of the year. I thought is would be nice to put a clip together showing these changing seasons and some of the varied fish that populate the waters of these lakes.
Here is my latest Croix Blanche video clip. A few sequences shot during the summer of 2011. Andy Lear and his friends join me in the video.
A short clip shot in June 2010 showing the tactics for catching catfish at the Croix Blanche venue in northern France. Top cat angler Ron Woodward goes through the best techniques to tempt these top predators.
A short film on the snowy conditions experienced at our Croix Blanche lakes this week. Several inches of snow fell over the area in the Aisne region. Despite this we were able to get down and feed the fish in the stock pond, which fortunately was not frozen over. Nathalie explains a little about the feeding and the venue.
Croix Blanche Lakes : Stocking November 2009: November 6th a new batch of young three year old carp go into my stock pond at Croix Blanche Lakes. As part of my continued stocking policy it has been the practice to introduce young fish at this time of the year.
As autumn sets in a group from Holland visited the lakes and had a superb haul of carp, including 6 thirties and 3 forties. This clip shows Eric Dalenoord land a 16kg mirror.
A short video clip shot in 2008 & 2009 at the Etangs de la Croix Blanche in Northern France. We see several nice fish banked, including a big grass carp.
A video from Google Earth showing the Croix Blanche lakes from the air. An unusual view of the venue but one giving a good idea of the layout.
