L'etang du Morinais is an ideal carp fishery if your preferred approach is float fishing the margins, free-lining, casting to bubblers, fishing floaters or snooping about looking & waiting for that opportunity. Or alternatively, not bothering to cast at all; finding a comfortable trunk to rest your back against, dipping your hat over your eyes & having a little snooze.
La Morinais does not claim to have several tons of pellet reliant carp crammed into a small surface area of water, where fish health issues remain a real risk. There are around 200 carp from double figures thru to mid fifties. The first thirty was landed in 2006, the first forty in 2007, with forties now being caught regularly. With the current stock density, in nine acres of water, with the existing growth rates, someone will land the first sixty within a few seasons. Small carp are taken out, grown on, a selected number of fish being returned every other winter, supplementing the stock at the bottom end. For the future, La Morinais is promising to be one of the best fisheries in Northwest France.
