Over the last few years it has really become noticable that bait application has a big impact on the fish, their behaviour and how the lake fishes. An ever increasing input from the angler gives the fish lots of choice and different nutrition but there is a different angle to consider. Too much bait eventually leads to the fish picking and choosing when and where they feed, and they will obviously avoid the areas where there is the slightest sign of danger, a line, rig or even a fresh bed of bait can be enough to send the fish elsewhere to feast on safer offerings. An accumulation of heavy baiting can be very detrimental to both the fish and the fishing, leaving anglers scratching their heads wondering why they are not getting any action! Its simple, the fish sometimes have too much choice and have eaten too much bait. If you are the unfortunate angler that happens to drop on after someone has thrown in 20kg or so in your swim then it speaks for itself, you will probably struggle.
Juvigny and Vraux have a 20kg per person total bait limit. In certain circumstances when the fish are clearly competitively feeding and multiple catches are on the agenda more bait will be permitted. Anyone seen to be dissregarding the bait limit will be asked to leave! All serious anglers will understand this decision is aimed at everybodys good interest and I am sure will lead to more productive fishing throughout the season.
