Le Grand Pierre is a 24 acre water securely gated near the small town of Neuves-Maisons close to the River Moselle.  There are 20 swims for a maximum of 12 anglers and all easily accesible by your vehicle. Arrive 2 pm Saturday, Leave 12 noon the following Saturday.

The whole lake is pretty uniform in depth and this being around 9 to 10 ft obviously depending upon the water level at the time. This naturally shallows up close to the island margins. There are tall reed beds around the lake and the margins drop off immediately, some swims there is 6 ft of water right at the side of the reeds so don’t ignore the immediate margin. A few mussel beds can be found but in general it is a pretty clean flat bottom. The areas the carp have fed in recently will feel slightly firmer. There is no weed to contend with, just little bits on the marginal shelf.

With so little feature it puts everyone fishing in with an equal chance and the more on there, the more the fish will move around expending energy and feeding more so a good quality boilie will definitely score here with less effort for maximum gain.

You are free to totally self-cater and cook on the bank if you wish, but Daniel’s food package is worth serious consideration for anyone wanting treating, you will definitely not go hungry.

Breakfast is served fresh from around his kitchen where there is a large seating area with a tremendous view of the lake. Evening meals can be delivered to your swim should you not want to leave the bank.

From the man who made Etang de Pierre so special, comes his new water Le Grand Pierre. Lots of hard work by Daniel and his team has created a lake that they can be and are extremely proud of.  This is a true big carp venue with most of the weighing 35 lb plus and with carp to over 70 lb Le Grand Pierre seems to have landed on the big carp map screaming and shouting after opening its gates for the first time to paying guests in August 2018.

There is easy vehicle access all around the lake and as you would expect there’s a shower and toilet available, along with freezers for food and bait, fridges and plenty of sockets for recharging phones etc. There are also supermarkets within a few minutes of the lake.

Anglers have waited patiently for this incredible venue to be opened, but now that wait is over.
