What we'll do

Have you ever thought of associating fishing with technology? If not then you should know that it can help you catch big fishes. Also if you are unfamiliar with this modern fishing experience, Bertrand Masse is there to help you. Join him on his aluminum boat for an exhilarating trip where together you will track his favorite predator: the pike!

But you can catch other fishes such as perch and zander. On this trip, the guide will show how to use a sounder to grab big fishes of an average size of 80 cm and to sail with an electric motor GPS. Moreover, Bertrand can help you improve in different fishing techniques: cast-fishing, big bait fishing, etc.

Even expert fishermen improve their accuracy and understanding of the environment during this trip. As Bertrand also introduces children to lure fishing, so why not bring them along for a family outdoor activity?

Where we'll go

Bertrand will welcome you in the Marne department in France, a region known for its beautiful landscapes, champagne, numerous lakes, and rivers. For this trip, you will exclusively fish on the several lakes at your disposal. So your fishing session will depend on the weather but also on your wishes.

Among others, you can choose between the ‘Lac Du Der’, the ‘Lac de la Forêt d’Orient’, the ‘Lac de la Liez’, the ‘Lac de Charmes’ and the ‘Lac de la Mouche’. The Lac Du Der is the largest lake of France (48km²).

This artificial lake is ideal for fishing because it harbors many fish species. Since the water of the Lac de la Forêt d’Orient is crystal clear it makes the fishing session more interesting. The 3 other lakes are located in the center of a natural park and are home to pike, perch, zander, and sheatfish.
