The lake just oozed carp and plenty of rod bending action, not to mention the stamp of fish are some of the most stunning looking carp we had ever set eyes on.
LA GOMERA is located on a tiny island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean just a short 40 minutes ferry crossing from the popular holiday destination of Tenerife. The lake is set 2000 meters above sea level in the mountains. and has been visited by the likes of Danny Fairbrass from Korda and Kevin Nash and Alan Blair of Nash tackle This destination is for the true carp globe trotter due to its wild nature. The carp in this wild Jurassic venue are truly something of the past, and are absolute crackers as you can see from the photos, after meeting with the guys that was dealing with the lake and its fishing rights it was safe to say it ticked all the boxes to add the second part of the puzzle to the Carpers Paradise Brand.
As for the third Venue this a 260-acre lake based in Slovenia part off the Eastern European Carp circuit, a un heard of monster carp water is one way to describe this stunning venue With incredible stocks and picturesque views that’s surrounded by green, green and more green with its abundance of pine trees and Slovenian style log cabins in the distance that can be seen whilst you relax and catch carp on your holiday in the beauty and peace we have created.
Lake Chira was our first venue we set up and made our mark with our 5 star service with 3 star prices after experiencing hands on that previous company’s operating on the venue where not doing it to its full potential and to a high standard meeting anglers at carp shows and listening to there horror story’s we decided to set our standards high from the off, and make sure we wasn’t like the previous company’s. Carpers Paradise Gran Canaria has helped us develop to what we are as a company today.
Ideally we didn’t want to stop at Gran Canaria, but we knew it was going to be a lot of man hours traveling the European circuit in search of other venues that we would fit under the Carpers Paradise name, so after viewing and testing many lakes in France and around Europe as we was always looking for that something different to create an anglers dream holiday.
Krisjian assured us we wont be disappointed after getting permission to be allowed to fish this once private harvesting lake. The excitement and adrenaline that we both felt was pumping to say the least, as we had heard it was full of big fish but with no real knowledge on the way to approach the water we opted to go for our normal European tactics, with big beds of bait being our feature as these are hungry wild carp. After our first fishing experience we was far from disappointed as we landed numerous fish with a very good head of them being 40lb+ commons with the biggest going over 50lb and that was only in a few days fishing. We can only describe these fish as immaculate pristine fish with the lake holding some absolute monsters up to 78lb+ so far.
A 3 acre past irrigation pond set in Mountnessing Brentwood Essex Clearwater is a 30 Man Private syndicate with 10 swims. The fish stock is around 120 carp that range from double figures to 41lb 6 other species that are present include Rudd to 2lb crucians 2lb perch 5lb Tench 6lb giving you something to angle for whilst waiting for the carp rods to spring into life the depths range from 4ft to a mind blowing 30ft in certain areas, although the lake might seem easy due to its size believe us it’s a tricky little water that once you get your teeth stuck in the rewards are certainly there.

When we took the lake over the original stock was kind of unknown and all we do know is it had 40/50 carp introduced in 1983. With this in mind it also has never been a fishery and was used as a playground if you like for the owners upbringing. Since then we have stocked around a 120 carp from low 20s to low 40s and every single one being hand picked, so you can rest assure that each and every one is an absolute cracker. The lake depths average 6/8ft and in the main body of water going down to a nice 12ft with shallows around the island being 4/5ft, other species present also include roach, perch,pike and small amount of Tench.
