    Have a super time, we recently spent eight weeks out there, if you do get the opportunity before you get to La Rochelle visit the southern corner of Brittany or if like us La Rochelle is not altogether your cup of tea come back that way, the Gulf of Morbiham is so pretty .OOOPs many love La Rochelle and I trust you will also.

    We set La Rochelle as a target but didnt get there. The closest we got was St Michels Mount.

    We were to busy having a good time around Brittany. Anyhow have a ball.

    Well bigfish HAVE GREAT HOLIDAY I KNOW YOU WILL ENJOY YOURSELF.....but I am afraid I am with Alan on La Rochelle........... me and the wife find La Rochelle very disappointing and we would always bypass it....(If you are a biker, I know lots British bikers "Harley D" go there every year as with many other bikers) every body knows La Rochelle..... there are better above and below...but you must go for yourself as we all are different..likes & dislikes...southern Brittany is lovely.
    One nice Aire is Brambles just about 2 to 3 miles north of Piriac Sur Mer on the coast road
    N47'23.788' W002'30.784' Just a taster what it looks like.....

    If your MHF name is anything to go by....BIGFISH...take a look at one of the photos a Bass just on the beach across the road

    Safe Journey

    well BIGFISH.... I have even given you some inside informatiom showing you the lure it was caught on......with large float to keep it out of the rocks below...cast...retrieve....cast...retrieve cast ...retreive ...was the method.

    the lure was 6" long so take a guess how long was the fish
