1 Week ago I had spent a few days in Paris (lovely city btw) and of course, I went to DPSG and bought some "souvenirs" (mainly large and heavy SP's intended for big seabass and meagre fishing).

I bought a couple of Picol'Eaus and gave them a go a few days ago.
Loved the red one for stained waters, and here's the result of the little test (I rigged it with a 15 gram Storm Lip Weight).

The bass inhaled the SP on the fall, I felt a light bump and set the hook hard, the BPS Bionic Blade MH rod as a very fast action, great for hard hook ups.
The reel is a old and outdated Daiwa Emblem S 2500, but hell, I just love fishing with it, it's drag it's kind of a random thing, you never know when it will work right.

Cheers!

I love the look of the Delalande Picol'Eau, but have had a lot of trouble sourcing it cost effectively. My search goes on !!


Nice to see you putting it to good use though !!

Great photo's Pedro.... They are great looking lures, have you tried them with their own articulated heads? They have a fantastic action..

Not cheap are they....but what the hell...you'd only spend it on a rod or reel....:muttley::muttley:

Delalande Monture Picoleau
180mm - 17gm
This French designed ready rigged soft plastic sandeel starts working as soon as it hits the water. The leadhead takes it down through the water but as soon as you retrieve the reversed lip will raise it up towards the surface.
Just vary the retrieve and you can make the lure behave in some amazing ways.

As described by www.veals.co.uk/acatalog/Lures.html hope this helps your search £7.99
