    The Carnon Fishing Club hosts the "Comité des Pêcheurs Amateurs Granvillais",  from  Sept. 19th to 21st,  2014    

    Mauguio-Carnon on the Mediterranean and Granville on the English Channel : two cities with over 13,000 inhabitants, one and the other with a marina and a fishing club affiliated with the "Fédération Nationale des Pêcheurs Plaisanciers et Sportifs de France". 

    One of the Gulf of Lion with 50cm max drawdown and Tuna of legend, the other on the Mont-Saint-Michel with a record of more than 15 m during spring tides. What similarities and differences at the same time! 

    It was at the initiative of the presidents of the two clubs: Mr Naudet and Mr Mongin, 9 people from Granville, including a woman, came to discover the joy of fishing in Carnon. This is after some people  from Hérault have tasted the delights of the Bay of Saint Malo and Chausey islands during the National Congress of FNPPSF at Hauteville sur Mer in April 2014. 

    Four boats from Carnon Fishing Club embarked participants for two days of fishing in "no kill." 9 tunas in two days, including one larger than 1.50 m, were caught and released. A shark and two ray were added to this scoring. 

    The first night all participants came together to share a tuna, caught a few days earlier, during a meal and a dance party on a room the port of Carnon. The warm presence of representatives of the City of Mauguio Carnon was one of the highlight that evening, they welcomed the initiative and presented medals to visitors. 

    The second night the crews were able to close the event around a friendly buffet. The conclusion of these days belongs to a club member of Granville: "We cannot imagine better than what we had during these two days!".

    Carnon Fishing Club and Montpellier Hérault Rugby : team spirit  

    There are sports where success is, in its entirety, due to the value of the team and the teamwork. This is well-known in Rugby, where only the best teams can win relying certainly on talented personalities, but especially on a collective capacity to deliver. This is also the case of the less known big game fishing, where the man holding the rod will never catch the fish without the help of his two teammates: the liner and the skipper. This is the entire crew of the boat which win, or not ...

    Our region is well endowed with top teams in both sports.

    It is on this idea that the Carnon Fishing Club invited Montpellier Hérault Rugby players to share a tuna fishing trip, through our mutual friend Moktar Rezkallah rugby and fishing passionate, and through our president Jean-Luc NAUDET. 14 players were present and boarded seven boats for a sportive and fun day.

     The club has taken on its tuna quota, yet very limited, to allow MHR players to enjoy tasting this rare meal.

    Successful and full of memories day for CFC and MHR .
