Specimen Carp Lake

Exclusively a Day Ticket Water

The 3 acre specimen carp lake at the furthest end of the site has mature trees and shrubs well landscaped around its perimeter providing a peaceful and secluded venue for the serious carp angler. Approximately 15 pegs are well-spaced around the lake. It is stocked with a good head of carp with the record for 2019 being a 29lb 6oz Mirror carp. Good fighting fish they can regularly be seen shoaling in summer months tantalising the angler!

Most anglers fish with two rods on this lake, one rod in the margin (deep) and one rod close to the island using pellet, corn, meat or Boilies. Hampton Springs feeding pellets can also be useful as can pva bags.

This lake has been developed and improved gradually over the years and is becoming a very popular venue for carp anglers


Handy Tips

  • Feed little and often
  • Fish margins – tight as you can
  • Fish to island and lily beds but don’t rule out open water
  • Scale down tackle
  • 6mm cubed meat
  • Sweetcorn in margins
  • Winter fishing – maggots, castors and worms (pinkies)
