FOUR DAY-TICKET CARP VENUES TO TRY

Angling Times (UK) - - MIDLANDS -

BADEN HALL FISH­ERY, STAFFORD, STAFFS

The plea­sure-fish­ing-only Mid­dle Pool of­fers 68 pegs of carp av­er­ag­ing around 12lb, with the odd larger lump. You can night fish this lake, as well as sur­face fish it in the sum­mer. Con­tact: 01785 850313 Post­code: ST21 6LG

BARSTON LAKES, SOLIHULL, W MIDS

Barston Lakes is renowned for its lumps, with fish to well over 20lb com­mon­place. The wa­ter deep­ens un­der­neath the elec­tric­ity wires from around 7ft to 15ft, so these can be good pegs in the cold if the fish are search­ing for some depth. Oth­er­wise, try catch­ing on the drop, or in the mar­gins. Con­tact: 01675 444890 Post­code: B92 0LB

COBBLEACRE LAKES, HEVINGHAM, NOR­FOLK

Adams Lake is a match venue which is full of dou­ble-fig­ure carp that are rel­a­tively easy to catch. The lake is roughly three acres in area, with depths rang­ing be­tween 3ft and 7ft. Con­tact: 01603 754305 Post­code: NR10 5NL

STANWICK LAKES, STANWICK, NORTHANTS

The three-acre, 30-peg Swan Lake used to be solely a match fish­ing venue, but the carp have now grown on and are seen as worth­while tar­gets by vis­it­ing plea­sure an­glers or even those try­ing for a per­sonal best. The av­er­age size is now be­tween 8lb and 16lb, al­though some mid-twen­ties have been caught and there is at least one known 30-pounder. There is a car park, con­ve­niently lo­cated next to the lake, so you can drive right up to your peg to un­load your kit. Con­tact: 07974 300015 Post­code: NN9 6QZ
