South Bag-up wa­ters and more

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

THIS venue on the South Downs has three lakes on site.

The snake-shaped, 68-peg Match Lake has swims spaced a min­i­mum of 15m apart and gives year-round sport with com­mons and mir­rors to 10lb, bream to 6lb, tench to 5lb, roach, chub and perch.

It is 6ft at is deep­est and the bot­tom is shelved to en­able pole and wag­gler fish­ing as well as leg­ering. From most pegs you can reach the far bank with a 14m pole, but the big­ger carp tend to be caught along the near bank on worm, lun­cheon meat or sweet­corn.

Caster or mag­got over to the far side works well for the carp and tench, while the bream can of­ten be found out in the mid­dle of the lake and re­spond well to ground­bait tac­tics.

The five-acre Day Ticket Lake has been de­signed to elim­i­nate hot spots so that all an­glers have an equal chance of catch­ing.

Pamela’s Lake, the new­est on the com­plex, is ideal for be­gin­ners and ex­pe­ri­enced an­glers alike. There are 21 pegs to fish from and it is mainly stocked with carp rang­ing from 1lb 8oz to 12lb, from which you can get bites on even the cold­est of days.
