Choose from two top pools

In­ti­mate fish­ery of­fers sport with carp large and small

Angling Times (UK) - - MIDLANDS -

WITH two pools, one of­fer­ing big carp and the other of­fer­ing mixed bags of fish, Whetstone Gorse is a great choice for plea­sure an­glers.

Tucked away amid the peace­ful rolling hills of the Le­ices­ter­shire coun­try­side, the fish­ery is large enough to ac­com­mo­date plenty of an­glers but in­ti­mate enough to make for a plea­sur­able ex­pe­ri­ence.

The mixed lake is oval in shape with a cen­tral is­land run­ning down the mid­dle at around 30m out.

The carp av­er­age 5lb here, with plenty of dou­bles and barbel and sil­ver­fish to add va­ri­ety. It’s a great pole or light feeder/bomb wa­ter where bags to 100lb can be taken.

As for the Carp Lake, fish to 15lb lurk in its depths but the main run of fish is 3lb-7lb.

This lake also has a cen­tral is­land which tends to hold fish. A ‘no boilies’ rule means pel­lets are one of the top baits here but it might be worth try­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent too. This is a great pool for en­joy­ing plenty of ac­tion.
