LAKE 3 – COARSE

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

(1.6 ACRES)

“Carp are the dom­i­nant species in here. They av­er­age 4lb-6lb, with the odd low dou­ble – much smaller than in the other two lakes. There is a good head of tench and bream in here av­er­ag­ing 3lb, with the odd larger spec­i­men of both species ap­proach­ing 8lb. Some an­glers do well on a Method feeder to the is­land, but pole an­glers tend to fare best.

“I have one reg­u­lar who of­ten catches 40 tench, 20 carp and a dozen bream in a sin­gle ses­sion on the pole – you can’t beat the ac­cu­racy. How­ever, I grew up with Mr Crab­tree, and my tra­di­tional method of a wag­gler in the mar­gins also scores well.

“For any young­sters fish­ing the lake I’d al­ways ad­vise them to start on mag­gots, which will keep them busy with plenty of roach, rudd, and perch. A bet­ter qual­ity stamp of fish will fall to corn, worm or pel­let. The perch in this lake are re­ported to run to over 3lb. This is my favourite lake on the com­plex.”
