Coarse Fishing

The lake is one acre in size, and has 21 pegs which are either slabbed or mown grass.
The lake was built in 2000, and has a depth of 3-5 feet, and there are several deeper holes, which will hold the fish in colder weather.

Tips from Experience:

During the winter months, scale down to thinner diameter line, smaller hooks, and also feed sparingly. The carp in the lake will still feed in the colder weather, and all baits will work, though you may have to wait a little longer for bites. When hooked, the fish put a good fight, especially when using lighter tackle.

 The fish have lots of natural feed available, and are putting on weight and size since being introduced to the lake.

Pellet, meat and corn also work well, and can often `catch` the bigger fish.

Best method is to fish a small feeder to the island with a hook length of 9” - 12”, or by fishing at 1”-2” over depth when fishing with a float rod or pole.
