Lake 5 – Boat Lake

1 Acre Lake

Carp to 30lbs

3 Pegs

Catfish to 64lbs

This intimate 1 acre lake was formally part of the Specimen Carp lake.

It is now a separate lake with a stock of over 50 Carp ranging from 5lbs to 30lbs. The target species for most anglers though are the larger Wels Catfish with a dozen currently inhabiting the lake ranging from 32lbs to 64lbs! There are also a few Grass Carp to at least 25lbs. This lake is very challenging to fish but with some great rewards for experienced anglers.

The Boat Lake gets its name from the fact that a bait boat is a must to access all areas of the lake due to power lines restricting casting. However, approximately 70% of the water can be fished without using a bait boat.

This lake is an exclusive booking lake only, meaning that when you book it you have your own private lake for the period that you have booked. The lake is perfect for 1 or 2 anglers, but can accommodate 3 anglers in total.

Please note that it is 250 metre walk from the car park to this lake.
