Our 5 Beautiful Lakes
25 pegs with many features.
Stocked with same mixture of fish as the main Match Lake. Carp to 13lb.
On 25th February 2010 we took delivery of 10,700 roach to 8 inches and crucians to 6 inches from Framlingham Fisheries in Suffolk. Just over 4,000 of these were introduced into the North Pool. Photos are in the gallery.
The banks of the North Pool are steep creating a good depth of water tight to the features.
This lake features the 'Hovis' pegs on the end of the peninsula where Aardman Animations filmed two adverts for Hovis bread in 2006. You can view the ads on YouTube by following these links: Hovis Cute & Hovis Teatime.
July 2011 - new pleasure bag record: Clive Hadley from Henley in Arden, Warwickshire, spent a week on our campsite and came with the aim of setting a new lake record. This he did in some style taking a fantastic 305lb bag in the course of one day! All the fish were taken close in on the “Hovis peg”, on banded pellet over a continual bed of 4mm feed. Congratulations to Clive - great photo of part of his catch on the photo gallery, click here.
22nd May 2010: Roy Salmon used bread at the far bank to take a magnificent 210.5lb from peg 8 which included carp to 9lb.
30th October 2009: The previous pleasure bag record on this lake was held by Scott Brown from Newport who fished peg 9 to take a super 178lb which included double-figured mirrors and commons, fantailed crucians and crucians to 1lb. He caught most of the fish on the inside-right margin again using a 14 hook and 5lb line but with an 18 elastic. He also used paste on the hook together with small pellets.
Before Keith, Roy Salmon (does this name sound familiar?!) held the pleasure bag record of 134lb on this lake. Roy fished with rod and line with a 12 hook, 3lb line with sweetcorn over meat and sweetcorn on the inside margins. He had mirrors to 4lb, commons to 3lb, crucians to 2.75lb, tench and roach in his bag. Roy's latest attempt in August 2008 only just failed to regain him the title: he managed a fantastic 151.75lb so only just missed out! His all-carp bag included commons to 9.5lb, mirrors to 5lb using bread over liquidised bread on the pole with a 12 hook, 3lb line, 16 elastic.
