About

Oak is our intermediate carp lake. By this we mean it’s great for those anglers that want to have a good chance of getting a bite or two. The lake is just over an acre with fishing all from one bank.

The pegs are split up by underwater raised clay bars which are a great feature. The stock of carp currently sits at around 75 with them ranging from 10-20lbs.

As always the fish are lovely and clean with some older originals that were moved out of our specimen lake Station. To compliment them we have stocked some young stockies that will pile the weight on! The lake is kept clean and tidy with chipped pegs.

We recommend using our house pellets, maize, corn and boilie, all of which you can get from the Tackle Shop upon arrival.
