The two main lakes closest to the car park hold the biggest fish with Carp to over 30lbs having been caught. A 20lb plus Carp is a real possibility but can prove hard to catch than you might imagine from such a small lake. You need to present your bait well with minimal resistance. Try to keep feed in a tight area and don’t be afraid to experiment with different hook baits. Hair rigged luncheon meet works well especially if a little extra flavour is added like curry powder.
Bax Farm Fishery has an on site tackle shop open 7 days a week. No need to worry if you run out of bait or have left something behind.
This smaller lake furthers from the car park offers good fishing on lighter gear. Worm or maggot fished on the inside line work particularly well.
