Brief details of your catches
The carps were not really active, maybe because of the hot water. In contrast catfish were eating anything thrown at them. The largest one I caught was 63 lbs. I also lost other big ones.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Tigernuts provided action, so did boilies but I opted not to use the latter after a few days because the catfish were all over them. I also caught tench on floating dog biscuits.

Cosy lake. Comfortable pegs. Intriguing prospects. Super service from the owner. The lake is located in the middle of nowhere. Be prepared for the catfish.

Brief details of your catches
2 mirrors, 18lb and 24lb 2 cats, 30lb and 66lb Plenty crucians around 5lb Plenty breem to 8lb
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Tried as recommended by gareth small qtys of particles and fake corn as had been working well previously, previously being the word. What works one week not neccesarily going to work the following so decided to pile a few boilies in which resulted in the 2 cats plus lost one. Couldn't fail with the method feeder, clip up and get it on the same spot every 5-10mins and you should have a field day
Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, nice clean hot showers, sink to wash pots n pans etc, plenty sockets for charging stuff up, pegs had plenty room and pretty flat

Beautiful lake and nice complex, all you need for drive n survive. Gareth was there to welcome and discuss peg and tactics dependant on what you were targeting. Carp weren't really playing the game, only had two @ 18lb and 24lb, both mint. Lost count of quality crucians and breem on the method feeder during the days, topped the week off with a 66lb cat

owner was there to meet us on arrival (Gareth) he gave us a tour of the lake and facilities pointing out the best areas to fish . site was clean and litter free the lake had quite a bit of weed which was a bit of a challenge a dinghy was available to use but was not the best one life jacket.large population of catfish . maximum of three rods plus a coarse fishing rod . the coarse fish were in exceptional condition.
