We opted to move around and bait different areas of the lake fishing one swim at night and another in the day these tactics really worked for us. We caught all of our fish on the lake special boilies and another mix Dan rolled for us. Our top advice is to put in Loads Of Bait and rest the swims, we only used boilies as we thought using pellets etc would only bring in the big Rudd and Tench." Gary said " We had a great week on a beautiful lake very relaxing and the fishing was excellent. Facilities were also superb and I must say that we have fished many lakes over the years in France and the food here is the best ever! 10 out of 10 a must"

A big thankyou to yourself & Cheryl for looking after us agin this year...the chicken pie is still a firm favorite mate ! As ever the lake ,fishing and condition of the fish was fantastic although I think our session coinsided with the fish just about to start spawning so was a little harder than expected but equally as rewarding once we got a few on the bank ! I really appreciate you taking the time to pass on your lake knowlede to Bradley and that "top secret rig" which I think he may of perfected himself now looking forward to coming back next year and hopefully back amongst the 40's again like last time with my brace.

The week started with my rod being dragged in on the first night. Lucky took the boat out on the Sunday morning and managed to retrieve it. It was a bit of a strange week we only banked carp up to 26lbs its the first time we have visited and not caught carp over 30lbs. We did loose a fair number of big fish due to hook failure this is the strange part! We experienced hooks snapping and bending straight. (these were big brand hooks nash and korda) Not too sure what was going on as I use these hooks at home and have had no problem. We suffered 4 losses due to this on decent fish. They were fighting particularly hard with the colder water temps but still you don't expect this. One mid twenty common that was banked had also straighten another hook and we were lucky to land it. Had a few stunners though including some big plated mirrors and an offspring from the perfect linear at just over 20lbs. we have caught the perfect linear before and this little one is almost an exact replica stunning. Be back in April as my quest for the Black common goes on!

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Dan & Cheryl for their warm hospitality throughout the week I spent at Oakwood fisheries . I was immediately made to feel welcome and Dan was really helpful in tactics and bait to use . I soon had my first capture from one of the spots Dan had pointed out . I went on to capture a total of 22 fish up to 38lb with an additional six fish lost . The fish are stunning , in excellent condition and fight hard so be prepared ! ... Dan also supplies fresh quality bait at a very reasonable price ( I used it to great effect )... The facilities were excellent and very clean ... Cheryl's cooking was fabulous ! Highly recommended ( I guarantee you will not go hungry ) The lake is very picturesque with some great features to fish to , the pegs have plenty of room and are easily accessible . In summing up I had a fantastic week , the fishing exceeded all my expectations and more ! ... I will definitely be back in the future , my tip for catching !.. Listen to Dan's advice he knows his lake , his fish and how to catch them ! Thanks for everything .... Kind regards , Ciaron Jordan .

bottom baits tipped with small pop ups tight to the lily's. Lake special boilie worked the best by far I ended up leaving my cell boilies in the freezer to take home as they didn't really like them and ordered some more lake special which was rolled fresh, great service and got to see the boilie machine in operation.

Stunning lake with many features. The weather was very changable caught all our fish after the rain had stopped when they started showing again. To have the food package was the best decision i made. The quality of the bait available to purchase is also excellent and dan is very happy to share his knowlwdge of the lake to help improve your catch. We both broke our pb's and rob broke his by 21 lbs! I would definatly recommend the venue and would be happy to return.

As always a beautiful place to fish it was a bit colder than when I normally come and it was nice to see the lake looking different in her winter colours, despite the cooler temps I still managed to winkle some out showing me their lovely winter colours well worth the effort.

This venue has the potentially to be an extremely good venue, the fish were in cracking condition and large framed, so can well grow considerably bigger. Dan & Cheryl are both great people, happy to help. Worth trying Cheryl’s home cooking as well!

Not my usual style of fishing so it made a refreshing change to have a lake full of features. Food was excellent, home cooked means home cooked & very well too. Breakfast baguettes were awesome! Stay near your rods as all the takes were one-toners! I think the fish have been fed on steroids… They fight like demons and take off like trains as soon as they feel the hook!

20 fish ranging between 15lb and 33lb.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
With lots of features to fish up to this lake was productive from all areas. We found that the lily pads kept attracting the fish but fishing amongst them meant we were always close to the rods. We found that most fish were caught using the chod rig with either chilli chocolate or fruity trifle quest pop-ups.
