What size do the fish go to?

Pike and carp go up to 20 lbs..

What tactics work well?

When feeder fishing or legering, before winding in to bait up again, it is wise to give the bait a little twitch.

If there is a fish nearby,the sudden movement may be enough to encourage it to take the bait.

Sometimes there may even be a fish mouthing the bait and that little twitch just helps to set the hook.

What facilities are on site?

Facilities include parking, a village shop and a pub.

Is parking available?

Parking is available at Hunston bend where about 20 cars can fit.
