Lakeside Park Drive, Reydon, IP18 6, Suffolk, United Kingdom
Reydon Pit 1 is the largest water available to members of the Southwold and District Fishing Association. It has 29 pegs, and there are some fantastic features in this pit that make it an all-around lake.
This is a mixed fishery with reed beds around the margins that hold plenty of fish species. There are also shallow bays, gravel beds and lily pads that are home to plenty of fish, but the larger carp love to hang around in these areas.
What size do the fish go to?
There are carp up to 24lbs, bream to a massive 15lbs, tench to 7lbs, Crucian to 2.5lbs, chub to 3lbs and a good head of perch, roach and rudd.
What tactics work well?
This pit is 14ft at its deepest, but the margins are 2-4ft in certain places. For the bigger carp, it is best to find a gravel bar out in the middle of the pit (where it is deepest). A good bed of bait and some precise bottom baits should see you catch one of the big ones. For the larger tench and bream, the lily pads and reed beds are an ideal target. Close or open feeders are a solid choice with maggots or corn, depending on the species you’re aiming for.
What facilities are on site?
There is a unisex toilet on site. There are also several pegs for disabled anglers at the lake, with pegs 1 and 2 always reserved for disabled anglers.
Is parking available?
Parking is available, and anglers must ensure the gate is locked when entering the car park.
