New PB at New Forest Water Park


Recommended Posts

Last week a couple of mates and I had 48 hours at the New Forest Water Park. For those that don't know it, the lake is about 22 acres and about a third is sectioned off for water sports like wake boarding. The rest of the lake is a syndicate. Except for an island in the middle which can be hired out. So that is what we did.


There's not a massive amount of information online about the lake but one of the guys had fished it before and suggested how we should go about it. The island has a double swim and a single so we drew straws and got set up.


An hour in and John had already had 5 fish from the single swim. By nightfall I had 1 around 17lb, john was up to 30 fish! Another 6 fish overnight and seemingly endless liners meant no sleep but at 9am I was rewarded with a new PB at 22lb 2oz




That carp wasn't beaten but by the end of the 2 days we had collectively caught over 100 carp, mostly mid-high doubles. And a 34lb catfish. Great session :)
