Overnight Lake in Leicestershire area


Recommended Posts

Morning all,

 

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good overnight lake with big carp in the Leicestershire area.

 

I was planning a trip to Makins but wanted to see if there were any more scenic or fun lakes that I'm unaware of.

 

Cheers,

 

Tom

Leics is poor for big carp imo mate.

Head half an hour South to Northants and there's loads of places. Stanwick Lakes is a good starting point.

While Makins does hold big carp it's actually a match venue. Far removed from what most would consider a typical carp water.

Thanks mate.

 

I've had a look at Stanwick and the bigger lake with decent sized fish is fully booked this Saturday. Do you have any other recommendations within a 30 - 45 minutes drive of LE65?

That's Elsons. The one next to it, Mallard, doesn't take bookings, open to all and holds fish to 35+.
