On many commercials moving from lake to lake can be rather repetitive with similar catches to the other pools on site but at Sherwood where every lake offers a new experience, this couldn’t be further from the truth meaning you’ll never tire from visiting it’s scenic banks.
Holmedale Lake (56 pegs) is the venues bagging water where carp nets well over 100lb of fish over 10lb feature. The lake contains plenty of small islands which can be targeted using a feeder but you can also fish the margins so most methods will catch fish.
On Sherwood Lake (64 pegs), the pegs in the mid-forties are the hotspots where you can land carp to double-figures. For a net of silverfish including ide, setup on any peg and fish maggot or caster both shallow and on the deck using the long pole on most pegs.
Cavendish Lake is another great silverfish water where pole and pellet short will see a mixed net of over 50lb caught. The lake contains loads of different species though, even gudgeon.
TIP: Ide can be very shy biting species so use a very light float such as a 4x10 Preston Chianti.
