I would still be interested in knowing more about the cray situation at this place.

Anyone fished it recently?

Cheers

Anyone got any up to date info on this place? Are the crays still abundant??

Any recent info greatly received.

Cheers

fished the "front lake" for the first time a couple of weeks ago. just done a 24hr session, had one at around 11-12lb and lost another which felt a bit better. crays do tweak the alarms fairly often but both runs came to hardened hookbaits tipped with plastic corn and an extender-stop. fished over particle spod-mix wouldnt bother with pellet or boilie whatsoever as it just attracts more crays

I like the look of this place and it seems to have a lot going for it, BUT when you talk to the anglers they all moan about the crays and lack of carp (due to the crays???) and many of the first timers said that they will not be going back. I walk around the lakes quite often but I have never seen a carp on the bank (have seen plenty topping)all I have heard is rumours of atleast 1 or 2 30's in each water. If it wasn't for the crays I would love to give it a go but as my fishing time is limited I would rather go some where (and in Norfolk there is plenty of lakes) where I feel I would not be wasting my time and don't need the hassle of crays.

Lack of catch info online is a bit of a worry ....Has anyone caught from here or aware of stock levels?

If you pop onto the bait section , there's a thread running at the moment on using flavoured wooden balls to defeat ronnie and reggie. Invaluable advice from Uncle Ken. I'd defo have a read.

Did you have any luck? Do you fish there much? Do you know what the stock levels are like?

I just wrapped the hook bait in shrink wrap and also used fake corn and kept re-casting every 1.5hours during the day to check the bait.
There are lots of ways to get round the crays.
Have a general search

Guessing it ruined your session or were you able to overcome them?

There are literally thousands of crays in most of the lakes, some monsters too.
Put a little bait close in the margins and have a look at night, I couldn't believe how many there was.
The bayliff came round and we said about it so he opened up the back of his jeep to show us a create full of crays he just caught from the traps.
He also said he has removed about 5thousand a month ago but that made little impact.
