Jolly Pad Lake

The Jolly Pads Lake is over 3-acres and we have set this lake up to be a bit more relaxing for the angler as a social lake and is the easiest on the complex, with 120+ weight gaining carp up to and above 55lb+ and a nice stock of hard fighting 20’s, a good head of 30’s and  40’s, to 50lb+ we also have Merve the sturgeon some nice koi and some big grass carp also upto and above the 55lb bracket.

Jolly pads is suitable for single anglers, small groups and families upto 4 anglers or as exclusive hire to come and chill and relax and have some fun for the week.

The lake is silty, hard and soft clay but also features a large plateaux with hard clay, stone, sand, gravel and also has a few lily beds depending on the time of year and also a few over hanging trees around the margins. We have two large double swims on one bank both made from bulky timbers and filled with different hardcore for good drainage and topped with soft gravel for your bivvies, so Jollys makes a great social lake, there are also some great stalking spots around the lake too if you want to go off and do something different. 

Nice beds of pellet and plenty of particle with a mix of chops & whole boilies work well either spombing or by using a bait boat.

On this lake there are 2 large double swims both built from bulky oak timbers and filled with layers of hardcore for great drainage and topped with a soft gravel to protect your bivvies and numerous grass areas to fish from should you wish to fish in the shallows or just a bit of stalking.

We like to restrict the lake to 4 anglers and is great for a social, small parties, groups, singles or on a exclusive booking for smaller parties but also for the family as there is plenty of land to one side for the kids to play around on and not disturb anyone on the other lakes.

The lake often produces good fish in the 30’s and 40’s bracket including some very big Grass Carp to 55lb and some stunning Koi to add to the mix.
