Cooper’s Pool – Tench Fishing – Sunset Lakes Isle Of Man

Cooper’s Pool is an 8 peg lake that contains only tench which currently average around 1.5lbs, although there are a few specimens that are considerably bigger than this. During our test sessions, we have managed nets of 30lb+ in less than two hours!

The lily pads which run up the middle of the lake are an obvious feature to target, but there are just as many fish close in. Maggots, corn and pellets will all get you plenty of bites, and a good little tip is to feed a small ball of groundbait after every couple of fish, rather than piling in lots of bait at once.
