Sunset Lake is our 15 peg match lake. We could have crammed a lot more platforms on this 1.5 acre lake, but instead we have tried to maximise the space for each angler and make the whole lake as fair as possible. The lake was stocked with carp averaging 1-3lbs earlier this year, along with lots of small tench.
Sunset is currently one of the more challenging lakes on the site, mainly because of its slightly lower stocking density. However, the extra room means these fish are growing fast, and at the start of the winter we will be removing the biggest fish and rehoming them to Raven, our carp lake. We will then replace these fish lots of smaller carp and some silvers, which are again being supplied by AE Fisheries.
Sunset is available on a day ticket like all our other lakes. But we will also be running open matches on the lake, as well as allowing groups of anglers to book pegs for their own competitions. Along with our fishery landing nets and unhooking mats, we will also provide match anglers with our own top quality Preston Innovations keepnets, so there is no need to bring your own.
Lots of methods will work on Sunset. There is plenty of open water to fish a feeder or waggler, and test sessions have shown us that the fish will also come right into the margins to feed… they can be caught in 12 inches of water right next to the reeds, especially later on in the day.
A top tip is to keep feeding several areas of your peg and move between them to keep the bites coming
