Coarse Fishing Lake at West Pitt Farm Devon -
Mallard Coarse Fishing Lake -
At about one and quarter acres in size, Mallard Lake is the largest and most popular of the West Pitt lakes.
The predominant species is carp which run to 22lbs, with large numbers from 3lb-10lb. Catches of 180lbs and more are not unusual. Other species include tench to 5lbs, roach to 1lb 8oz and numerous rudd.
Mallard is shallow around the island at 2-3 feet deep. The lake slopes off to deeper water at the dam end near the outlet where 9-11 feet can be found.
The most popular techniques are pole, waggler and feeder including the “method”. Again, do not forget the margins and keep loose feeding accurate. Corn, meat, pellets and paste are all popular baits. Bread has proved effective both on or just below the surface or on the bottom.
The whole lake fishes well in the summer with the island and dam being popular, the deeper water near the outlet is favoured in winter when 70lb bags are not uncommon.
Willow Coarse Fishing Lake
Although only half an acre in size, Willow Lake should not be underestimated.
It holds carp to 15lbs, Tench to 7lbs, crucian carp, perch to 2lbs with plenty of smaller rudd and perch to keep the novice angler happy.
Average depth of 5ft
Waggler and pole are the favoured methods, using corn, pellet, meat and bread to target bags of tench and crucians. Select and feed two areas, one close in, the other further out. If you are catching tench and crucians and it goes quiet it probably means that a carp has moved in. If your tackle is robust enough carry on feeding and you are likely to catch it but it will probably weigh in excess of 5lbs, if not switch to your second line. Bags made up of a dozen crucians with a similar number of tench are not uncommon. Floating baits such as bread and mixers can be used to target the carp during the warmer months with the evenings being a favourite time to use this exciting method.
