THE MOAT is a 60 peg canal type match/pleasure lake between 13m and 14.5m wide, containing a variety of species. Carp to double figures, barbel to 6lb as well as bream, tench, crucian carp, perch and roach are all present in large numbers.
Open matches are regularly held on the moat as well as the very popular Fish4 £5K+£5K competition, match weights regularly exceed 100lb with the match record standing at 230lb.
Pleasure anglers are able to park behind every one of the 60 pegs on the lake and with level access only have approximately 10mtrs to walk with their tackle making it ideal for anyone with mobility problems.
Pellet, luncheon meat, maggots and worms are amongst the best baits to use with a little and often feeding pattern usually being the best option. Pole is the dominant method but feeder can also produce great sport.
