Westbourne House Lake Syndicate Future Fisheries in West Sussex
This lake has superb water quality and the ideal rich and varied aquatic habitat to produce very large specimen coarse fish including Carp. Its terrestrial surroundings are very young but attractive and the pit also has an underwater topography that will prove a very interesting challenge for any angler. The lake had been left untouched over many years and has only been irregularly fished for one year (2009) by a smaller syndicate. During that year it was discovered that there were approximately 15 – 20 resident Carp some of which were over 30 with 3 or 4 forties also present.
Since we have taken over the water we have removed forests of snags, constructed vehicle access, safe car parking and comfortable swims in 17 great locations around the lake which provides plenty of water for each angler.
The WHL syndicate has produced personal best Carp weights for many of our members with everyone enjoying the carp we have stocked from our fish farm which are growing spectacularly. There have been a number of different 40’s caught (set to increase again this year) with other fish speeding up behind. The lake record stands at 58Ibs 12ozs, the beautiful ‘Two Tone’, the amazing ‘Big Scaly’ comes close behind with its best weight being just over 50Ibs, and one of our stocked Italians at also just over 50Ib. Close behind are other stocked fish Cluster at 45.12 and a new 40 plus Common at 42Ibs. The 59 stock fish we introduced late winter 2010 up to 22lb have grown incredibly with an estimated 95% now weighing 30lb+. 44 more carp were stocked into the lake in season 2, 25 in November 2010 and 19 in March 2011. We added another 20 top quality Italian strain Mirrors during December 2011, and a further 33 Mirrors and 9 Commons in January 2013 and a further 50 Leney Dinks in March 2014. Finally we have added our Sutton Dink strain of Carp to the equation taking our stock levels to around the 300 mark (10 carp per acre). The Sutton Dinks have been introduced mainly between 6-9Ibs in 2016 and 2017 and are on the same trajectory as the earlier stocked Leney Dinks being caught already between 17-25Ibs. These subsequent stockings, which averaged at 7Ibs 8ozs at the time of stocking, are now passing the upper twenties barrier and are regularly being caught in the low to upper 30’s.
