Woodsetts Quarry Pond in England
The fishery is now CEFAS registered, and since 2012 some 300 carp have been introduced in line with a structured management plan. The introduction of the Horseshoe/Orchid and Farriers carp strain, along with further stock purchased from a former lake in Lincoln, (see our YouTube channel) will ensure a good future for the lake as the carp grow. Several of the new stock fish are heavily scaled mirrors and were introduced back in March 2012 at weights of 7lb to 10lb. Many of these carp are now into and over the 20lb mark. Several upper double carp were also stocked and the average size currently caught by anglers, is around the 20 to 23lb mark. The lake’s original stock, (some of which are thought to be over 30 years old), have also benefited from a regular food source and have shown healthy weight gains. It is now estimated that there about 60 carp over the 20lb mark, and a select few that are approaching or have gone through the 30lb barrier! The lake does hold a mystery common which is rarely sighted but is estimated to weigh in at around 35lb!
Woodsetts is a very old and mature Sand Extraction Pit that dates-back to the 1950s and has been fished by several well know carp anglers over the years. The lake itself offers some exceptional carp fishing and in particular present the dedicated carp angler with all manner of fishing situations. Although not rated as easy, it does offer an equal and fair challenge to all that fish it and will test even the seasoned carp angler! Both the bays as you enter the site are shallow and can become heavily weeded in the warmer months yet give a great opportunity to stalk fish at close quarters… right in the edge! The main part of the lake offers crystal clear water with depths from just a few feet, down to some 26ft along the quarry wall, allowing the carp plenty of areas to disappear into and reside in.
The fishery is open from (7am Summer to 6pm) and (7am Winter to 4pm) for day ticket fishing for all species except pike (see pike rules). Day ticket anglers must book in using the telephone number given on this website the day before they wish to fish, tickets can be purchased using Paypal. There is a gate at the main entrance that is opened and locked in accordance with fishing times.
