Our Barbel are growing nicely  Local angler, Carl with one of our hard fighting Barbel.

Nineoaks has 3 Coarse lakes holding a mixed head of quality fish. In the autumn of 2011 a number of small barbel were stocked in the Main Pool. These have since grown well (see pictures above) and are providing some suprisingly good sport, even though they are not yet fully grown. Their power and speed is fabulous. They like a frozen mussel in the margins and Luncheon meat too; these the best baits fished on the bottom and accompanied with a method mix.

Best all-round Barbel baits are definitely maggots, cooked frozen mussel (NOT those found in jars with preservatives!!!) and Luncheon Meat. Attract them with micro-pellets by continuously feeding small amounts while fishing with a quality bait, not any old stale piece of meat.

During the summer months the best times are definitely early morning and from late afternoon (4pm which is when their dinner bell rings) and the Barbel will be on the lookout for food. They are also known to take bread off the surface, just like a Carp. Maggots while being an excellent bait will also provide Roach and non-carp species too. Method mixes fished with a preferred bait will provide some terrific sport. Dog food, Cat food and tinned "beef tongue" or the likes of Coshida Trout & Salmon Cat Food should produce some good fishing. However, the use of boilies and excessive amounts of ground bait going in are discouraged.

Our lakes:-

Main has an average depth of 4-5ft. There are plenty of trees, bushes and bays all around the lake that provide lots of features to fish in to and under. A good variety of Carp of all sizes with the biggest going into the mid-20's. Main also has some excellent Roach fishing, skimmers, Tench and Grass carp up to 14lb. Bream are reputed to be in to double figures with a large black specimen infrequently caught. Mainly Bream of around 3/4-1lb mark are caught on sweetcorn.>

House is about 10ft deep in the middle with the margins being about 4ft deep. Plenty of features and trees/bushes on 3 sides and a large lilly bed. House. like Main, has a good head of Carp plus Bream, excellent Roach, Tench and a couple of Grass Carp up to 10lb. Carp here go up to 18lb with an average of about 4lb. With its good depth, fishing on the bottom away from the banks generally with sweetcorn, good number of decent Bream are caught. Mainly around the 1-1 1/2lb mark. With a few bigger specimens and plenty of smaller ones to keep you busy.

Novices is between 6 and 8ft deep in the middle. Some tree cover and deep margins. Carp up to 4lb with plenty of 1/2lb'ers and good Roach to keep the novice, beginner or expert angler busy all day. there are a small number of skimmer Bream in this pool. To one side of the Lake there is a thick hedge providing plenty of cover when it's windy.
