Very good for the money real nice place
Absolute shit hole, facilities nil, over price , over fished & under stocked, avoid at all costs. They must pay matt Hayes a fortune to promote this load of rubbish!!
Been twice wiv a 2 of us then 5 wiv total of 6 days and only 1 fish came out. overpriced by far. both times only seen 2 fish out buy other anglers never again shall I go shame really coz the place is perfect settings
Hard to fish but if you know your stuff you'll be fine beautiful complex il be there all year :)
Absolute crap went for three days caught nothing there was people who had been there for two weeks with no fish and complaints off gear theft so avoid expensive peice off poo
Got to train hear for the junior carp champs anyone got any good tips
Great complex, Read the other reviews and laughed! How can you call the venue crap if you didn't catch! Prices are the same as any other venue for a 24hr ticket! Facility's are good, there are showers, fresh drinking water, porta Loos dotted about the lakes, plenty of parking, local takeaways deliver to your lake and the gates get locked of an evening with security through the night.
The people who have left rubbish reviews are obviously fisherman ( probably used to waters where you throw in and catch ) but I'd say very inexperienced. You only get out what you put in though. I've done at least 30 nights over the last 3 years on St Johns, blanked many a time but had a few great sessions. Best to date was 72 hrs fishing, 9 runs, missed 1, lost 2, banked 6, biggest 28.5 and only 1 under 20 !
I love this place but you need to do your homework, it has some fantastic fish, the bailiffs are great, security Is so much better now too. Where can you go to a day ticket water with 5 different 40's in and expect to catch straight away, nowhere.....
Love the place... Worth the 2-3 hr drive from Manchester...
First time up there on a 3) hour sesh ! On11th November had first frost 2days b4 hand had a go on st jon's an b1 went with 4 kg of mags . Blank't ! But going bk 2nd of next month . Ps I don't do 3rd time lucky 🙏💪🎣also sort the rubbish out arounnd the place ! dirty lazy old tosspots
Weed everywhere! Did loads of work with a marker float and eventually found some silt! Two days with the night between and didn't see a fish out anywhere! Tried bottom, zig and chod set up. I think you would have to be very experienced to catch here as they must be so pressured. We went when it was wet and windy in the week and it was still full. Will try again some day!
Fished oxlease had 12 fish biggist 26lb brilliant place to fish was top rod for the weekend and was nice of Roy parsons to tell me that :) can't wait to go back!!
You can keep your specimen hunting, had a glorious day on the Hunts Corner Pond for their Tench. Very secluded, peaceful, beautiful countryside. Couldn't ask for much more. Perfect for introducing newbies to the sport.
Cracking place the people who are moaning about blanking are just not good anglers first visit had a 38.9 mirror lots of fish in every lake and you won't catch better looking fish anywhere
This place is a pb smasher
Don't be shy to keep spodding
Brilliant place 2 spend a few nights
