Description

Bax farm fishery is in Tonge in the Garden of England, namely Kent, and consists of 4 lakes and a small river all set in a peaceful country farm estate. The lakes hold a good head of carp and for the real carp fisherman there is the speciman lake where you will get carp up to 30lb. The other lakes all hold carp up to 10lb so these can be a great starting point for anyone wanting to try their hand at carp fishing.

Good spread of lakes ranging from beginner to specimen. The "pan" lake is always good for a day session, plenty of 5-10lb carp in there and a few decent tench; and there's a handful of double figures in there too. The specimen can be tough to fish but the rewards are worth it, there's plenty of island features to fish to, but open water seems to be the where the biggies spend most of their time. Bottom baits are the best bet, not seen much come off the top even though the do come up in the early evening chasing insects. All the bottoms are clay or silt. Can get very busy at weekends. I've never fished the river section but plenty of people go there regularly.

Forgot to mention that the tackle shop is well worth a visit and all the guys that work there are full of advice. They'll do you a good deal on some larger items (bivvies, nets etc) if you shop there often enough. Their bacon butties are amazing too, never tried the rest of the menu though.

Try the stream for some superb tench fishing, shame they took all the bigger carp out though.

Tips

Pan Lake - Soaked 2mm fishmeal pellets on a method feeder with a 8mm fishmeal pellet on the hook. I've hit over 20 carp on a day session with a few tench thrown in as well. Margins do really well. Specimen - Bottom baits or pop-ups on a very short rig only. Never seen anything come out on the top or a zig. Cell boilies have been getting results as well as plain luncheon meat.

Float fish sweetcorn on the stream for tench, luncheon meat can be good to.
