The Big Pit

This lake was originally two lakes that were joined together to form one large and very complex lake. The original lakes were The Old Canal and the Old Pit Lake. The lake holds a stunning range of fish and has many features that make it a pleasure to fish.

It is called the Big Pit for a very good reason, for at one end (inlet side) the depth of water reaches 18ft and at the shallow end (outlet side) it is about 8ft. The bottom is mainly a silty bottom with the base of the lake being peat and clay.

This large and in places very deep lake not only caters to the casual angler but also to the match and more serious angler. The lake boasts carp to 28lb and large Tench, Perch and dinner sized plates of Bream with multiple islands and features so it works well fishing everything from the pole for the smaller fish to using ledger and feeder tactics to using boilies and same principles as the Specimen Lake.

The lakes at White Springs provide an experience for every type of angler, the majority of swims are all accessible via gravel paths with gravel purpose built swims and car parking directly next to the swim.

The Old Pit

This was a challenging 12 Peg lake with space for up to 14 anglers and was opened in early spring 2004 and originally stretched over an area of about 3/4 of an acre of land. From peak to peak at its widest parts it is 64.25 metres (210.78 feet) by 58.27 metres (191.18 feet)

It was called the Pit for a very good reason, for at one end (inlet side) the depth of water reaches 18ft and at the shallow end (outlet side) it is about 8ft. The bottom is mainly a silty bottom with the base of the lake being peat and clay and the original lake had three islands which are surrounded by shallower water with depths of 3 to 4 feet surrounding the islands and distances to the bank from the island pegs of between 15 metres (51.28 feet) and 20 metres (65 feet) depending on the peg. It has many runways and features for the fish and is stocked with Carp up to 28lb+, Tench to 6lb+, Perch to 4lb+, Roach to 1 1/2lb+ and Bream to 5lb+.

 

Such depths on such a lake can be very challenging to fisherman and it is this unique challenge that makes this lake very popular. Although it is primarily a pleasure lake to fish for the more advanced angler, the regular carpers to the Specimen Lake rate the Pit as being as much of a challenging lake to fish as the Specimen lake itself.

 Because of its depth ledgering and method feeding prove very popular techniques with most types of bait working well on its day.
