I don't know which lake was which mate - and to be honest did'nt have much of a look, I was more concerned at the time with its location.

When I go to Lowestoft, I go A14 to Bury St Eds, A143 to Beccles, and then A146 to Lowestoft. Anything along the way that I can find and fancy having a go at I will.

Re: Waveney Valley Lakes - I just drove along (from Lowestoft) and saw the signs to Wortwell on the left and doubled back through I think it was Redenhall(??) and from the village the Compex was on the right. There looked to be about 6 to 8 lakes, but I couldn't be sure - some were skirted by caravans, and one or two bungalows/lodges. I did'nt hang about I wanted to get home.

What I would be interested to know are favoured methods and on which lakes(s)? Which baits are working well? Which are predominantly carp? How much? 12hrs and 24hrs? etc etc???

Many thanks.

Waveny Valley, give them a call, very helpful, last time i spoke to them, Nash Whiskey boillies were doeing well, fished with small PVA bags hard up against the far margins. Odd fish caught from the middle(No one really fishes here, I suspect the carp think it is safe) Just up from Wavenry you have Yew Tree Lake, beautiful place with some nice fish. Plenty of restrictions, but sensible ones. Catfish there too.

Back to Waveny, all the lakes are carp waters, but only some are open to day tickets. Again, best to phone and check as the areas u can fish seem to change each time I have been there. Its run through Penge Angling now, so these guys can help. There is a tackle shop and manager onsite and u can get just about anything there...including a hot shower.

hi malcom
if you do decide to fish there i fished on D lake, if you go on there what i can tell you what is what i was told myself and done. you will have to check about what pegs are free as it can get busy at this time of year, as far as baut i wa s using Protavit Liver 14mm bottom baits and pop-ups, if you can get aacsess to a bait boat i was using one when there is that the fish like nice tight beds of bait in there is to use one. as far as rigs at first when i got there i was using hook links of about 12-13 inch in length with no joy, i then changed to braid rigs of around 6 inch in length i then started to have takes mate, there are a lot of gravel bars in there and i was fishiing at the bottom of the bars, as far i am am told most people like to fish up tight to the islands on there and i was adviced to when i was there. once i had no joy i decided to come of the island about 4 feet and fish at the bottom of the bar i then started to have takes with fishing at the bottom of the bar you are more likly to get drop backs as all my takes was, i was hittin single beeps and was catching, once there i was not using a lt of bait and i pre baited the spots for three days before casting a bait to these spots in the end i used about 17 kilos of bait because of the amou nt of takes Parti blen, pellets, corn crushed boilies was my bed of bait. if you do decde to go there good luck mate best to ring Mike or Blake on 01986 788676.

Thanks very much Andy - I have copied the info into 'word' along with others and will bear it all in mind when I head that way next!

Malcolm, I forgot to mention, Taswood Lakes to the North of Norwich is well worth a visit. U have to pre book a place, but the fishing is fantastic and its very well run! I had 4 beautiful Ghosties up to 15 pounds off the top on floaters, all under the rod tip, and i must have missed about 20 of the buggers. Well worth a visit!!!
