Baulking Lake will be available to book exclusively from early 2023 for a maximum of twelve anglers, but it can be fished until the end of December 2022 by pre-booking via the Embryo office. Simply call 01268 285987 for more details.
We stocked the lake in the autumn/winter of 2019 with around 560 x C3, C4 and C5 carp from Mark Simmond’s at Heather Fisheries, Priory Fisheries, VS Fisheries and a Lea Valley supplier. We then added a further twenty cracking C6’s from ‘Simmo’ at the end of 2020 to make a final stock of over 580 fish.
As always, a very diverse mixture of fish was received, including fully scaled mirrors, linears, leathery mirrors and some beautiful commons, so there really is something for everyone at Baulking!
The lake itself is 20 acres in size, with depths down to well over 30ft in the middle, making it the ideal environment for these fish to reach their growing potential! In fact, some of the fish caught during the light amount of test fishing that’s been done prior to opening have put on over 10lb in weight, which is fantastic.
Baulking contains very little in the way of weed, so finding areas to fish is not a problem and with it being quite a deep lake, it fishes really well right into the winter.
Making bait your ‘feature’ is a great way to fish here and when they turn up on you, action can be hectic, so be prepared with plenty of bait if you want to hold them in your swim and maximise your chances of a big hit!
