Big Lake

Broom Big lake is a stunningly peaceful venue situated on the Shuttleworth Estate in Bedfordshire. Embryo took on the venue early in 2017 with it opening fully in the spring of 2018.

After being dug, the lake lay unused for many years however in the rich, shallow waters the existing stock thrived on neglect and grew on naturally. With an ‘original’ stock estimated at between 150-200 carp to mid-40’s, in early 2017 our test fishing was very exciting and was filmed as part of the Korda ‘Masterclass 5’. In the summer of 2017, the lake was fully fenced to halt the predation that had been occurring and then later that year, an additional 70 carp were stocked between 14-24lb to ensure an even brighter future for the lake.

Since then, the fish have continued to gain weight steadily, largely due to the massive effort from the fishery management team who regularly feed the lake during the quiet periods, and the summer of 2019 saw the lake’s previous biggest fish, ‘Milestone’ push over the 50lb mark and then over 60lb in the spring of 2021, before sadly passing away in July 2022.

The spring of 2022 also saw several new thirty pounders banked along with three new forties, and a couple more rapidly heading towards 40lb!

With just 12 swims on 45 acres, each one commands a serious amount of water so if you enjoy the challenge that fishing larger pits can sometimes bring then this water will be right up your street!

Both the weekday and weekend waiting lists for this venue are now open for a limited time.
