My son and I decided to give it a try on a quick overnighter for just £12, no booking was needed you just turn up and the baliff will come to you. We set up around 5pm and did'nt have to wait long for some action. We went back quite a few times and managed fish to 24lb. There are a number of reports of larger fish and on the right day it really can produce the goods. Carp mid 20's, commons & grass carp to 15+. roach, perch, bream & tench fishing.

Brogborough Pit and Lagoon
(Club Water)

The lake is primarily a 'big' fish lake with bream, tench, pike and carp to
specimen sizes. It is also home to huge shoals of roach which are rarely caught
due to the fact they only seem to make brief visits to the margins at certain times
of the year. It would be interesting to see anglers having a go for these elusive
fish as the rewards could be huge!
