Whilst this fabulous fishery is essentially for residents only, anglers can buy a day ticket for fishing every Friday and Sunday, and at £10 per day (£5 kids and OAPs), it’s well worth having a day’s fishing if you are holidaying in the area … you’ll go back I promise you and might even book in for next year, as I have for this year. Jenny’s Lake boasts 54 pegs and is a magnet for pleasure anglers, not only because of her beauty, but because she holds secrets that will be revealed if anglers fish half right. You can lob a feeder out to any one of the islands (yawn!) but running line tactics, or pole if you must, make for much more fun as this is a ‘bubbler lake’ and the excitement of watching that float disappear amongst a jacuzzi of bubbles is, well, better than sex? Drop a couple of small balls of White Acres own blend of ‘Cornish Baggin’ Mix’ in (not too far out) and loose feed some of the same in pellet form and away you go. A tin of sweetcorn added to the bait menu is all you will need for a day’s activity and plenty of fish in the landing net. Golden tench (they are fantastic), Crucians, rudd and maybe a big Ghostie will present anglers with a kaleidoscope of colourful fish, but beware, when you hook one of Jenny’s skimmers, they literally ‘fly in the air’! Nelson’s pleasure lake holds only 12 pegs that is home to 600 carp into double figures, and lots of little islands to fish to, so anglers won’t go short of a feature or two or three even. Bigger baits such as 8mm pellets will score along with sweetcorn fished in multiples, and if you’re not intending to fish the float and are more inclined towards the bomb or feeder, then hair-rig those baits and watch that tip fly round! The White Acres tackle and bait shop (tel: 01726 862519) is fully kitted out with top-of-the-range products and is run by fishery manager Clint Elliott and his professional team of staff that put anglers in the right spot to bag-up and have a great day’s sport.
