Welcome to Badger’s Holt, the smaller of the two lakes on the Serreire complex at 2.7 acres. This magical water has gone from strength to strength since it was first opened back in 2003. This is predominately‘Big Fish’ water and growth rates have been remarkable over the years. In 2016, the average weight of the fish for the year was just over 48lb (21kg). Many anglers have had hits of multiple 40s and 50s in a session including one angler who managed sixteen fish over 40lb in a session including a 70+ mirror, a 60+ common and five 50s – It is a remarkable water.
The biggest fish in 2016 was the famous JoJo caught by Alan Taylor at 79lb 12oz, her record weight. There are also a couple of very big commons with one of them currently around 66lb, so the next years will be interesting! We had at least 3 new 50s in 2015, so growth rates have been exceptional over the last years.
The fishing can be tricky because the fish have seen it all before. But the rewards are very high when it all comes right. There are very big fish caught most weeks. Please note that this lake is only suited to very experienced carp anglers – It is not easy.
There is a comfortable wooden cabin on the banks of Badger’s Holt that was totally refurbished in 2015. Take a look a the facilities page for more details. A lot of work was also completed during the last two winters to improve the main swim in front of the cabin and provide a dry and very comfortable area, easily large enough to accommodate two bivvies.
