The Fish at Blackthorn Pines

Lake record 35lb 5oz

2 x confirmed 30 + 

From our 2023 catch records, we are confident over 50 of the fish in the Pines lake are now 20lb+ and during 2024 many of those that were high teens in 2023 will be 20lb+ in 2024. Some very fast growers pushed 28lb+ in summer 2023, which we hope will be new 30lb+ in 2024. 

There really are some special looking fish in here. From fully scaled and apple slices, to linears and even a true leather carp. We are so excited to see how they thrive. We anticipate the fishing could be a little easier than the blackthorn main lake, especially to begin with, but it’s still of a stock level that it’s aimed at the experienced specimen carp angler with room for these stunning fish to grow to their full potential.
