Our Carp Pond boasts a fantastic collection of Commons, Scaled, Linear and Ghost
Carp, confirmed at up to 12lbs in weight, with an average weight of 4-5lbs.
There is also an abundance of silverfish; Roach, Rudd and Golden Rudd confirmed at
up to 2lbs in weight, with the occasional large Perch and Jack Pike also being reported.
We would recommend either a waggler-rod approach with slow-sinking bait or a surface-controller
method, with Gold Baits Pellets (Available in Retford Angling Centre or through our
Online Shop) proving particularly successful in coaxing the larger examples into
The Carp Pod has only 5 fishing pegs, each with vehicular access and planted with
a variety of wild flower and natural habitat. A wide variety of birds and insects
are present on the bank for your appreciation and enjoyment.
