Fishery Information

Brookhall Lake in Essex is a four-acre fishing spot near Tiptree village. There are 50 spots to fish from, and the lake has a lot of carp, with some weighing up to 29 pounds. Most carp are between 6 and 15 pounds. There are also Bream up to 7 pounds and Tench up to 8 pounds. Roach are common, with some weighing up to 1 pound. The record for a match catch here is 191 pounds, and people often catch over 100 pounds just for fun.

In the summer, it’s popular to fish close to the edges of the lake. In colder months, fishing about 8 meters out on the bottom is effective. Pellets, paste, and bread are good bait choices, as well as sweetcorn and meat. If you want to catch roach, use maggot bait. For pole fishing, use size 14 to 10 barbless hooks and at least a no12 elastic.
