What do I need to know?
The main carp water on the Bluebell complex and home to the late Benson at 64 pounds.
This 7 acre lake offers varying depths that generally range from 13ft to 16ft and the many overhanging trees can provide little sanctuaries for some great marginal angling.
Firstly and definitely the most important factor is locating the carp, the most effective way to do this is to be up at first light and awake way in to the darkness watching for any signs of carp.
Most anglers on the Kingfisher lake will wake up very early and watch to be one step ahead of the rest will definitely aid you in putting fish on the bank.
Once you have located the carp is now time to find some clay.
Most swims on Kingfisher will have some areas of clay in front of them, particularly the points which command the central area of the lake.
Feeling for the firmer areas amongst the clay will always pay off well, as the fish seem to love the rock-hard spots.
There is a huge shoal of bream in Kingfisher, so it always pays to use boilies in particular big baits, 16mm or larger.
Kingfisher is a very popular lake and when angling pressure is high it always plays well to tuck yourself into a quiet corner let the angling pressure push the fish towards you so that in mind never neglect corners.
Floaters work incredibly well on Kingfisher and it is without doubt a firm favourite way of fishing amongst the regular anglers on the complex.
Although to some it is hard work because of the amount of seagulls. However, if you feed them off you can be in for some top sport.
