Sandmartin Lake Key Details
Sandmartin Lake, Bluebell Lakes
Often the quietest lake on the complex, Sandmartin is home to some incredible fish that are less pressured than others on the complex.
Anglers doing quick overnighters and day sessions are regularly putting fish on the bank, something that can’t be said about the other lakes on Bluebells.
Sandmartin is the most underrated lake on Bluebells
What do I need to know?
Sandmartin is one of the most under-rated of all the lakes at Bluebell, meaning that quite often it will be the quietest of them all yet it can often throw up some incredible looking carp to over 45lb!
It’s one of the prettiest and most mature boasting deep troughs in the middle and plenty of close-in features that the carp love to frequent.
The lake shelves down in the margins to a deeper gulley about 30/40 yards out all the way round, then rises up again into the middle.
Zig rigs can work very effectively in the middle areas, especially using shades of yellow, all year round.
There’s a very prominent gravel area a short cast from the concrete bank on the eastern bank, this has been the hotspot of many good anglers over the years as well as the inviting margins in the secluded south-western corner.
If you’re looking for a lake that’s a little quieter but yet yields the chance of a whacker then Sandmartin would be a very enjoyable choice.
Don’t go to the Sandmartin without these:
