Teardrops Two, Milton Keynes

The last pond on the complex with a dense set of Norfolk Reeds on the far bank which can be a great carp-holding area.

The lake boasts tree-lined margins too which the carp frequent.

There are some very good fish with the average size being low doubles to mid doubles with a few surprise 20’s too.

Teardrops lake 4 is the last lake after lake 3 (which is a no fishing nature reserve) and is yet again the same size as the other lakes on the complex.

It is a teardrop shape as the lake name suggests.

Lake 4 is a little bit more of a challenge than lake 2, but not as challenging as lake 1.

There are some very good fish with the average size being low doubles to mid doubles with a few surprise 20’s too.

Again, tactics wise, like the other lakes, stalking in the channels and setting traps in the margins seems to do the business with a good quality boilie.
