We have consistently fed our Carp since 2013 on a combination of Boilies, Pellets and a cereal based particle mix (‘Spod mix’). We also made this ‘food’ available to anglers to purchase. As a result of the consistent feeding programme, supplemented by anglers baits and loose feed, the Carp across Cherry Lakes have thrived and have put on weight.
Our intention is to continue to feed all of these baits and foods across all of the lakes in 2017 and continue to make them available for our guests. We experimented with our 10KG pre-baiting service for the first time in 2016 which continue in a modified way this year. For 2017 we will be restricting the pre-baiting service to the smaller and more affordable 5KG option. As always please bring your own boilies if you have some favourite ones which your have confidence in. However if you are not confident in your usual bait, you can be sure the Cherry Lake Carp are used to the boilies and bait below and that they are proven winners!
We prefer our guests to use frozen rather than shelf life boilies, as the shelf life boilies do not break down as well and I feel are not as good for the Carp. All of the Cherry Lakes boilies supplied are high quality frozen baits.
We will continue to offer a range of Cherry Lake boiles in 2017. All of our Cherry Lakes boilies, which are made especially for us, are proven year round winners. They are made from high quality ingredients comprising of a mix of fish meal, bird food and milk proteins supplemented with enhancers, nutrients and subtle flavours. In short they are good for the Carp and the Carp love them!
All boilies have matching flavour pop-ups available which are a combination of natural bait colour and high visibility colours.
We will continue to use the same high quality Carp Pellets with a mix of low and high oil content which the Carp really seem to love.
We will continue to make our high quality ‘Spod Mix’ available in 2017. The mix will continue to be Wheat and Rolled Barley based, and also contain Hempseed, Maples, Sweetcorn and a bird conditioner. These well known food items will improve the attractiveness of the ‘Spod Mix’ to the Carp and keep them interested in the baited area for even longer. The ‘Spod Mix’ is also ideal for use in Baitboats. The Spod mix is not available between 1st November until 1 April once water temperatures fall beneath 10 Centigrade.
Pellets and Spod Mix are provided in returnable plastic buckets.
We will continue to offer the 6KG of freshly cooked Hemp in buckets. For 2017 we are adding a 12KG bucket option which offers even more value. This can either come as standard or in Chilli,Garlic or Curry varieties. These must be pre-ordered.
Pre-baiting service. £25 for 5KG
As a new service in 2016 we introduced a new 10KG pre-baiting service ( From April to October between 10-13.00 on Monday’s and Friday’s one area of your swim/lake) so that you can start ‘fast’ upon arrival. In truth the results were mixed and on occasion we felt that 10KG over two areas was too much. So for 2017 we will be restricting the pre-baiting service to the smaller and more affordable 5KG option. These areas will be selected by Dave Bowen the fishery manager. The pre-bait will be comprised of 3KG of Spod Mix, 1KG of pellets (fast dissolve and mixed pellets) and 1kg of Cherry Lake boilies. These boilies will be matched to your pre-ordered bait orders where appropriate.
In 2017 we are introducing two cracking new successful boilies to our range and withdrawing some of the past favourites. Whilst we might add to the range during the year we will start with a very productive bird-food based boilie which we are calling ‘Dairy-Cream Delight’ alongside our new proven fishmeal boilie, ‘Supreme Fish’. These boilies will be available in multiples of 1KG and the better value bags of 2.5Kg.
As a new innovation for 2017, the matching flavour pop-up’s for the new boilie range will have approx. 2/3 same natural colour and flavour as the boilie supplied and 1/3 high visibility colours. This gives the angler plenty of choice in one tub and saves buying two!
