Two weeks have passed since my successful trip to pit 5 at the Chertsey complex and it was now time for a new challenge. A three night trip was organised with my girlfriends brother Jamie and it was decided that the largest secluded lake on the complex (pit 4) would be our target. The week before the trip began on a low after finding out a good friend had passed away and so I nearly called it off but figured I would be better of concentrating on catching some carp then sitting at home.
Pit 4, at four acres is the largest pit on the complex and one of the more difficult waters to tackle. The depths range from around 6ft in the margins to 16ft in some areas. This coupled with the mass stock of bream made the fishing a little trickier and big baiting was out the question. The pit has a healthy stock of carp with some stunning fish to be caught and with carp to 35lb + there was a possibility to improve my PB of 27lb.
