Specimen Carp lake - swim layout

Burton Springs Carp Lake contains six swims, four double swims and two single swims. All swims are woodchipped and are easily accessible from the unloading bay.

 


Swim 1 - This is a double swim and the first you see when you enter the lake. It is sure to be an excellent swim for the warmer months as it offers some excellent margin spots although anglers can also access the deeper open water.

Swim 2 - This is a single swim which has plenty of space for two bivvies and allows you to access the island.

Swim 3 - This is another double swim and it offers the largest area of water on the lake. Access to the deepest water as well as the island at around 70 yards will make it a challenging yet potentially rewarding cast!

Swim 4 - A Double swim allowing easy access to the Island as well as the fondly named 'Common Corner'. This swim also benefits from a wooden fence built around it to aid privacy and also act as a windbreak!

Swim 5 - This is a single swim and is the only swim on the western side of the lake. It is furthest from the Unloading bay and it can be lonely. But the isolation means it is likely to be one of the unpressured areas of the lake which could produce our next 30 pounder.

Swim 6 - Last but not least, swim six is a double swim. It is only 100 metres from the loading bay and offers access to one of the best margin and snag spots on the lake as well as open water.
