JB Lake is a 40 acres gravel pit and is part of the Goncourt Complex. The lake has never been fished before so the fish stock is unknown. The lake is over 20 years old and was originally stocked with over 600 hundred carp. Both mirrors and commons are present. The largest carp caught to date is a mirror of 60 lb. We estimate the average size of the fish to be 20lb plus with the fish growing by as much as three pounds per year.
JB Lake is a typical gravel pit with gravel bottom, silt area and weed. The depth is 2 m to 3.5 at its deepest mostly 2 m though. You have access to all swims around the lake by car. You can park at the rear of your swims.
The lake's size makes it suitable for an exclusive booking for 16 anglers maximum or 14 individually booked anglers.
Important: you can't book a specific swim; on arrival there's a draw for the swim. There are plenty of swims, so everybody will have a good and nice swim.
This means that each angler will always have their own area of water to fish. The lake has an average depth of five to seven feet with quite a uniform flat bottom.
There are boats available on this lake and we recommend that these are used for weeded fish. When using the boats you must always wear a life jacket. Due to weather condition we might have weed during the warmer months. Because the lake hasn't been fished before, the fishing on JB Lake is considered to be easy with multiple catches regularly reported.
