Day Ticket Lakes at Messingham Sands
tickets are available on three separate waters all of which are
reserved solely for the pleasure angler, no matches are held on
these lakes thus guaranteeing that there are pegs available at all times.
one of the best Day Ticket lakes you could ever hope to fish, it is
really well stocked with a variety of species and gives excellent
all year round sport. Anglers target the Carp in particular during
the warmer months and take really good mixed bags of Carp, Skimmers,
Rudd and Chub when temperatures fall. A bite a cast is almost
guaranteed on light tackle even in the coldest weather.
The lake is on the right immediately as you enter the fishery with
vehicular access to every one of the 50 pegs.
During the warmer weather almost any bait or method will meet with
success, including pellet, corn, meat, bread etc and100lb plus
catches are commonplace.
During the winter months baits such as soft pellet, maggots and
casters come into their own.

North Day Ticket Lake
is popular for the quality of the fish with many species present to
specimen sizes. Although there is a good head of Carp to over 25lbs
and a few Catfish to 40lbs plus, which both respond to
traditional Carp fishing tactics, it is the silver fish which are
the jewels in the crown. Roach and Rudd to 2lbs, plus quality
Skimmers and larger Bream to over 5lbs, Perch to over 4lbs and a few
Chub to 6lbs can be caught. Up in the water tactics with maggots or
casters will produce a bite a cast all year round and the mixture of
fish species always makes for an interesting day.
There are around 25 pegs including some in a channel which respond
well to waggler tactics and a large deep basin which is very popular
in the winter.

South Day Ticket
day ticket lake is always in great form producing quality fish for
visiting anglers. It has 25 well spaced pegs and is well suited to
the natural angler, this lake tends to be overlooked with many
anglers preferring to fish the Oak Tree lake instead but this lake
holds many specimen sized fish which can be caught quite easily on a
wide variation of methods and baits, If you are happy catching quality
all day then this is the place to fish with individual fish weighing
in at more than 2lbs and many other fish attaining specimen
proportions, the Carp and Catfish can be caught on a wide variation of methods
including on the surface and up in the water but the better fish are
normally caught on more traditional bomb or feeder rigs using bigger
baits that the smaller fish cannot get to, if you are a bit of a
purist angler and enjoy fishing for fighting fit fish then this is
the lake for you.
