Was put off tiddenfoot as vans are at risk if left over night? Also what about on the bank? As Iíve been round it just with my missus and little boy and had a bit of agro off some Ďladsí they soon left but itís not what you want when fishing/walking.

What about a Leighton book? Tiddenfoots not a bad looking water for a club book. Also smallford on the velulam ticket is a nice little water to creep around.

Hit and miss midweek, usually quiet but the last year has changed that with the furloughed lot.
Night fishing is fine on all but Sharnbrook pit 5 and 6, they're days only but get hammered, hence I used to get there in the very early hours before you're supposed to. Pit 4a is laughable as you get a trio of guys thinking they're on Wraysbury all bivvied up with 3 rods.... they always blank... I doubt the lake is more than an acre with a couple of low twenties and a few doubles.

No otter fencing as they only rent the fishing rights. Woburn for me is a better venue but there's a bit of a clique there and it gets busy. If you do things differently though Sharnbrook is worth a go.
The three runs day pits at Sharnbrook are easy, loads of fish but they do get a lot of pressure from the white tshirt and peg mallet brigade. Best to bend the no night fishing rules and get there a few hours before they turn up. Great for kids, I sometimes take my lad down there for a few bites, loads of perch and silvers.

Has it got otter fencing now? Or is it still just as bad?

Thanks for the info may join for a year and see how I go; it would be Woburn Iím most interested in! Just depends how busy things are still going to be. Iím currently a member of Luton AC aswell so might do both tickets. Lutonís also lost kempston for the new season so everywhere else I imagine will become very busy!

How ďruns waterĒ are they? Iíve got a little fella who loves coming with me but needs to be kept busy!

Sharnbrook did get hammered by the otters for a while, still some worthy fish left but the pits are so full of naturals it makes it hard. Lightly baiting margin spots and creeping around is by far the best way to fish the place. The run of the mill club anglers don't do it any favours either.... I stopped fishing because my target fish was killed in the summer by poor handling. All of the pits got a lot of pressure this season too. Pit 1 could throw up the odd surprise, nobody really fished it at all last year and it held a couple of corkers that as far as I'm aware are still in there. Pit 2 holds two, possibly three low to mid 30s now. Pit 3 has some nice fish and a rumoured low 30 common, some cracking tench too. Pit 4 gets far too much bait and pressure but there's a handful of nice fish to 38lb. It received a stocking late last year and early last year too. The other three are day runs waters and not ideal for peace and quiet.

Woburn holds some gorgeous fish, fishes better late autumn and is a good margin water in the spring. Access is an ongoing problem but the club are building a new car park soon.

I was a member for a few years. Every morning i used to walk the whole Sharnbrook complex on what i dubbed the 'walk of death' as every single time i did a circuit of the complex i would find the remains of ottered fish. Numerous occasions otters were swimming round the pits as i fished. There are carp still in the pits but few and far between and fewer every year.

Sharnbrook/Woburn mainly just wanted to get an idea of how they fish if itís busy (under normal circumstances) just a general idea if itís worth getting a ticket.

I've been a member and fished their venues for over 20 years now, any particular venues in mind?
