Millfield Pool is a day ticket specimen carp venue in West Yorkshire holding approx 200 carp to over 30lb. It is a well established, intimate 4.5 acre lake with ten spacious pegs, a safe gated perimeter fence, good vehicle access, otter fence and toilet/shower facilities.
The lake is stocked with approximately 200 carp made up of originals and some of the best looking and fastest growing carp strains available. LAKE RECORD 32LB.
At 4.5 acre in size, with depths up to 19 feet in winter and a mixture of silt, weed and gravel lakebed this is a challenging water to fish. If you are new to carp fishing or relatively inexperienced then we advise you gain experience elsewhere before coming here.
Situated in Horbury near Wakefield, West Yorkshire and within 5 minutes drive of M1 junction 40.
TIPS I'VE BEEN TOLD ABOUT VENUE
Snags are the place to be but don't go too close and get snagged up or get any fish tethered it won't just embarrass you it will embarrass me when I have to get the bailiff to come to the lake. Only you know your limits as an angler so don't do anything daft.
All of the lakes biggests residents get caught less then 6ft from the bank, this is a northern water not brasenose 1 so don't fill it in because the lake will just die and ruin it for everyone.
Its very choddy so helicopters, chod rigs and bags are the way to go.
It is a small discreet lake so keeping the volume down is a must. Don't ring the dinner bell for them its sounds more of a rape alarm to them. Alarms on low or silent if your near them.
Zigs can also be effective if the situation calls for it.
This is by far the best thing I know about the lake. Burger King Deliver.

This is a team effort to catch fish not to see how many fish you personally can catch. We need as many fish caught as possible across the board not 1 guy with 20 fish and everyone else blanking so be considerate to everyone and if your hauling share the knowledge. Secret Squirrels stay at home.
