Has anyone fished at nanpantan reservoir near loughborough, in leicestershire, I've only been once, but I blanked, although I did see a bloke get a 22lb mirror from the other side of the lake.

The problem is, apart from the water tower, there are no features to fish to that you can see?!?

Here's a pic

Have you got the marker rod out and had a feel around? Ive heard the margins produce well at night.

I used to fish it at the very start of my carp fishing learning curve. I never caught anything either but then i again i wasnt geared up to fish a place like that, either tackle wise, mentally or through my technical skills or experience.

I wouldnt mind giving it another go now though but ive heard its days only, so night fishing is not allowed.

Its days only on the day ticket, if you buy a proper ticket you can do nights.

When ive spoken about Nanpantan reservoir to the lads in Bennetts they have never mentioned to me a ticket where you can fish the nights :?

Tried the marker mate, seriously, it's a bowl!

No bars, weed, silty patches etc

The problem is fish location, there isn't (apart from the fountain) any obvious fish holding areas!

Fished nanny a couple of times and never blanked, i always fish to the left of the inlet (in between the inlet and outlet) or just the other side of the outlet and casting about 40-60 yards out and always fished fishmeal boilies with stringers, the night ticket is a syndicate ticket and i believe there is about a 4 year waiting list :shock:

supposed to be a small depression in the center of the lake running from inlet to outlet, pinapple popups is a good bet know a few that swear by them on there

Thats what I was on yesterday, DT baits ones, about 40-60 yards out, to the right of the water tower, and I got one liner all day :(

The red blobs are where I was fishing, and have I labelled the inlet and outlet right?

Not fished the place myself but have been told there's a large yellow buoy towards the north of the lake that's worth a cast or three
