Is lakeside (opposite the airport) any good?

I used to fish it when it first opened after the airport opened, had some good times there. Start with bream, then tench, then carp and the cycle would go on. Some of those carp must of come on a bit by now? 

 There was a park type lake further down from Eastleigh, colden Common roundabout, towards the motorway on the left where there's a lay by. Used to go swimming there in the summer, but saw a few lumps before we started splashing about

Lakeside I believe is Eastliegh  club , trouble with the place is its open to the public , so you take a chance on your own at night that your gear is still there in the morning , just my opinion tough. 

The other one I have seen from the road many time s but know very little about it , their are Carp in both thats for sure .

To be fair Eastleigh only really offer Carp to mid 20s probably the odd bigger one .
