Long Lake

Brakes Pit Long Lake is an old gravel pit near Marks Tey, Colchester and is around 14 acres in size.

The gravel workings still pump from and to the lake so the water can fluctuate a bit but with the deepest area of the lake being around 40ft, we're never likely to dry out!!!

There are approximately 150 carp in the lake with plenty over 30lbs. The lake record mirror currently stands at 41lbs and 38lbs 120z for a common.

The stock is made up of young fish which are growing at a very healthy rate.

The Long Lake has also become well known for its pike fishing with 3 different fish over 28lbs being banked in 2018.

Being just a 25 man syndicate ensures that the banks are always quiet and you'll never need to fight for a swim.
