Default Hazelwood 'carp' fishery Ballygoawn

I have fished here once before and only caught tiddlers. Didnt believe the man that there were carp in it as he wasnt talking about it much and seemed unsure. My friend then said that a guy from his work caught a 22lb carp in it last week, was wondering is there bigger fish in this lake? Has anyone fished it?

how you doing lad, haven't fished it at all myself, but have been looking into it recently, called the phone number, got the cleaner, she told me it was a syndicate, although i think thats wrong. any time i've driven past the solid wood doors are closed. It's an old quarry, guys in the village tackle say it's a good lake.
Do you ever fish the lake opposite? looks like a typical pike/perch lake to me, been thinking of giving it a go, any info appreciated

davy thanks very much, yes i have fished this lake before but had no clue of how to fish it, now im a little more knowledgeable and im hoping to fish it on sunday. Yes sometimes the wooden fence has been shut but i rang 'noal' and in advance told him of my arrival so hopefully gates will open this time! He said it was stoked well with 1300 carp when they first opened, (i guess a good few years ago) so maybe carp have gotten bigger. Davy, there are 2 lakes in it, which is better? The one closest to the house with the window looking out on it or the farther one back? Im hoping to land some carp on sunday, got my unhooking mat and a load of carp grub! If i don catch, at least im feeding them with my freebies! haha

Cheers to all above for the info, will look that venue up BigB,
Just back from half a day at hazelwood, started off somewhere else but it was grim so made the call early to go and try hazelwood, since it was only for a few hours and our first time the fella let us fish 2 rods each, very good of him, i fished a waggler at about 2 foot and had bite every cast near enough, roach, rudd and small perch best roach to about a pound. My other rod was ledgered sweetcorn tench being the target, not a nibble, also tried the worm but only perch on it. Any tips for catching tench method/bait etc appreciated, only ever caught them at willis's lake in belfast, that was on maggot.

PS the casters were deadly for the bigger roach.

i think hazlewood is a really good place to fish i would say its well up there as one off the best i been fishing for carp for over 20 years and you dont want to drop ya line in and get one you want to fight for it i have had carp out off hazlewood upto 20ld and i no thay are very shy and i was baiting a swim for 4 days when thay just went mad for it hazlewood is not for the novice so all you ones that are trying to put it down you really should take up golf or somethink lmao how you fished there for 2 hours and never had a pike is maddness i had 5 pike in one afternoon not massive 8ld 9ld but had a 17ld in the night and there is a monster in the big lake as i have seen it jump and it defo looks like a good 25ld and with all the small fish in there its not hard to think off it being big rudd are massive in this lake for some reason roch are small and can be a pain in the ass but use bigger baits and you get the better fish and the lake over the road your not allowed to fish soon as you get on there the farmer is over telling you to get off it so the way i see it if you want a challange and some were to make you think then hazlewood is a great place and can only see it getting better with time as the roch get bigger and make it more fun for the younger and more novice angler

Default Hazlewood Update

I found this to barely be a fishery in the sense that most would expect. Trash backside and an assortment of chairs, tabletops and other items thrown into the margins spoil what would otherwise be a fairly nice spot. The smaller of the two ponds seemed polluted and the larger yielded a stunted poorly conditioned roach at every cast. The sort of fishing a child might like but I soon tired of. The ponds seemed unmanaged to the point of neglect and I left pretty much within an hour. I would not recommend this to anyone.
