We suggest you use a quality bait like cell or activ-8 from mainline they have both caught loads of fish on the lake, around 2-3kg of boilie should be enough (there is a shop onsite that provides bait if needed). Marginal fishing is a great tip for this lake. Using high vis popups work really well.
