  1. Jan 7th 2017.
    Arrived around 08:00, conditions were overcast, caught x6 catfish by 09:30, all around the same size, 3kg. Used scented bread suspended by a float/feeder about 1ft below the surface.
    Switched to lighter tackle & caught x 4 (Plah Nin) Talapia & x2 Yeesock using the same scented bread mix.
    I tried unsuccessfully to catch the red tail catfish using chicken hearts & liver.
    Fishing park started to get busy around 1pm.
    Overall a good day, will definitely be back.

  2. went there three times,wilf the manager is a great guy at hand,the staff are great do anything to help you have a great day,last time there, at 8,30 until 1,30pm,i got 2 lovely carm around 3 kilo,then a spikey thing on sweet corne,then a 7 kilo giant porana,also wilf himself pulled out a good sting ray,around 8 kilo,so theres every fish possible in this good fishing park,go have a good day out at a very good price,

  3. Sad to say, as from 7th Dec 2018, Wilfs Fishing retreat will be closed, due to landowner not renewing the lease. The lake has been netted & fish sold to other fisheries.
    Hopefully Wilf can find a suitable location & open another fishing venue.

    1. I went to Wilf’s in mid December and was shocked to find the place deserted with trash all over the place. I had been there a few times, with the last time only a few weeks earlier and everything was normal. What a sad end to a very good fishing park. I am happy to hear that the fish were removed to other parks, as they would surely all have been stolen.
      I have lived in the area for many years and have seen more than a dozen fishing parks close down. Very difficult for them to make enough money to develop the business.
