Mark Bartlett holidays at Cofton and making time for some Fishing

04 March 2019

At Cofton we are extremely proud of the diverse fishing experience we offer to our guests. In summer 2018 we were excited to welcome Mark Bartlett to our park and lakes, a fox consultant and  2 times winner of the british carp championship.

Mark Bartlett

Although the purpose of his visit was to have a relaxing family break, of course he made time to fish on the lakes while he relaxed, here is what he had to say;

“Cofton is a great place to spend time. Aside from the awesome surroundings in the countryside and the facilities as a holiday park, you can escape to the lakes which are perfect to accommodate all types of fishing.

During my stay at Cofton, I fished at dawn creeping around the corners of the lakes, stalking the carp, before heading back for breakfast with a few fish under my belt. Then in the evening catching carp to upper doubles on floaters in the Luscombe and Trusham Lakes.

On the Wednesday of my trip I fished the mid week open match on Mamhead lake, which was another great day catching carp on the waggler and feeder to an island. I then had a late run of decent skimmers on the pole to win the match which was fantastic.

During the days we also spent time with the kids on the Powderham lake where we fished with a little float on light gear catching small carp, tench and even some crucians. The kids loved it and it was a nice reminder of how I grew up fishing, fun for everyone.”

Mark came for a Family holiday, but couldn’t leave without trying out Coftons carp fishing experience.

It's good to share...
