MKM Arena Lake

The MKM Arena lake was dug in 2016 with the aim of providing a lake that was equally as fair as possible. With this in mind, the lake was dug in a doughnut shape with a central island.

Key Facts Depths & Contours


There is roughly a 2m flat bottom coming out from the central island that is approximately 2ft deep, this was to allow all anglers to have a safe zone for a method feeder.

From the 2m shelf the lake slopes down at 45 degrees to a channel that at its deepest is around 7ft deep

From the peg, it slopes out at 45 degrees leading to the central channel.

Most edges are roughly 18″ to 2ft deep with a very short shelf before it slopes down at 45 degrees.

The stocking of this lake is purely Common and Mirror Carp with up to 20,000 stocked at around 3″ in size when they first entered the lake in 2017. Over the course of time before this lake had anyone fish it over 16 tonnes of food was fed. The lake had its first anglers fish it on a practice match for the Fish North semi-final on August 2019. It then was fished a week later and this followed with the Semi-Final and Final of Fish North. It is now open but is only fished as a Match Lake, no pleasure fishing is allowed, this lake was dug purely for Open Matches.

The fish range in size from 8oz up to 3.5lb (as of November 2022), and most are now around the 1lb+ mark.

Average weights are anything from 80lb through to around 200lb+.
