Milton Pan Lake (Syndicate)

Ashford Road Chartham CT4 7

One of our cherished bodies of water is Pan Lake. This spectacular 12 acre mature gravel pit, dug in the 1970s, is home to some of MKF's largest specimen fish. Each fish in this lake has a distinct personality, including a beast of a common dubbed Swirly, which weighs at at almost 40 pounds.

Between 80 and 100 carp are thought to be present in the lake, with around ten in the top 30's and four in the 40's to 46's. It's unsurprising that it's been dubbed one of the UK's top fisheries.

Since previously said, this is a site for specimen anglers, as it holds not only massive carp, but also possibly world-record-breaking tench. "The Pan Lake is arguably the greatest Tench Fisheries in the nation," Martin Bowler previously said. Martin landed eight tench over ten pounds, thirteen over nine pounds, and twenty-three over eight pounds in a 48-hour period. This infamous establishment also appeared in Martins DVD and book, Catching The Impossible, where he details the fantastic night he had catching some of the greatest tench in the nation.

This location is known for its gigantic pike. This site produced the club record pike, weighing in at a whopping 36 pounds. This is what makes this location so special; it's an all-around PB breaking and a true specimen hunter's dream.

The parking lot is next to the Pan, which is shared by Handle members. Please ensure that the gate is secured at all times and that it is not left open or unlocked under any circumstances. You will face disciplinary action if this is the case. We encourage all Pan members to sign in in the shack adjacent to the entrance, even if they are just going to be there for a few hours.

All of our syndicates have a time restriction of 48 hours each season with a 24-hour break before returning to fish. You may extend your stay if you reserve in advance.

Carp up to 46lb
Tench up to 15lb
Pike up to 36lb
