Cuttle Mill - an excellent & famous 3 acre carp lake this situated in Wishaw, Sutton Coldfield, both lakes are well stocked with carp, the main lake being best with carp up to nearly 40lb, good multiple catches are possible. The smaller lake has some good carp too but the main lake is the big attraction, onsite there is a toilet, & cafe (they do a nice breakfast). Cuttle Mill is a busy day ticket fishery, you must book your tickets in advance and you may need to do so well in advance though the lake does get quieter late on in the year. In my view this lake is somewhere you must go at some point, both the fishing and the atmosphere is great. For more info Tel: 01827 872253.
