Here's our lake and swim map, plus carp tactics guide, for Sandmartin Lake on the Bluebell Lakes complex near Peterborough...
Bluebell Lakes, Tansor, Oundle, Peterborough, Northamptonshire, PE8 5HP | Web: www.bluebell-lakes.co.uk | Tel: 01832 226042
The most under-rated of all the lakes at Bluebell, Sandmartin can often be an oasis of calm at this popular complex.
It's mature and deep, but has plenty of close-in features to go for. The lake shelves down in the margins to a deeper gulley about 30/40 yards out all the way round, then rises up again into the middle.
There's a very promiment gravel area a short cast from the concrete bank on the eastern bank, and inviting margins in the secluded south-western corner.
