Brakes Long Pit Colchester Angling Preservation Society is a carp lake based in Hardys Green, Colchester, United Kingdom. It has a stock of around carp and is 13.5 Acres in size. The biggest carp is over 40lb+

Brakes Long Pit is an old gravel pit on the outskirts of Colchester (close to Colchester Zoo) and is around 13.5 acres in size.
Whilst there is a good head of Carp in the pit, the Long Pit is not easy but effort could equal reward in the shape of a 30lb+ specimen. The pit record,  which was previosuly a syndicate water, currently stands at 41lbs for a Mirror and 38lbs 12oz for a Common.
The stock is made up of young fish which are growing at a very healthy rate.
The Long Pit has also become well known for its Pike fishing with 3 different fish over 28lbs being banked in 2018 and a 33lb fish the largest to date.
(Note restriction on pike fishing See news item and comments under water restrictions)
The gravel workings still pump to and from the lake so the water can fluctuate a bit but with the deepest area of the lake being around 40ft, there is always plenty of water.
