Brandesburton Burshill B Pond

Burshill B is a mature fairly shallow fishery of about 3 acres. It is primarily a tench water but does contain roach, rudd, bream, pike, crucians, perch and carp.

It can becomes very weedy in summer, but raking your swim can sometimes encourage the tench to feed. Early mornings or evenings are the best times for tench and those that are caught are often of a good size. Fish over 5lb are regularly caught, with a specimen of 8lb 2oz reported some years ago, and fish over 7lb more recently. Any tench over 6lb, however, can be considered an achievement in East Yorkshire.

Since 2008 the venue has been included in our stocking programme, with the introduction 90 1lb-plus tench (up to 7lb 12oz), several hundred crucian carp, large numbers of rudd and small carp, plus a further 400 small tench to just under 1lb. Some larger tench were added in 2021. In January 2024 a further 30lb of bream (4-6lb) were stocked.

This is another fishery which has received a major facelift, recently all the swims have been renewed and an extra swim added, a new footpath was also created allowing easy access around the venue along with better road access and improved car parking and toilet facilities provided in the main car park. Drainage pipes were installed to keep the water level down during periods of heavy rain. The Association’s Brandesburton Ponds are all protected with otter fences.
