Southlake is your classic estate/park lake with depths ranging from a few feet to over 10ft at it's deepest point. The fish are caught all year round from all areas of the lake and other than the out of bounds area behind the islands, there are no restrictions on where you can fish. The areas where fishing is not permitted are clearly marked on the map and are roped off with floating bouys. Any anglers caught fishing into these areas will lose their membership immediately.
The vast majority of fish are caught at less than 50 yards range and standard carp fishing tactics should see good results.
The weed as with any gravel pit, comes in cycles.
Some years the weed is non existent and some years there is more.
