Mandarin is a good size single swim that can accommodate two if needed and with its neighbouring swim Pekin can hold up to three.
To the front of Mandarin is a good amount of open water with a long margin to the right parallel with the split and a deeper channel running alongside with a gravel bar that runs from right to left to the front.
Depths range from 3 to 7 feet.
Distance: 3 to 17 wraps.
The lake bed is mainly gravel, chalk and clay with a thin covering of silt.
Mandarin responds well to heavy baiting to start then little and often over yellow or pink pop ups.
