Bait Boat hire for The Mere

We highly recommend a bait boat on The Mere, as it suits the style of fishing, with the exception of Pegs 1, 2 & 3 which control the deep water of the lake, all other swims have no peg on the opposite bank, therefore the casting distance can vary from 70 yards, to over 120 yards. So a bait boat would be a huge advantage in placing your rigs and bait effectively along the far margin. STOCK We plan to introduce approximately 600 fish averaging over 18lb with hundreds of 20lb+ fish and upto 35lb+ in December 2021. Pictures of every fish stock will be on the gallery in December. Future Stock We plan to introduce a further 200 fish in the winter of 2022/2023 and a further 200 in the winter of 2023/2024. This will make the Mere one of the most productive carp fisheries in the UK. Scenery As you will see from the video footage, the Mere is a spectacular mature fishery that will offer very private and safe fishing.
