Bait boats are permitted on Lakes Pepper and Christine.
However, there has been a significant increase in the numbers of anglers who have got them stuck and had to ask for them to be recovered. We are a small family run business and doing this takes valuable time away from us to carry out important maintenance and/or improvements around the rest of the lakes.
We have no wish to ban them, used correctly they are a useful tool in the anglers tool box, and this would be unfair on the vast majority who use them without issue. Instead we recommend that if you want to use them, then tie a line to them so that in the event that they become stuck, they can be recovered.
If you choose not to, then please don’t be surprised if you are charged (£20) to recover it.
