Set in an idyllic location in the heart of the Worcestershire Countryside, Shatterford Lakes offers perfect fishing conditions for beginners and enthusiasts alike. Anglers with limited mobility are well catered for and several disabled anglers, including those with hearing/speach disabilities, have become regular customers over the years.
The water depth also means that this is a venue that fishes extremely well throughout the winter months, when fish in other still water venues may not be so obliging. Indeed, Winter League matches held during the harsh winter of 2009 were being won with catches of over 30lb, often caught through broken ice, with several roach over 2lb banked.
Specimen Lakes – Masters And Erics
These are deep waters and offer a rewarding challenge. Both have 14 fishable pegs and both have an island as a feature (see rules for minimum requirements). Popular baits include pop-up boilies, various pellets and luncheon meat.
Masters is the first you come to, and this lake also offers close parking and pegs very convenient for the disabled. Masters currently holds both site records: catfish (66lb) and carp (40lb 12oz). Masters drops to 35ft at its deepest, but it’s worth remembering that the record catches were caught very near the margins in shallower water.
