Moors Lake is our main match and pleasure fishing lake. It has 48 permanent pegs on comfortable platforms and runs to 5 acres in size.
The lake has steeply shelving near and far margins. Depths are typically around 6' and the bottom is generally flat.
Bomb with pellets, feeder with meat or corn, and long pole with pellets or worm over groundbait all produce well.
When fishing to the islands, the pellet waggler or deep waggler are top methods.
Because the margins are deep, fishing along the edge with the pole works well and the short pole with paste also produces at times.
