Our new Boat for Self-Drive Predator fishing is now available.
Self-drive boat - NO
What better way is there to fish these fantastic lakes,
other than to skipper a boat with our Self-Drive option.
A licence is not required to to drive our fully equipped
15hp Kimble Hunter. The 55lb Motorguide electric trolling motor, along with 2 x
Lowrance Hook 7 GPS fish finders with mapping, make it easy to navigate these
If you have never skippered a boat before, don’t worry, full
training and instructions will be given on how to control the boats motors and
use the fish finders, a guide will accompany you until you are totally
We even launch you at the lake so you don’t get your feet
Detailed maps of the lakes with highlighted areas are
provided, - these show any non-navigable areas, productive areas to fish,
features like rocks or underwater islands, and most importantly any dangers to
watch out for.
For larger groups, we have 2 x 15hp 3.8m Cabri Boats
available, both fitted with electric trolling motor and fish finders.
Remember that No licence is required to drive these boats,
they are fully equipped, fully insured and have legal permissions for the
lakes, life jackets and Walkie Talkies are provided.!!!
Heres a couple of videos on the basic operation and functions of the Hook 7 GPS.
It will soon be time to get back on the lakes; the temperature is set to drop
around 10 degrees next week.
Obviously with temperatures of 38 /39c it’s not
ideal to be on the lake in these conditions so we have been on our summer
It’s never really a rest as there’s always plenty to do preparing for our
next season, even more so this year as we have a new 4 meter boat on order and we have to
kit it out when it arrives.
This 15hp boat will be available on a SELF-DRIVE basis as a licence
to drive it is not required; it will have sonar mapping and detailed maps to
help you navigate these awesome lakes.
Many of our guests opt for Bass and Barbel fishing, as do we, its
fantastic fishing especially on the surface. This however, means we don’t get a lot of Pike
So later this season, when the oxygen levels rise, we have decided to target Pike on a more
regular basis to show you the amazing pike fishing we have to offer here.
Last week whilst a few hours barbel fishing in the morning, we came accross this dead pîke, exactly why we dont pike fish at the moment. Antonio wanted a picture of it, so consequently it took me hours to bleach the boat, it was honking.
