Two Lakes, One Ticket Price!
As of 2021 you can fish both Whittle Mere and Thorney Mere on the one syndicate ticket at Teakettle Fisheries for just £650.00 pa. Since opening both lakes at Teakettle Fisheries have come on leaps and bounds producing some excellent fish to almost 50lb. The fishery is located close to Peterborough and Whittlesey with good access routes from all across Cambridgeshire. To enquire about joining this syndicate and have access to both of these brilliant lakes scroll down to fill out the form below.
Whittle Mere is 20 acre flooded gravel pit located just to the east of Peterborough which has been managed on a syndicate basis since 2013 (it was largely unfished prior to that).
Although relatively young, extensive landscaping has created a wonderful-looking fishery, with 21 well-appointed swims each with plenty of water and features. The lake holds around 300 carp with the average size being around the 20lb-26lb mark, and some impressive catches of fish between upper doubles to mid-twenties have been taken by syndicate members.
This beautiful 10 acre flooded gravel pit sits next to Whittle Mere on the Teakettle Fisheries complex.
It is more natural than its neighbour Whittle Mere, surrounded by mature trees and with extensive marginal vegetation. This lake now has 16 well placed swims which have been purposely kept as natural as possible. Limited fishing has taken place, but mirrors up to 37lb have been caught during ‘test’ fishing sessions. We have recently also stocked this lake with an additional 130 carp from the on-site stock pond to supplement the stunning original stock of around 50 fish.
