A lovely dry day today, but a nasty cold easterly breeze… Although not strong enough? to hamper the pole fishing today?.!
Some cracking nets of silvers were recorded today… Lots of quality roach, some nice big ide and bream, a few chub and the odd carp even made an appearance.!
Section 1 was won by Ian Whitson on peg 20, with a nice mixed net of silvers… Big ide were the main species, but a few chub, the odd skimmer and some roach all added up to give him a weight of 33lbs 4oz… Which also won the lake today. All caught on maggot/pole at 13m, with the last two hours being the more productive.
Runner-up was Michael Harkness who caught four small carp on the feeder for 12lbs, losing two more also.
David Mcgregor was a very close 3rd with 11lbs 12oz of roach, caught on maggot/pole.
Section 2 was a very close one with only 8oz separating the top 3..!
Don Lines won the section with 24lbs 8oz, mainly Bream caught on maggot/pole at 8m… With a bonus carp thrown in for good measure.
Mark Acton was only a mere 4oz behind to finish runner-up with 24lb 4oz, again bream caught on maggot/pole.
Steve Royle was 3rd with 24lbs dead… Again mainly bream with a few roach.
Barry Young managed 20lbs 4oz, a nice net of nearly all roach for 4th place in what turned out to be a very tight section.
Very tight throughout the lake today which made for a good close match for all involved, those bigger bonus fish making the difference… Well done guys.!!
