Fir Tree Pond, Matches »

[29 May 2016 | Comments Off on Today’s Open Result and New Lake Record | ]

Had a great open today fishing in beautiful, warm sunshine. The Carp we’re spawning in Heron Lake so we fished on Fir Tree Pond. Alex Bradley (Pictured) drew peg 11, he had a good moan, but I knew he would do well and although the stamp of fish he caught was small, he set a new record for the lake (That’s both lakes he now holds the record for!) Here are the results:

1st Alex Bradley Peg 11 72lb 15oz
2nd Aide Holland Peg 15 64lb 6oz
3rd Neil Hodder Peg 4 58lb 4oz and biggest fish bonus with 4lb Mirror Carp

Match Winner Alex Bradley 29.05.16

Well done Alex. Thanks to everyone who came it was a really enjoyable day.

Our next match will be Sunday 5th June. Hope to see you there

Sunday’s match was fished on Heron Lake and although Alex had a good weight it fished a bit iffy, I think that the carp may have something else on their minds other than feeding!! Here are the results:

  1. Alex Bradley peg 15 72lb 10oz
  2. Aide Holland Peg 19 29lb 8oz

Alex tried a few different lines and tactics but found that corn and pellet down the edge was the most productive on the day. Well done Alex.

Thanks to Tony Jose for running the match while I was away and thanks to everyone who came.

Our next open is Sunday 29th May

Fir Tree Pond, Matches »

[3 May 2016 | Comments Off on Match Results Sunday 1st May | ]

This Sunday we held our open on Fir Tree Pond, by popular request! The carp were not really settled and fishing was tricky for some and the weather really didn’t help as it was wet nearly all day. I drew peg 7 and didn’t think it would produce, but it did! I had a good day in the margin at 13m feeding 6mm pellets and fishing 8mm pellets.

  1. Neil Hodder (Pictured) Peg 7 52lb 8oz
  2. Jimmy Crossley Peg 11 23lb

Thanks to everyone who came.

Our next match will be on Sunday 8th May and we will be fishing on Heron Lake! 🙂
