Today was round 10 of our winter league. After a week of milder weather and catches improving through the week I was hoping to see some better weights in today’s match but the strong north westerly wind really made the going difficult for most. Alex Bradley was the exception who sat into the wind all day but caught well!! Here are the results:

Heron Lake
1st Alex Bradley peg 15 67lb 10oz (Pictured)
2nd Roger Baker peg 4 26lb 2oz
3rd Mike Bennets peg 11 17lb 9oz

Fir tree pond

  1. Roger Baker peg 14 42lb 9oz
  2. Neil Hodder peg 3 32lb

Well done Roger.

I thought Ricky Dennis on peg 11 was a banker but it didn’t produce on the day. Roger Baker saw off all the competition on Fir tree pond after drawing sock-on peg 9!! Here are the results:

Heron Lake:
1st Jimmy Crossley peg 4 51lb 10oz
2nd Tony Jose peg 15 32lb 5oz

Today’s weather sorted the men from the boy’s!!! But as it turned out it was a dry day just a bit blustery. We fished on Heron Lake and I put peg 10 in today for a change and was well chuffed when it was the last peg left in the bag! Despite the strong wind it fished well, here are the results :

1st Neil Hodder peg 10 54lb 14oz
2nd Paul Glanville peg 4 41lb 10oz
3rd Chris Symons peg 9 31lb 4oz

I caught most of my fish down the right hand margin on bread and some smaller fish at 5m in deep water on 6mm pellets.

Thanks to everyone who fished and braved the weather.

2nd Alex Bradley peg 11 38lb 9oz

[5 Mar 2017 | Comments Off on Mid Week Match Result Wednesday 8th February | ]

Today we had a mid week match on Heron Lake. The weather was beautiful, like a spring day and the result was a close one. I drew peg 9 and was well happy, Roger Baker drew 15 and subsequently spat out his dummy! I started dobbing bread at 12 metres down the right hand margin which is usually a banker, but after 30 mins and1 foul hooked fish realised they weren’t their! I caught a few at four sections on 6mm pellet and on the pellet feeder to the far side but could see Roger catching well and knew he was in front. With 20 mins to go fish turned up down the edge and I had a 6lb fish at the whistle! Here’s the results:

1st Neil Hodder peg 9 36lb 8oz
2nd Roger Baker peg 15 35lb 8oz
3rd Paul Glandville peg 19 21lb 12oz

Really nice day with a good bunch of lads. Thanks to everyone who came.
