Heron Lake, Matches »

[11 Sep 2017 | Comments Off on Match Results Sunday 10th September | ]

We had 10 fishing the open today on heron lake so we paid top 2 overall and 2 section winners. Anglers were well spread and so were the weights. The Golden peg was reset so there was £10 in the pot and peg 1 was drawn, Adrian Holland drew it and fancied it, but when he got there and saw the wind blowing out of it I think he knew it wouldn’t produce today. Chris Symons is continuing to draw well by pulling inform peg 5 from the bag and he fished it well for another win, here are the results:

1st Christopher Symons peg 5 77lb 13oz 
2nd Paul Glanville peg 15 57lb 9oz

Section winners
Paul Dench peg 13 47lb 13oz
Mike Bennets peg 9 47lb 11oz

Chris caught mostly at 13m towards the island on 6mm fishery pellet, well done Chris on another win.

I was pleased with catching 44lb 6oz from peg 20, especially as I missed the first half of the match to watch my son play his first football match of the season which was well worth it as they won 8-1

Thanks to everyone who came today. Our next open will be next Sunday but not sure which lake yet.

Great little match today. Numbers were down due to the weather so the decision was made to have a rover, pairs match, winning pair takes all. The pairs were blind from the draw. 1 and 3 together which was Ricky Dennis on peg 3 and Tony Jose on 17 and 2 and 4 together which was Roger Baker on peg 1 and Neil Hodder on peg 5. It was a close match and everyone had good weights:

1st Neil Hodder peg 5 115lb 2oz
2nd Ricky Dennis peg 3 99lb 8oz 
3rd Tony Jose peg 17 68lb 7oz
4th Roger Baker peg 1 66lb 1oz

Total pairs weight:
Neil and Roger 182lb 
Ricky and Tony 167lb 1oz

Nice format lads made a change to do something different and thanks for coming on such a miserable day I hope the fishing made up for the weather!

Next Sunday’s open will be on Heron Lake, please book.

The giant Gunnera leaves have started going over into the water so the island has had a good tidy up, making casting to the shallow shelf easier.

[9 Sep 2017 | Comments Off on Match Result Sunday 27th August THE £100 BONUS HAS BEEN WON | ]

Today’s match was a bit of a result for one person! We fished on heron lake and Peg 9 was drawn as the golden peg which stood at £75. Chris Symons stuck his hand in the draw bag first and no prizes for guessing what came out! We had 7 fishing today so the £100 bonus was also up for grabs. The hot, bright, still conditions were a real contrast from the wind and rain last Sunday, the fish weren’t settled and were mostly just cruising in the sun rather than feeding and Chris spent most of the day mugging fish on pellet, Here are the results:

1st Christopher Symons peg 9 102lb 1oz
2nd Adrian Holland peg 5 49lb 
3rd Roger Baker peg 1 46lb 5oz

Chris walked away with 1st place £45, golden peg pot £75 and the £100 bonus for a total of £220. Well done Chris, enjoy spending you winnings on IOS and thanks to everyone who came.

Next Sunday’s open will be fished on heron lake and the golden peg pot will restart. We will be anouncing details of our new bonus pot soon so watch this space for details. If you would like to fish next Sunday’s open please book.

Fir Tree Pond, Matches »

[9 Sep 2017 | Comments Off on Match Result Sunday 20th August | ]

Despite a wet and windy day we had 10 brave the weather and we fished on Fir Tree pond, but the going was tough. Presentation was difficult in the breezy, southerly wind and the rain all day didn’t help. On a plus note there was another £10 added to the golden peg pot which Roger Baker drew and he literally ran there, but the curse of the golden peg followed him and £68 rolls over to next Sunday. Sadly no photos today as my phone wouldn’t work in the wet, here are the results:

1st Neil Hodder peg 8 38lb
2nd Adrian Holland peg 7 29lb 8oz
3rd John Maundrill peg 15 26lb 3oz
Marc Barden won his section with a double default from peg 2 with 15lb

Thanks to everyone who came and for sitting through some rubbish summer weather. I think a new set of water proofs are top the list for one of my next, must buy’s. 
Next Sunday’s open will be on Heron lake, but please book. Also we still have space in our 2 day festival, 23rd and 24th September if you would like to fish please let me know.

Mixed fortunes in today’s match on Heron lake. We had 12 fishing, so again we paid a top 2 overall and 2 section winners. The golden peg was 18 but wasn’t won so £58 roles over to next Sunday. Fishing was a bit patchy at the start except for Adrian Holland and Nigel Taylor who we’re both catching well from the off. The breeze that got up through the afternoon definitely played a part in how some pegs fished. Tony Jose had a section win from peg 20 even though he lost approximately 50lb in the lily pads, but managed to weigh in 38lb 10oz. Overall it fished well and of note was Andy Partridge’s net of silvers that weighed 43lb 2oz, here are the results:

1st Nigel Taylor peg 9 82lb 1oz
2nd Adrian Holland peg 16 77lb 11oz
3rd Andy Partridge peg 18 69lb 3oz (section winner)
4th Neil Hodder peg 5 51lb 12oz

Well done Nigel on the win and thanks to everyone who came.

Next Sunday’s open will be on Fir Tree pond but you will need to book to fish.

We had a good turn out for today’s match and we had a junior fishing with us today so he was given the honour of drawing the golden peg and 1 came out of the bag. When Adrian Holland drew inform peg 1 he literally ran to it! But with the recent changeable weather and the rain we’ve had lately fishing was difficult and the fish were not settled. Craig Parkes was very surprised with a section win on his first open match despite only weighing 19lb, this was due to the top 2 weights coming from his section, the moral of the story, always weigh in!! And Tony Jose got back to winning ways from peg 17. Here are the results:

1st Tony Jose peg 17 66lb 10oz 
2nd John Maundrill peg 15 43lb 
3rd Neil Hodder peg 5 40lb 4oz 
4th Mike O Gorman peg 3 34lb 13oz

Tony fished a top kit in the edge with 8mm pellets for most of his catch. Well done Tony and thanks to everyone who came. 
Our next open match will be next Sunday on Heron Lake.

Fir Tree Pond, Heron Lake, Matches »

Today we had 2 matches running. The Culdrose lads were fishing on Heron lake and had a good day, with some decent weights had. We ran our open on Fir tree and it was a hard day. After 2 days of heavy rain the water was cooler and the fish were not settling. John “The Venue Expert” Maundrill was top weight, a relieved Roger Baker just squeaked a third by 4oz and Paul Glanville had the curse of the golden peg, again! Although weights were a bit down it was very close:

Fir tree pond 
1st John Maundrill peg 15 37lb 7oz 
2nd Tony Jose peg 8 25lb 12oz 
3rd Roger Baker peg 5 25lb 2oz 
4th Neil Hodder peg 12 24lb 14oz

Heron Lake 
1st Craig Parkes peg 17 65lb 5oz
2nd Tony Crocker peg 15 51lb 14oz 
3rd Kevin Waldon peg 11 47lb 10oz

Well done to John and Craig on winning your matches and thanks to everyone who came. 
Next Sunday’s open will be on Heron lake, we already have a few booked and there is £37 in the golden peg pot. If you would like to fish the next open please book.

Another close match on Heron lake today. With 10 fishing that added another £10 to the golden peg pot. Paul Glandville was lucky enough to draw it but unluckly for Paul, Heron Lake is becoming a top kit grave yard for him smashing one in three places off peg 20, up until then he was doing well.
Ricky Dennis went for a dip in peg 9 looking for a lost side tray, not sure if he found it!! And a quick mention to Roger Baker who yet again narrowly missed a section win!! Oh and Aide Holland, you need to learn to add up!! Here are the results:

1st Adrian Holland peg 17 66lb 15oz 
2nd Ricky Dennis peg 9 60lb 2oz 
Section winners 
Christopher Symons peg 3 51lb 
John Maundrell peg 15 49lb 6oz

Well done Aide on the win today, its been awhile and thanks to everyone who came.
Next Sunday’s open will be on Fir tree pond as Heron Lake is closed for a club match. 
Great days fishing with a good bunch of lads.

[9 Sep 2017 | Comments Off on Match Result Sunday 16th July | ]

We had a decent turnout for today’s match on Fir tree pond. Peg 14 was drawn as the golden peg. This was the second week of running the golden peg and on both occasions neither anglers have weighed……. so already we have £18 in the pot!!! 
I sat opposite an inform Chris Symons who caught steady all day, even though they were small fish. Nigel Taylor was sat behind me and although he had less fish he was having a better stamp and everyone thought he had won, which was why I didn’t take a picture of Chris, sorry mate. 1lb 11oz seperated the top 2 and only 4oz separated 3rd and 4th so a nice close match:

1st Christopher Symons peg 10 56lb 
2nd Nigel Taylor peg 2 54lb 3oz
3rd Adrian Holland peg 7 32lb 8oz

Well done Chris and thanks to everyone who came.

Next Sunday’s open will be on Heron lake. Don’t forget the £100 bonus is still up for grabs as well as the golden peg pot.
