Twelfth Points Match Sunday 17th September 2017
The 12th and final club points match of the season was held at Lakeside yesterday and, as expected, this turned out to be a grueller for the 17 anglers that took part. Partly through the heavy recent rains coupled with the current low stock levels of silvers, weights generally comprised of perch with the odd bigger fish putting in an appearance.
Winner on the day with a weight of 8.200kg, from permanent peg 8, was Eric Priest who landed an 18lb common carp. Eric fished a small feeder to the submerged bar, successful hookbait was pellet.
In 2nd place with 2.300kg was Pete Davey from peg 7 who pole fished meat early on to catch 2 crucian carp. Pete also managed to catch several perch on maggot over the rest of the match.
3rd spot went to Gary Butler from peg 22. Gary pole fished maggot up against a lily bed and managed a small carp and 17 perch plus one roach to finish with a weight of 2.080kg.
Ist Ben Peek Peg 3 1.700kg. Bream on maggot feeder in last hour.
2nd John Hill and Ian Brooks tied with 1.300kg. John had an all perch catch, Ian's catch included a 2lb tench.
Ist Mark Robinson Peg 25 0.700kg Perch on pole fished worm.
2nd Paul Frost and Phil Tucker tied with 0.340kg. Again, comprising small perch.
In a highly contested season, the top 12 anglers ( best 9 from 12 points) now look forward to the sponsored club match final which is to be held at Oaktree ( bottom pond) in a fortnight on October 1st. Please contact either Mike Edwards or Eric Priest early if you are unable to attend so that replacements can be sorted ( working down the final points list in order).
