12th Points 20th September 2020 Lakeside
The final points match of the season was held yesterday at Lakeside with 22 anglers turning out to do battle. With bright sunshine and a brisk Easterly, the fishing was not going to be easy and, indeed, for many the going was extremely tough. It was the final hour of the match when big fish decided to put in an appearance which decided the top placings; indeed, winner on the day, from peg 6, was Dom Garnett with two late double figure carp, the 2nd of which came in the last fifteen minutes. Winning weight was 12.475kg and successful method was pole fished maggot to the lilies using size 12/14 elastic and a small but strong hook. Well done Dom !
Runner up on the day from just opposite on peg 7 was Phil Tucker with 5.425kg. Phil, again, caught most fish on pole fished maggot or worm to the lilies and his catch comprised 2 carp, 1 tench plus several skimmers and perch. Well done Phil !
3rd on the day from peg 13, was Gary Butler with 3.525kg. Gary fished a long pole and caught 4 skimmers and a perch on worm but then, in the last hour, caught a bream to take him right up into 3rd spot. Well done Gary and welcome back mate after your recent break !
1st Gary Marshall 0.975kg
2nd Steve Manley 0.775kg
1st Phil Maddens 3.275kg
2nd Steve Plumridge 2.750kg
Big congratulations to Mike Edwards for sealing victory yesterday with 2.350kg and 8 club points and thus becoming club champion for 2020. Well done Mike, it certainly is a hard earned trophy !
The club's grand finale this year will be held at Summerhayes ( Longs ) on 18th October and is open to all those who fished 5 club points matches ( this is a change from the norm owing to the matches cancelled mid year due to covid ). Please ensure you are booked in with the match secretary asap.
