7th Points 3rd June 2018 Trinity
17 anglers turned out for yesterdays club match held on Woodlands lake at Trinity fishery. With blue skies and little breeze, conditions were going to be hot and sticky and vitals such as suncream, umbrellas and plenty of drinking water were going to be the order of the day. After a really slow start, the carp gradually began to dominate proceedings and most anglers ended up with a few at the final whistle whilst the top placings had a bumper day as results show below.
Top spot went to, in-form angler with back to back wins, Gary Butler, from permanent peg 16 who weighed in with 32.490kg. Gary caught 10 carp and 10 decent sized skimmers caught mainly in the margins, most of these came on meat or corn with 4 caught on banded pellet fished well off bottom.
2nd place went to Ben Hathaway from peg 30 near the footbridge who weighed in with 25.170kg. Ben pole fished the paste at 6m and landed some real lumps amongst his fine catch.
Simon Maunder completed the top trio from peg 25 with an all carp catch of 21.400kg. Simon was fishless for the first half of the match but the carp appeared in the margins from mid match onward and he then made up for lost time with some real lumps, one of which weighed over 8kg. Successful bait was 10mm pellet.
