Fourth Points Match Sunday 2nd April 2017
Oak Tree Bottom Pond
The latest round held at Oaktree Fishery witnessed a really good turnout of 24 anglers. After what was a chilly start, the day warmed up quickly with wall-to-wall sunshine making the fishing somewhat challenging for most anglers.
The match was split into 2 sections utilising both top and bottom lakes and the results were as follows:

Continuing his recent run of form was winner Gary Butler with 13.030kg. Gary, who was centrally pegged opposite the car park, caught a kilo of silvers during the first hour on maggot and followed up with 6 carp caught over the remainder of the match. These were primarily caught on soft pellet; he did have one carp on meat.
In second place, on the next peg, was Graham Coleman with a weight of 10.200kg. Graham caught 4 decent sized carp on meat down the inside.
Third, from a peg up in the shallow end, was Anthony Vigus who managed 6.530kg comprising 2 good carp caught on meat and maggot.
Fourth place belonged to Simon Maunder who caught 6.480kg from a central peg on the car park side. Simon caught 6 carp on meat in the margin.
The distribution of points was tight in this section as there were half a dozen anglers all within a fish of each other.
