4th Points 16th May 2021 Lakeside
Sunday's match at Lakeside was a sell out with all 28 permanent pegs coming into play; this, inevitably, led to a hard match where bites were at a premium and missing one proved costly on the day. The match comprised 3 sections and everyone hoped for a feature peg at the draw.
Winner on the day from fancied peg 15 was Eddie Evans with 9.340kg. Eddie fished tight to the lilies all match and caught 2 good carp plus a big bream together with a kilo of roach and perch. Winning method was double maggot/pinkie over a little ground bait. Well done Eddie for your 2nd straight win of the season !
Runner up from the adjacent peg 14 was Mike Blake with 7.810kg. Mike fished the pole at 11m and caught 3 big bream plus some bits all on triple maggot using a size 16 hook to 0.11 hook length. After an initial feed of ground bait he fed a further small ball of groundbait every hour. Well done Mike !
3rd on the day was Jez Rostron from peg 16 with 6.800kg. Jez's catch comprised 2 bream, 1 carp and a tench fishing double maggot tight to the lilies over groundbait. He caught everything on a size 16 hook to 0.15 hook length via blue hydro elastic. Nice one Jez !
4th spot went to Paul Elworthy from peg 10 on the point with 5.650kg. Paul fished the pole at 11m and caught a bream plus half a dozen skimmers using maggot over ground bait. He started on a size 16 hook but later dropped down to an 18 and 4 elastic and duly caught his big bream in the last hour. Well done Paul !
