Fifth Points Match Sunday 23rd April 2017
The venue for the latest clubbie held yesterday was on Longs lake at Summerhayes, Bridgwater.
A big thanks goes to Pete and his team for laying on a hearty breakfast for those who wanted it, thanks guys. Also thanks to Gary and Steve for pegging out the match so that the 21 anglers who fished found plenty of water in which to work.
Conditions started off chilly, but it soon warmed up with the sun coming out and after the first hour or so the anglers generally found the going challenging.
Winner on the day from permanent peg 14 with a weight of 28.710kg was Eric Priest who caught 23 carp and a few tench on meat mainly in the margins. He was closely followed in 2nd place by Paul Ware from peg 38 who weighed in with 26.960kg. Paul fished a long pole to the island and caught steadily throughout the match using mainly corn over ground bait. Third place went to Steve Manley from peg 5 with a weight of 23.050kg. Steve again fished a long pole to the island with corn over micro pellet and took carp steadily throughout the match.

Section A 1st Paul Elworthy 16.610kg peg 16 ( mainly fishing hard pellet feedered off the island )
2nd Pete Davey 12.950kg peg 12 ( caught mainly fishing pellet waggler off island )
