Yesterday's match held at Little Yeo was split into 3 sections, 2 on Bobslake and 1 on Gaggs and there was identical prizemoney for each of the three sections.

Deserved winner on Gaggs was Paul Sagar from permanent peg 5 who weighed in with 7.020kg comprising mainly tench, skimmers and roach. Paul caught virtually all of his fish on pole fished maggot. In second place was Pete Davey from peg 2 with 4.300kg. Pete fished corn on long pole to the lilies with some success but then switched to maggot and caught  mainly skimmers, crucians and roach over the rest of the match. Third was Steve Manley next door on peg 3 who weighed in with 3.550kg comprising a similar mix of fish on pole fished maggot.

Section 1 on Bobslake was pegged along the dam and the winning weight from permanent peg 1 was Mike Blake weighing in with 12.850kg. Mike caught most of his carp mainly in the margins on corn and maggot. Mike was closely followed in second place by Mike Edwards who weighed in with 11.720kg. Mike was on peg 6 and again caught carp mainly in the margins but this time using paste.

Tim Vigus was a very close third with 10.820kg. Tim drew peg 5 and caught carp on mainly corn and maggot.

Section 2 on Bobslake was a very different affair, perhaps due to shallower and warmer water, the carp were in a real feeding mood and the weights increased dramatically. Winner from Island peg 14 was Mark Robinson who weighed in with 38.930kg. Mark caught the large majority of his carp on the method feeder and hard pellet. He just pipped father, Ali Robinson, by one fish who came second with 37.760kg. Ali drew peg 11 and, again, caught most of his carp using the method feeder. Third place went to Ray King from peg 9 who managed 31.850kg. Ray caught all of his carp on the pole using corn, maggot and pellet.

The next club match is in two weeks at Trinity, Bridgwater.
