11th Points 23rd August 2020 Upper Tamar Lake
23 anglers turned out for yesterday's club match which was held on Upper Tamar and it was the feeder that prevailed on the day due to the very strong West wind which was blowing straight into the Devon bank. The match was pegged from peg 1, right up the arm, back to peg 23 near the dam and the top 3 weights on the day came from the first half dozen pegs.
Top weight on the day from peg 2 was Paul Elworthy who weighed in with 15.575kg. Paul fished a big feeder at 35yds and caught small skimmers regularly throughout the day plus a bonus 3lb vegetarian perch. Top bait was single corn fished on a size 14 hook, hair rigged. Paul used 5 tins of corn in total capped with groundbait. Congratulations Paul !
Runner up, from peg 6, was Chris Morris with 13.400kg. Chris started on the feeder but then switched to a 4m whip and caught good roach and skimmers right away using 2 or 3 pinkies on a size 16 hook, feeding small balls of groundbait constantly throughout. Well done Chris !
3rd spot went to Stuart Burridge from peg 4 with 12.900kg all caught on the feeder at 58yds. Stuart fished the corn on a size 14 hair rig and fed 4 tins of corn plus 3lb of groundbait during the 6 hours.
Nice one Stuart !
4th place went to Mike Edwards from peg 15 with a weight of 11.800kg. Mike, again, fished the feeder
in conjunction with sweetcorn on a size 14 hook. He used 4 big tins of corn, most of which went in at the start, and caught small skimmers steadily throughout the match. Well done Mike !
