Another grey and damp day greeted the 20 competitors for this weeks match. The forecast was for rain all day but it actually wasn’t quite as bad as predicted – and much better than last week. The Crane basin was the place to be once again with Derbyshire interloper, aka Steve Wilkinson, coming out in first place with 10lb 12oz from peg 6 on the crane. He only just beat Alex Watson, who had a busy day on the gate basin catching small roach at 13m for 10lb 11oz and 2nd. Another double figure weight for John Higginson at peg 1 took 3rd place with 10lb 5oz but the big perch he lost at the net would have been a big bonus.
Overall there were 4 double figure weights and 11 anglers had over 6lb so although not fantastic, there are fish to be caught.
Spare a thought for Trev Dodson who had the benefit of a fantastic demonstration of “high speed mooring” right on his peg – don’t know how he then managed to get 10lb 4oz. I reckon he just put his landing net in and scooped up the fish after they were dazed by the boat wash.
Never mind it all adds to the entertainment……… See you next week…..
So we are off with he winter series of matches at the boatyards. Mr Burton was the clear winner this week from his peg on the Crane Basin where he caught 10lb 9oz. Tony Wilkinson was 2nd from his peg at the end of the Crane with 8lb 13oz and Mark Seaman was 3rd from his peg next to the winner with 8lb 6oz. So the Crane was the place to be this opening Match but who knows how things can change over the coming weeks and once the big basin is in the mix. Next week is the David King Bowl – See you there
The final round of Stalham and district A.C.summer series was at Martham pit B 17 members turned up this week dreaming of catching a lot of big fish and winning, though the weather forecast was for heavy showers and possible thunder.
Mark Seaman was the winner weighing 34lb. Second
place goes to Tony Wilkinson marking his return from Africa who
weighed 25lb 10oz which was a mix of small and large bream.
Third place was Trevor Dodson who weighed 22lb
Well done to them three!
It fished really hard for everybody else.
Congratulations goes to Mark Harmer who was this
year’s winner of the summer points!
I’d like to say on behalf of all the members who
fished the summer a really big thank you to Dave Agass for all his
hard work organising all the matches.
The Old Stables North Walsham was the venue this week. 14 members made the trip meaning it was full house. The forecast was for sunshine but we had a little rain and even thunder.
With the level of water in the lake being rather low everyone expected a hard day fishing.
Jon Burton was fishing peg 15 and caught steadily all day for his first win of the summer weighing a very good 63lb 19oz.
Well done Jon!
Second place fishing peg 12 was Mark Harmer who had a fun day trying to pull carp from the lilies and successfully weighed 47lb 13oz. Good job Mark!
Third place fishing peg 16 was Mark Charlwood. He caught some nice carp and weighed 33lb 2oz. Well done Mark!

14 members made the trip today to see if they can win this competition. The weather was sunny and quite warm with
strong wind which would make fishing rather difficult. At the
draw bag Mark Seaman pulled peg 1 out and everyone thought they were
fishing for second place. But unluckily for him Dave Agass had different
plans. He was fishing peg 8 and ran out the winner
with a total weight of 39lb 8oz . Well done Dave! ( everyone wants to know what they gave you in hospital
Second place goes to John Higginson who
was fishing peg 6 and weighed 27lb 8oz which included one carp which was
over 10lb. Well done John!
