Boatyard 2 – David King Bowl

13th October 2019

Steve Wilkinson made the drive from Derbyshire worthwhile winning this week with 10lb 12oz

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…..

Boatyard 1 – 6th October 2019

Jon Burton – starts the winter with a win

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
