Martham B Pit Sunday 29th April 2018

Mr Consistent AKA Mark Charlwood wins on a very hard day at Martham B Pit

Round 7 of the summer series (if you can call the weather summer). Today we travelled to Martham pits, to fish B pit. 19 members turned up for this one even a certain Mr Chris Tims turned out! For most people it was the first time at this venue. With the draw done and the rain starting to fall we were of to see you would be victorious this week. The lake fished very hard today with quite a few D’N’W’s. This weeks winner was the most consistent man in the club Mark Charlwood. Mark drew the flyer peg 17 and weighed a very good 28lb 12oz on a very hard day. 2nd place and next peg 18 was Trevor Dodson. Trevor caught a mixed bag of carp and bream to weigh 17lb 8oz. 3rd was the other lucky Mark in the club Mark Seaman. Mark fished peg 3 and weighed 15lb 2oz. Well done to them 3. The only other double figure weight was Matt Jefferys who had 13lb dead from peg 9 thanks to a last minute carp on his roach rig and double maggot!

Bartles Lodge – Sunday 22nd April 2018

The pretty and prolific Bartles Lodge Fishery

Round 6 of the summer series comes from Bartles Lodge, Elsing. 15 members made the trip this week,and with a very warm day forecast everyone was expecting a few bites. And it turned out that everyone had a few bites for a change. This weeks winner was Mark Seaman. Mark fished peg 7 and caught steady all day for a very impressive 160lb. 2nd was venue expert Alex(the bandit)Watson who was fishing peg 9 and weighed just short of the ton with 94lb 4oz. And 3rd goes to Mark Charlwood, who else, as he always in the frame. Mark caught 81lb 8oz. There were some good back up weights also this week. On a serious note now, as a club we need to get the weights right in the nets as we had 2 weights over the owners limit. We need to correct this if we want to carry on fishing this very pretty and prolific fishery.

The the forecast set to be very warm and everyone was little upbeat but as normal the sun never came out all day, but it did stay dry. The winner this week was the bandit himself Alex Watson. Alex only pulled peg 5 out of the bag which is the flyer, and caught through out the day to weigh 23lb 8oz which is quite a low weight if you remember what this place used to fish like. 2nd goes to Mr Consistent Mark Charlwood. Mark fished peg 21 which is normally a bad area but he had a run of nice carp down the edge near the end to weigh 20lb 12oz. 3rd place goes to Dennis Willis who also caught fish down the edge and weighed 15lb 12oz. The weights are still quite low. We need the sun to shine.
