Boatyard 10 Ida Livard Cup

this weeks winner
A return to form for John Higginson – 1st place this week – all his fish were this big!
The Ida Livard Cup that John won this week. Looks like it needs cleaning regularly!

Sunday dawned this week to a grey overcast with misty rain and very light winds – nearly ideal conditions for fishing in winter. So it was with a little more optimism that 17 regular (some say certifiable) members lined up this week for the all important draw. John Higginson was on the second jetty in the Big Basin and proceeded to find a selection of net fish in the first part of the match and then kept on catching to put 11lb 7oz on the scales for a convincing win this week; making up for his previous weeks blank. Dave Agass drew last weeks winning peg at the bottom right side of the Crane Basin and, after a slightly slow start, caught regularly to weigh 8lb 15oz for second place (relieving me of yet another £1 coin). Mike Dossena had a busy day up the top right side of the Gate Basin with around 240 fish for his 8lb 13oz   which gave him 3rd place. Overall the yards fished much better this week with the fish much more spread out but still lack of the quality fish we normally see. It’s the Pairs Trophy next week let’s hope things continue to improve……. See you there
