There was a change in the weather this weekend to rain showers and strong south westerly winds which many of us thought (hoped) would turn the fish on to feeding, but it was not to be. 18 anglers lined up for the draw and also to draw for their “partners” for the Pairs Trophy, see below for results.
Chris Tims made it 2 wins on the trot with 8lb 7oz of small fish from a windy peg 16 up the side of the Gate Basin.
Harry Barron found the fish again on the big basin where had 8lb for 2nd place just beating Tony Wilkinson on the next peg who had 7lb 15oz for 3rd.
The Crane basin was a bit of a mystery this week, with several large skimmers caught but no small fish! Dennis Willis won his 5 peg section with 1oz! Just 2 fish and no one else caught. In fact 5 out of 10 anglers in the Crane blanked, yet last week 1st and 3rd place came from it.
Next week is The Christmas Match so don’t forget to bring a prize for the table and let’s hope the fish are a little more spread out and eager to feed than they were this week……………………See you there…………………..
