The weather was set fair this week with sunshine and light SW winds and all the basins LOOKED like they would all fish well – but looks can be deceiving!!! Once again the big basin was the place to draw and after complaining much about his draw in Kiddies Corner, Mike Dossena then proceeded to destroy the field with over 300 small roach for 13lb and 1st place.
Mark Charlwood drew where last weeks winner came from (but with less boats) and took a comfortable 2nd place with 10lb 5oz followed by Dave Dearman who took 3rd place from in front of the offices on the big basin with 7lb 2oz
So what of the other basins…….. they could be described as a little harder. The Gate basin everyone who fished the Gate basin caught fish – not many – but they did catch with 1lb being top weight. The people who drew the watery desert that was the Crane basin were les fortunate with only Terry Smith catching 2 small perch for 1oz!!!
On a brighter note the Charity we supported in memory of Dave Agass was The British Disabled Angling Association which, with the combined totals of the Summer Match and this winter one, was given a total donation of £285.
Also thanks to Lenny Reeves , club president, for his donation of bottles of wine for the section winners in the Christmas match. see photo of letter below.
Thanks must also go to Colin Jonas for his continued hard work running the boatyard matches through this winter and also organising the mince pies / cake / chocolates etc after this match.
