A damp and dreary dawn greeted the 19 entrants for this weeks match at the yards. There was a very high tide again and with all the recent heavy rain, the water was very high, covering the boards at the end of the Gate Basin, which didn’t bode well for the fishing – again!
It was a very hard match once more this weekend with bites at a premium. Dave Dearman on peg 27, the 3rd jetty in the big basin, had 3 bream for 5lb 3oz and 1st place this week.
He was followed by Mark Harmer at the top of the Gate Basin had roach for a while before snaring a 2.5lb bream which gave him 4lb 3oz and 2nd place even though he had no more bites after the bream!
Terry Smith had 2lb 3oz on the of roach on the waggler on peg 4 to secure 3rd place.
After this there were only 2 more anglers breaking the pound and 9 DNW’S (including some who are becoming regular members of this group! I mention no names…………..)
Things can only get better – can’t they!??
