This week’s entry was down to 11 with the strong winds and lack of fish many chose not to spend their time at the yards at the moment. All the pegs were on the gate basin this week and basically you needed a boat to catch with only Pete Sutton catching in open water towards the end of the match.
The weights were still very low but there was some slight improvement in that they were made up of lots of small fish rather than one bite and one large fish (although one 3 lb bream would have been very welcome in my peg ).
Dave Edgerton won this week with 2lb 5oz and he had bites all match from his peg between 2 boats up the left of the gate basin. Ian Holmes was 2nd from the left end of the gate with 1lb 10oz and reckoned he had more bites this week than the last 5 weeks put together! Ian was also a bit unlucky as due to the low turnout only 1st place was paid out and the winner was in his section too, end result no brown envelopes!
There were 4 other catchers including the ever consistent Trev Dodson who unbelievably still hasn’t blanked this winter. He is now some 50 points clear at the top of the winter points which looks pretty safe at this stage.
Next week is the Li Livard cup…..See you there !?
PS My spies tell me that the Stalham Renegades are running matches at Old Stables till the end of the winter season contact Dave Agass for details
