Boatyard 17 – Singles KO 4th Rnd – Sunday 4th February 2018

It’s that man AGAIN – Trevor Dodson first place  this week

Cold conditions with a strengthening North Easterly wind and wintry showers greeted the 15 competitors in this weeks match. and if you didn’t draw right this week it was a gruelling days fishing for very little return. However if your name is Trevor Dodson you have no such worries…. You draw next to the boat at the bottom end of the big basin where you have calm water to fish in and you happily bag up for the duration of the match to continue your excellent run of form and put 7lb 6oz on the scales for 1st place just one place better than last week. (Me jealous? NO. I was about 150 yards further up the big basin where it was more like the north sea and you couldn’t hold your pole,  fishing for 5hrs for 2oz! Wonderful!!!) Second place this week was from the Crane Basin where Mike Brown found some fish to put  a level 7lb on the scales. Dennis Willis was on the right hand end of the Gate Basin and had fish from the off to end up with 4lb 11oz for 3rd. Overall though it was pretty dire with over half the field failing to break 1lb 8oz and in my illustrious section it was looking all very close in low ounces right up to the last half hour when the inimitable Mr John Burton snared a skimmer on his feeder and took the section with an unbeatable 13oz!!! The Singles final will be between Dennis Willis and Trevor Dodson to be fished on 25-2-2018. for results click here. I don’t know what is forecast for next weekend but let’s hope it is NOT more of the same…..See you there
