Boatyard 19 – Sunday 18th February 2018

Dave Dearman makes it 4 wins so far this winter

Another week, another grueller! Hard frost and bright sun conspired to produce another diabolically low weight match for the 18 hardcore idiots who ventured out again this week. Mind you everything is relative and there were ONLY 5 blanks this week ( and I wasn’t one of them – just!). Dave Dearman continued his  outstanding winter form with his fourth win, this week from the right hand end of the Gate Basin with an all conquering 4lb 9oz. Mike Brown was up the left side of the Gate Basin where he caught 2lb 4oz for 2nd place and he was closely followed by John Burton with 2lb dead who was on the next peg back towards the end of the Gate. So the Gate Basin was THE draw. The Crane Basin was a graveyard yet again with 1oz winning one section and 0.5oz winning the other!!! (mind you guess who won his section with 0.5oz Initials T.D. – I say no more…) I had a slightly better week, having drawn exactly the same peg as last week, I had two and a half bites and one tiny little perch – fantastic. I can’t wait for next weeks dose of pain, maybe the Gods will make a mistake and let me catch some fish again……….See you there
