Boatyard 20 – Singles KO final – Sunday 24th February 2019

Chris Tims wins this week with 11lb 9oz

With the weather very similar to last weekend (ie bright sun very warm and light winds) a hard day was expected by most of the 19 competitors fishing this week. There were less blanks than last week, but overall the weights were low with most people scratching for bites. There is always someone who has to spoil the “low weight party” and this week it was Chris Tims (again) who sat on peg 8 on the Crane Basin and had a very nice day, catching throughout the match, to put a winning weight of 11lb 9oz on the scales. In 2nd place was John Hehir from peg 22 in the Big Basin with 6lb 1oz and in 3rd was Alex Watson on the first Jetty with 4lb 13oz . The Singles KO final between Jon Burton and Mark Charlwood became a one fish shoot-out with both catching 1 skimmer and Jon came out the winner with 1lb 3oz against Mark’s 12oz fish. The top of the winter points table changed round once again with Chris’s win taking him into the lead, but it could be any of the top 3 who run out winners after next weeks match, let us hope for a change in the weather which might improve the fishingand get the fish feeding in all areas again. Despite the last two weeks being on the hard side (although last week had the best catch of the season) this winter has seen the Yards bounce back to form after a couple of poor years, with the return of some quality roach, skimmers and perch and very consistent sport around all 3 basins, let’s hope it continues and we are now at the start of a run of “good years” again. Last points match next week – The Ludham Cup – ……………See you there
