Boatyard 22 The Ludham Cup – Sunday 3rd March 2019

Mark Charlwood wins this week with 13lb 14oz

After the last 2 weeks warm and sunny conditions, this Sunday the weather reverted to more normal wind and rain, and it was forecast to last all day (which it did). But, on the plus side, the change of weather definately improved the fishing with no blanks this week! Mark Charlwood drew the 3rd jetty in the big basin and was facing the wind. He was a pre-match doom merchant claiming that the fish had all gone out of the yards. He was pleasantly surprised then, when he caught 4 big skimmers plus perch and roach to put a winning 13lb 14oz on the scales. Dave Gipson was on peg 3 (last weeks winning peg) in the Crane basin where he caught steadily to weigh in 12lb of mainly roach for 2nd place. John Higginson on peg 6, also on the Crane, had 10lb 4oz for 3rd.
Mr. Charlwood’s win returns him to the top of the winter points table giving him the Sutton Cup by 1 point ahead of me. Just wait till October Mark – I’ll be back……. (full winter points table here). Mark also becomes overall (summer & winter) club champion for 2018 -19 and really is the most consistent angler in the club ( you can pay me for all the nice words later Mark) Next week is the last boatyard match – lets hope that we end on a high with good fishing for all. Thanks must go, as always, to Colin Jonas for all his stirling work organising and running the matches (and the club) this past winter I think you will agree it has all gone very smoothly and with some great weights and plenty of laughs. Roll on the summer series…….See you next week
