There was a bigger turnout for this weeks match with 26 (eventually) anglers lining up around 2 basins and yet again the Crane basin was the place to draw. Mark Harmer cruised to his first win of the winter from peg 5 putting 9lb 13oz of small fish on the scales. Dave Edgerton was 2nd from peg 3 with 8lb 8oz which included 2 large perch (see photo) . Then in 3rd was Mark Charlwood from peg 7 with 6lb 13oz on the right hand end of the Crane. Pity those 12 poor people who drew the Gate basin! 5 blanked and only 1 (Trev Dodson – had to be didn’t it) broke 5lb. It certainly felt like a long 5hrs for some of us.
Anyway, looking forward to next week as things can only get better – can’t they??? Then in 2 weeks we can attack the big basin – and struggle in there too!!!! See you there………………….
