Boatyard 4 – The Hickling Shield 27th October 2019

Trevor Dodson wins with 10lb 14oz

What a difference a week makes.With sunny weather forecast this weeks match attracted a bumper entry of 27 members meaning Colin had to include a section on the far side of the big basin to cope with the numbers.

Trevor Dodson drew exactly the same peg as he had last week, left hand end of the Gate Basin, and wasn’t too optimistic after he struggled last week for 5lb. But he was pleasantly surprised to find the fish had returned to the Gate and he put 10lb 14oz on the scales to win this week. Trevor just pipped Roger Farmer who was next to him on the right hand end of the Gate and had 10lb 11oz for 2nd. Dennis Willis was in Kiddies Corner on the Big Basin where he caught 10lb 9oz for 3rd. So, the Crane basin didn’t produce a frame weight this week, and the fish seem to be more evenly spread out, hopefully some more of the quality fish will move in as the boat activity slows down in the yards for the winter.

Unluckiest angler this week has to be Denny Hammond who managed to drop his keep net in at the end of the match and lost virtually all his catch I think the air turned black as he realised what had happened.

Next week we have the Big Basin fully pegged as well so lets hope we see some good results from all areas. See you there…………..
