Another good turnout this Sunday with 24 members lining up for the all important draw. With wind and rain showers forecast everyone was keen to get set up before the weather arrived and with the new jetties on the big basin pegged this week it was going to be interesting to see what they produced. The Big Basin turned out to be best this week, with the top 3 all coming from adjacent pegs at the top end opposite the wet shed. Dennis Willis was at the end of the office buildings and had a good day with an 18lb 1oz for 1st place this week. He was followed by Andy Dicken who was on the peg to Dennis’s left where he caught 14lb 11oz for 2nd. Mark Charlwood was on the peg to the right of the winner and had 12lb 12oz for 3rd. Overall the weights were on the up with half the field having double figures and some quality skimmers and perch showing in all basins. Dave Agass had 2 good perch in his 12lb+ net on the Crane Basin with the best one weighing 2lb 8oz. So a good day was had by most and the weather improved as well. The verdict on the new jetties is they are fishable but you may have to adjust your tackle slightly to accommodate the restricted width. Next week it is the Charity Match so don’t forget it will cost you £5 extra to fish on Sunday – let’s hope the fish fish keep feeding………See you there….
