Trev Dodson makes it 2 wins out of 2

So it was all change weather-wise at the yards today with a heavy frost and bright sunshine – all very seasonal – but how would it fish? The 11 entrants drew their pegs and at 10am the match got underway with some getting bites from the off and others not getting any for hours….. Christmas Eve winner, Trev Dodson swapped one end of the Basin for the other and proceeded to catch fish from the off, including a jack pike, (didn’t count) from his peg just up the right side of the Gate Basin. He put 7lb 1oz on the scales to make it 2 wins out of 2 in these festive period matches. Chris Tims was on the next peg up the right side of the Gate and caught on and off for most of the match but could only manage 6lb 12oz for 2nd place. There was another 6lb+ and several 5lb + weights so overall it didn’t fish as hard as we thought it might given the conditions but there is still very few quality fish showing in the match weights. We will just have to keep trying. Next match is Sunday 31st Jan 2017 – draw 9am fish 10am to 3pm.   See you there…….
