Melton Pond 4 – Sunday 21st July 2019

Not sure what’s occurring here!? looks like a bit of celebrating for 1st and 2nd

18 members made the trip this week which was another really good turn out. The weather was very warm again with just a little bit of wind and as always everybody was looking forward to a good day’s fishing. With the draw done it was time to fish. Unfortunately, the fish didn’t want to be caught today in most areas. As normal the top weights were very good but the backup weights were rather poor for this time of the year.

Once again it was Mark Seaman coming out on top with a total weight of 61lb 8oz. Mark was fishing peg 15.

Second place goes to Alex (The Bandit) Watson. He was fishing peg 1 and weighed 59lb 4oz.
