Mark weighed 55lb 8oz well done Mark. 3rd was  Mr consistent Mark Charlwood. Mark caught on the feeder once the ducks moved from his peg. Mark caught some nice carp and two nice ducks!?.

Round 13 today was on the Bungalow lake at Reepham. The weather this week was warm with sunny spells but quite breezy. 16 members arrived this week hoping they would draw the flyer. Alex Watson was this weeks winner, Alex fished peg 15 and weighed 52lb 7oz. Alex caught all his fish down the edge, well done Alex. 2nd place was Trevor Dodson. Trevor fished peg 8 and caught well near the end to finish with 43lb 13oz. 3rd place was Mark Charlwood. Mark fished peg 7 and weighed 37lb 5oz well done Mark. Everybody had some fish but it didn’t fish that good. I’m sure it will get better with time once the new F1’s put some weight on.

Round 12 today took us to the Old Stables North Walsham. 14 members again for this one which was a full house. With the forecast looking good everyone was keen to start. Dave Edgerton stole the show this week from peg 14 in the corner. Dave caught some small carp early on, but later moved to the edge and caught better carp for the rest of the Match(they don’t call him the edge for nothing). Dave weighed a very good 70lb 12oz well done Dave. 2nd this week was Mark Charlwood who improved from last weeks torture. Mark caught shallow for most of the day and finished with 63lb 8 oz from peg 15. 3rd place was the lucky Kevin Lawson. That’s 3 frames in a row. Kevin fished peg 6 which is normally the peg you don’t want so well done to him. Kevin caught steadily all day and weighed 49lb 12oz. Would just like to mention that Dave Agass got very close today to getting his first pound from me this summer but I had a late run of fish to just pip him again.

Round 10 of the summer series today was held at Holly Farm South Walsham. 20 members turned out for this one. Every peg except one was in. With the weather much warmer than of late it look like being a good day (if you drew the right peg).With everybody ready, it was time to see who had all the fish. This week saw Mark Harmer climb 2 places from third to first, Mark fished peg 15 on the far side and caught steadily for the first 2 and a half hours with one zoo creature weighing 15lb 4oz then only caught 3 more fish. Mark weighed 43lb 12oz. Well done Mark. 2nd place this week goes to last weeks winner Kevin Lawson. Kevin fished peg 6 and caught fish all day and weighed 37lb 12oz. 3rd this week was Mark Seaman. Mark fished peg 3 and caught for most of the day and weighed 33lb 14oz.(you can’t keep him down for long). Everybody else had some fish but it’s still way short of what it used to fish like.

Melton Ponds 4 – Sunday 14-5-17

Melton Ponds No 4 gave up 118lb to the winner

Round 9 today in the summer series was at Melton Pond 4.  14 members made the long drive this week. The weather this week was for rain first then nice sunshine and that’s how it pans out. The sun was definitely shining on this weeks winner. Kevin Lawson was celebrating his birthday and the fish came to the party too. Kevin fished peg 14 on the far side and weighed a very good 118lb dead.That’s what you call a birthday, well done Kevin, even if you did put them back before I had taken a photo! 2nd place this week was Terry Smith. Terry was fishing peg 12 in the far side and caught some nice carp for 39lb 12oz. Well done Terry. 3rd place was Mark Harmer again. Mark fished peg 2 on the car park side and weighed 36lb 8oz. There was 4 D.N.W’s this week but everyone else caught some fish. Dave Edgerton done his usual walk round because he couldn’t get a bite and ended with 6. Maybe we should all try his tactics.

Sunday 7th May Reepham Bungalow Lake

Round 8 of the summer series took us to Reepham. This is a new venue on our summer calendar. 20 members turn out for this one, the most so far. With the weather being a little chilly and the match weights a little low from the Saturdays match, every one was a little unsure what it would fish like. Never the less it was time to see who would be on the fish. As it turned out it was Dennis Willis who had all the fish, and ran away with it. Dennis fished peg 29 and weighed a very good 92lb 2oz for first place. 2nd place goes to Mr Mark Charlwood. Mark fished peg 9 and weighed 61lb 2oz. 3rd place goes to Mark Harmer. Mark drew the flyer (so the owner said) so I guess I messed it up. Mark fished peg 27 and weighed 34lb 6oz. Everybody caught fish but it was not as good as we thought it would be. Roll on the summer.

Round 7 today was held at Bartles Lodge in Elsing. With the very cold week nobody was sure how it would fish. 13 members made the long trip this week. With the draw done it was the venue expert Alex Watson who won this week. For once Alex was not on peg 4 instead he drew peg 10. Alex had a very slow start but really finished strong and ended up weighing 115lb 6oz. 2nd place was Mike Dossena. Mike caught fish from the of for most of the match but it slowed down in last hour and half. Mike weighed 107lb 4oz from peg 12 unlucky Mike. 3rd was the draw specialist Mark Seaman. Mark fished peg 11 and weighed 78lb 13oz. Well done to them. Overall it fished quite well. Sorry about the photo bomber on the photo. Next week it of to Reepham. See you all there.

Round 6 of the summer series today was at The Old Stables in North Walsham. 14 members turned up so it was a full house. The weather was a little overcast so hopefully the fish would bite. Once again it was the in-form Mark Seaman who ran away with this one. Mark fished peg 8 on the far side and caught fish from the off all day, and ended weighing 52lb 2oz. Well done Mark again. Can anyone stop him. 2nd place this week goes to Mr Mark Charlwood. Mark dropped down a place this week. Mark fished peg 6 ( his favourite) and weighed 28lb 4oz. Well done Mark. 3rd place goes to Mark Harmer. Mark fished peg 15 and weighed 27lb 4oz. So it was quite close between them but not even close to the winner. As for everybody else it was a reasonable days fishing. John Hehir caught the biggest fish of the day weighing 13lb plus but unfortunately after that he struggled for bites. Unlucky John.
