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.

Cobbleacre was the venue for round 4 this week. With the fishery having problems with the normal match lake we had to fish the road side lake. 12 members turned up and hoped it would be their week. With a very hot day forecast it was time to see who would come out on top. Taking top spot this was Mark Seaman, Mark fished peg 8 and had a slow start but caught steadily through the middle of the match to weigh 20lb dead. Well done Mark. 2nd place was Tony Wilkinson. Tony fished peg 11 on the far side and caught carp and silvers for 14lb 4oz. Well done Tony. 3rd this week goes to Mark Harmer. Mark fished peg 5 and weighed 11lb 12oz of Carp and silvers.

Sunday 2nd April 2017 Glen Farm, Metton

Round 3 this week took us to Glen Farm Metton. Another good turn out this week with 14 members lining up at the draw bag. With everyone ready and the bacon roll ordered it was time to see who would be the lucky one this week. Mike Dossena drew peg 6 and caught midway through the match to finish first with a weight of 20lb dead. 2nd place was Mark Harmer who drew peg 8 which is a good peg but I fluffed my lines with 4 lost carp early in the match so only weighed 12lb 12oz. Mr Mark Seaman came in 3rd with 9lb 9oz. It was a real struggle for everybody else.
