Sweep Stake 3 – New Years Day 2019

Happy New Year was the most widely used phrase as the nine competitors assembled for this the 3rd and final sweepstake match over the Christmas Break. With a relatively low turnout (not too surprising) everyone was pegged on the Big Basin, which is just full of fish at the present and provided another close result with 6 out of nine breaking double figures. Ian Jones drew the 4th jetty and was always going to be hard to beat, although mid match he was complaining it was “a bit slow” he still managed to put 14lb 12oz on the scales for 1st place. Mark Harmer drew peg 1 at the top of the Basin opposite the wet shed and came in a close 2nd with 14lb 2oz and then in 3rd was Chris Tims, who couldn’t quite make it 3 in a row, with 13lb 4oz from the first jetty. A good days fishing was had by all and we will just have to see how things go once the boatyard starts working again and the boats are all moving. Keep your fingers crossed that the weights continue to be good and 2019 brings no huge fluctuations in the weather. Next Sunday (6th Jan) is the 3rd round of the Singles KO click here to see who’s against who……………..See you there
