Xmas Sweep 1 Thursday 27th December 2018

Chris Tims wins Xmas Sweep 1 with 15lb 11oz

Almost perfect weather conditions for winter fishing greeted the 13 anglers who came to fish this, the first of the extra Xmas matches at the boatyards. Arranged to give some relief from the Christmas festivities for all of us that need our angling “fix” as often as possible. With the Crane Basin still out of sorts it was decided to fish on just the Big Basin and the Gate Basin. An in -form Chris Tims drew peg 12 one down from the top of the Big Basin where he managed to snare 15lb 11oz of roach perch and skimmers for 1st place followed by Ian Jones who was 2 pegs further down the Big Basin, and Alex Watson who was all on his own on the end of the Gate Basin, these two shared 2nd place with 14lb 12oz each. The fishing was pretty consistent with over half the field catching double figures and without “pike trouble” the weights would have been even better. Next match is Sunday at normal time (book in by 7.45am) and with similar weather forecast, it should be another good day……..See You There………….No results sheet this time (it is in Mark C’s Car)
