Fishing Match Results for 2019...………

 

Saturday 10th August 2019

12 anglers turned out for the 5th match in the 2019 series this time held on Bream and Perch Lakes. The weather conditions were extreme to say the least with 50 to 60mph winds making fishing very difficult especially for the pole anglers but at least the predicted rain stayed away and the wind was still warm! Fishing was particularly hard for the anglers pegged on Perch Lake as the fish seem to prefer to Eastern bank that meant the pegged anglers had to face the high winds and only one carp was caught and in fact only two anglers on Perch Lake weighed in. 

1st Place = Gary Harris

Gary was drawn on peg 5 on Bream Lake. Like several anglers he tried to catch using his preferred pole tactics but struggled with the wind and took just one carp on the pole! It was only when he changed tactics to the feeder out in open water that he found the fish and proceeded to take a superb bag of small carp and two very big bream to weigh in 43lb 10oz!

2nd Place = Nigel Brown

Nigel had drawn peg 3 on Bream Lake and used both feeder and waggler tactics to take 5 nice carp to weigh in 14lb 2 ounces.

3rd Place = Rob Flack

Rob had drawn peg 8 on Bream Lake and used feeder tactics to weigh in 5 carp to weigh in 13lb 7oz.

Saturday 6th July 2019

14 anglers turned out for the 4th match of the 2019 season held on Canada Lake this morning in warm but dull and overcast conditions. Seemingly the carp were prepared to feed but only in snaggy areas of the lake and we estimate that in excess of 30 carp were lost in the marginal rushes. The 2nd and 3rd place anglers lost 25 carp between them both on the pole and using feeder tactics, so the result may have been very different had more of those fish been landed, but as I've said before Canada Lake carp size for size are the hardest fighting carp I've ever come across!

1st Place = Gary Setchell

Gary had drawn peg 12 and took an early carp on feeder tactics cast towards the far margin rushes. This area didn't produce any further action so he swopped to a couple of pole lines one using a 4m whip with maggots produced loads of roach, rudd and perch to bulk out his weight. Another nice carp in the final minutes of the match again on the feeder gave Gary the winning catch of 11lb 5oz.

2nd Place = Tony Allison

Tony had drawn peg 15 and being aware of the snags in this swim fished very heavy feeder and pole gear but despite this Tony lost 11 good carp with them roaring off into the rushes on either side of his swim, some of these carp just could not be stopped. Despite the lost fish Tony did manage to land two lovely carp to weigh in 10lb 11oz.

3rd Place = Fred Jackson

Fred had drawn peg 1 which is one of his least favourite pegs because he knew how difficult it is to land any carp close to the marginal rushes - and so it proved. Fred worked extremely hard to get the carp feeding but except for 2 carp that he landed he could not keep the hooked carp out of the snags. In fact he lost 14 good carp on both feeder and heavy pole gear in the snags! His two carp brought to the scales weighed 8lb 8oz for 3rd place.

Saturday 1st June 2019

17 anglers turned out for the 3rd match of the 2019 season on Canada Lake and Rainbow Pool  in lovely warm and sunny conditions with a warm South Westerly breeze - perfect conditions you would think but most anglers found the fishing very hard going. In fact only 5 carp were caught and 4 of those were in the winning catch! (A note of bad luck goes out to Jacob Harris who had drawn the new peg 15. He latched into several of Canada Lakes lunkers that proceeded to break his pole top kit that was pulled into the lake then on another fish broke a mid section of his pole!)

1st Place = Gary Setchell

Gary drew peg 1 on Canada Lake for the second match running but this time found the carp more obliging. Despite pulling out of 3 good fish he managed to land 4 nice carp on method feeder tactics to the far marginal rushes together with lots of silver fish close in on the pole to weigh in 16lb 10oz.

2nd Place = Mick Linford

Mick had drawn peg 18 on Rainbow Pool. He made the most of the room that he had and despite losing a carp at the net using feeder tactics cast along his own margin he took a single carp to weigh in 3lb 13oz.

3rd Place = Tony Allison

Tony could not find any big fish feeding in his peg 3 on Canada Lake so plugged away at the silver fish all match using light pole tactics taking roach, rudd and perch to weigh in 1lb 14oz.

Saturday 11th May 2019

15 anglers turned out for the 2nd match in the 2019 season fished on Canada lake and Rainbow Pool in much better weather conditions but the fishing was still tricky for some anglers! Also lots of Canada Lakes legendary hard fighting carp were lost that may have altered the final result.

1st Place = Mick Gould

Mick had drawn the favoured peg 14 on Canada Lake but made the most of his draw. Despite losing 8 to 10 carp using heavy feeder gear he managed to pry 4 good carp away from the rushes including a superb individual linear mirror carp of 13lb 14oz to weigh in a total of 22lb 6oz.

2nd Place = Lee Millen

Lee was drawn on peg 5 on Canada Lake. Using pole tactics to the marginal rushes he caught a small carp and lots of silvers until the end of the match when he was able to tempt a lovely common carp to weigh in 10lb 4oz and take 2nd spot.

3rd Place = Fred Jackson

Fred (or as he was called Billy no mates lol) had drawn the only peg on Rainbow Pool. Using pole tactics to catch the pools small perch until just before the end he managed to catch a margin feeding carp to weigh in 4lb 1oz and take 3rd place. This position takes Fred into the lead in the points series table!

Saturday 27th April 2019

 

18 anglers turned out for the first match of the 2019 season held on Canada Lake and Rainbow Pool and were welcomed by 'Storm Hannah' with 40-50mph winds and driving rain. These conditions made fishing very difficult for most of the anglers fishing and the weights reflected this.

1st Place = Gary Harris

Gary drawn on peg 14 on Canada Lake pole fished pellet and paste and was rewarded with 5 nice carp to weigh in 16lb 13oz.

2nd Place = Nigel Brown

Nigel was drawn on peg 1 on Canada Lake. Despite losing 3 carp and coping with the head on storm force wind managed to take 2 nice carp using feeder tactics to weigh in 7lb 7oz.

 

3rs Place = George Flack

George drawn on peg 13 on Canada Lake feeder fished the centre of the lake and took a carp and a nice bream to weigh in 6lb 9oz.

Fishing Match Results for 2018..............

The final points scores for 2018 (that is the best six points results from the seven matches) was very close right to the final match between 1st and 2nd place that as can be seen went to 1st - Tony Allison, 2nd - Fred Jackson and 3rd - Gary Setchell 

Saturday 6th October 2018

15 anglers turned out for the last match of the 2018 series held on Canada Lake and Moorhen Pool. After several days of lovely Indian summer weather it turned horrid with heavy rain and a cold Northerly wind. This made fishing difficult but those anglers that caught did well with several catches of lovely carp.

1st Place = Mick Wilson

Mick had drawn peg 14 on Canada lake and despite losing several good carp took a lovely catch of quality carp using feeder tactics to weigh in exactly 40lb.

 

2nd Place = Neil Kilsby

Neil had drawn peg 6 on Canada Lake and although he lost a couple of carp he took two very impressive common carp using method feeder tactics cast to the island to weigh in 17lb 2oz.

 

3rd Place = Fred Jackson

Fred had drawn the favoured peg 1 on Canada lake but could not find the fish in their usual lair close to the rushes. Later in the match he found that they were in open water and started to catch using feeder tactics. He finally weighed in 16lb 3oz.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Saturday 22nd September 2018

16 anglers turned out for the 6th and penultimate match of the 2018 series held on Mallard and Grebe lakes. The weather had turned quite cool and together with the rain the conditions were pretty autumnal.

As has been the case for most of the summer the weights from Mallard Lake were totally dominant taking the top four places! For the anglers drawn on Grebe Lake the fishing was very hard indeed with not a single carp caught and in fact top weight for the lake was only 7oz.

1st Place = Fred Jackson

Fred had drawn peg 24 on Mallard Lake and used pole tactics with a mixture of paste and maggots over micro pellets to take a nice bag of carp and a lovely bream to weigh in 15lb 14oz.

2nd Place = Jack Roberts

Jack had drawn an in form peg 26 on Mallard Lake and made the most of that by using feeder tactics close to the far bank tree line, taking a nice bag of small carp to weigh in 11lb 4oz.

3rd Place = Tony Allison

Tony continued a good season having drawn peg 20 on Mallard Lake and despite losing several good carp in the tree snags he managed to catch some small carp together with a few silver fish using pole tactics with various baits to weigh in 6lb 15oz.

Saturday 28th July 2018

17 anglers turned out for the 5th match of the 2018 season held on Canada Lake and Moorhen Pool. The weather conditions were very challenging with a very strong South Westerly wind causing problems particularly with bait presentation. With the recent really warm weather and form of Canada Lake it suggested that big weights of carp were on the cards, but again the carp proved awkward and were quite localised with a few anglers blanking! Interestingly although the three anglers pegged on Moorhen Pool did not make the frame they all caught carp and in fact were in 5th, 6th and 7th place.

1st Place = Nigel Brown

Nigel had drawn peg 1 on Canada Lake. He fished feeder tactics down the edge. Although he lost numerous very hard fighting carp in the rushes he managed to land 6 nice carp to weigh in 21lb 4oz.

2nd Place = Rob Rendle

Rob had drawn peg 14 right in the corner of Canada Lake. Having issues with the very strong wind he persevered with heavy pole tactics with pellet and paste and despite losing several carp in the close by rushes he landed some very nice carp to weigh in 17lb 9oz.

3rd Place = Fred Jackson

Fred drawn on peg 13 on Canada Lake used both feeder tactics to the far margin and close in pole tactics and again despite losing several carp he took 4 nice carp to weigh in 11lb 7oz.

Saturday 7th July 2018

13 anglers turned out for the 4th match of the 2018 series held on Grebe and Mallard Lakes. As you all know the weather has been extremely good for several weeks with very dry hot conditions, but this did have a big effect on the fishing especially in Grebe Lake where lots of very big carp were seen cruising around the lake and were obviously not interested in feeding! Fortunately the anglers pegged on Mallard lake had a much better time with all the anglers catching some nice bags of small carp.

1st Place = Fred Jackson

Fred was pegged on 26 on Mallard Lake that is really on form this season and had a nice session catching fish on and off for the whole match. He used several different tactics and baits including pole with paste and pellets and also feeder tactics to catch a good net full of small carp to weigh in 29lb 12oz.

2nd Place = Mick Wilson

Mick was pegged next to Fred on peg 27 on Mallard Lake and found he also had a good shoal of small carp prepared to feed on his pole fished maggots and pellets, together with a few silver fish Mick weighed in 16lb 3oz.

3rd Place = Bill Ellis

Bill was pegged on 21 tight in the corner of Mallard Lake and found a quantity of carp including a few that were not this years stock. Using pole fished maggots and pellets Bill weighed in 15lb 12oz.

Saturday 16th June 2018

19 anglers turned out for the 3rd match of the 2018 series held on Grebe and Mallard Lakes. The weather quite good but with a strong cool Westerly wind. The fishing on both lakes was equally good but several anglers who had found fish had major issues with heavy weed and tree snags and in fact almost as many carp were lost as were caught!

1st Place = Jacob Harris

Jacob was drawn on peg 11 on Grebe lake found some nice carp and a superb tench by fishing long pole tight to the island with maggots over groundbait and micro's. Jacob caught early and late in the match to weigh in 16lb 5oz.

2nd Place = Nigel Brown

Nigel had drawn peg 6 on Grebe Lake, he caught several perch using waggler float tactics but it was his ledgered pellet that caught the fish that everyone was after. Nigel took a long lean 10lb 10oz common carp that not only helped him to a 2nd place catch of 11lb 3oz but is the largest fish taken in a match so far this year!

3rd Place = Tony Allison

Tony was drawn on peg 26 a fancied area of Mallard Lake. Fishing pole tactics Tony used maggots over groundbait and micros taking 6 small carp to weigh-in 9lb 14oz.

Saturday 12th May 2018

15 anglers turned out for the 2nd match of the 2018 series but this was the first of the year held on Grebe and Mallard Lakes. The weather was very nice for fishing being dull and overcast but quite warm. Grebe Lake didn't really fish to its potential with quite a lot of tree debris in the water causing several very big carp to be lost on match gear, however for those anglers pegged on Mallard Lake it was a different ball game with most pegs producing lots of this years stock of some of the most beautiful little carp - in fact the winning weight of this match is the new venue match weight record! 

1st Place = Lee Millen

Lee was drawn on peg 26 - Mallard Lake and found he had a positive hoard of the new stock of carp in his swim and from the whistle set about plundering them with a short pole (top kit + 2) set up feeding groundbait, maggots and micros. Lee caught steadily all match to weigh in 59lb 6oz that as stated above is a new venue match record!

This is just a part of Lee's winning catch!

2nd Place = Tony Allison

Tony was drawn on peg 23 - Mallard Lake and despite a slow start on the feeder soon found a shoal of hungry 'stockies' on the pole line at 10m and once he'd scaled his pole elastic down caught steadily for the rest of the match using maggot on the hook feeding maggots and micros! Tony weighed in 43lb 7oz.

3rd Place = Neil Kilsby

Neil was drawn on peg 27 at the top of Mallard Lake in the next peg to Lee. Neil used an unusual method of fishing a pellet waggler set up to be able to fish a far bank bay but at full depth which is where a shoal of 'stockie carp' were feeding. Using maggot Neil caught over 20 to weigh in 33lb 4oz.

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Saturday 21st April 2018

19 anglers turned out for the first match of the 2018 season held on Canada Lake and Moorhen Pool. The weather conditions were very bright, sunny and warm. Recent form particularly on Canada Lake suggested that big weights of carp were on the cards, but the carp proved to be quite localised and quite a few anglers blanked!

1st Place = John Hayes

John had drawn peg 14 tight in the corner of Canada Lake and despite losing several good carp in the close by snags he managed to land a good selection of the new stock and some older bigger carp on standard open end and block end feeder tactics to weigh in 25lb 6oz.

2nd Place = Rob Rendle

Rob had drawn peg 15 that was on Moorhen Pool. Despite the very clear water conditions Rob managed to find the carp quite close in on the near shelf and caught using pole tactics with maggots taking a good net of carp to weigh in 14lb 3oz.

3rd Place = Gary Setchell

Gary had drawn peg 17 in the corner of Moorhen Pool and even though the water clarity was making the carp very wary with the wind blowing into his corner Gary found some carp prepared to intercept maggots on the drop! Gary took four beautiful little carp to weigh in 7lb 2oz.
