Phil's day

Hi to all, the Weds club outing was on Beggars Hall lake today. It was going to be very hard for some as its just off a frost most mornings this week. I drew peg 17, a very good peg but not a cert as it has had a couple of blanks came this year. I made up the feeder for distance work by the island and two pole rigs for 10 meters and the left hand margin. Started off on the feeder with banded pellet not even a touch so tried corn and still nothing so on to my pole lines knowing it was still too early but nothing else was happening. I looked all over my two lines with corn and pellets to no avail so fell back on maggots to try and catch anything. I had my first bite - a roach about 4oz so continued along these lines for more rudd and roach about the same size. This went on for a couple hours and I amassed a whole 2lbs (guess weight).

At 2ish I noticed a swirled in the margins indicating a big carp had moved in so on to my margin rig and 4 red maggots as hook bait. Over I went and 10 minutes later I landed a carp of 10lbs approx. I was starting to feel better about things now. Went on my 10 meter line and hooked 2 carp but lost them both as I was on a smaller hook. Then another swirl in the margin and another 10lb carp. I could hold my head up now in the car park. Then, at 3.15, having stayed in the margin another swirling but this one was a bit picky but he went for it, another carp about 14lbs and this has now put me in the frame

1st Terry Moranda with 40lbs 12oz, 2nd Jeff Pearson with 38lbs 6oz, 3rd Phil Whitmill with 35lbs 5oz and 4th Ray Gibson with 17lbs 3oz. A well done to all on a hard day.
