Good morning to all, the Weds club fished it 3rd round of the summer league at Bbeggars Hall club lake. I drew peg 13 - I have not fished it for a long time so not sure what to expect. Now the lily pads are up and flowering it gave me some features to fish to so I made up two lines - one at 12 meters and one at 7 meters.
I fed pellet and corn on my longest line and maggots and micro pellets on my short line and a feeder to 18 meters just to the very tip of the lily pads. Well the feeder produced absolutely nothing all morning couldn't believe I could not get a bite on red maggots not even a micro perch. On to plan f dobbing bread at 12 meters about 12 inches deep. This produced 3 good carp and I got beaten up on 3 more - one lost carp went straight through the pads and appeared on the opposite. At 15 or so pounds so he was never coming back the way he went - I got my rig back minus hooklength.
First place Fred Hunt with 49lbs 12oz (less a fish of about 7lb that leapt out the keepnet), second Bill Beeston with 41lbs 5oz , third Tony Cruci with 29lbs 11oz and fourth Phil Whitmill with 24lbs 14oz. Well done to all in sticking it out through such high temperatures.
