Phil's day

Hi to all, the Weds club fished its club lake Hall Farm. It was a very wet day with 18 hours of rain behind us so didn't know how the fishing was going to be. I drew peg 24 a very good peg for no real reason its not much different from most pegs. I made up 3 rigs for margins and a 10 meter line then the feeder for good measure. I baited up both margins with a groundbait and 6mm hard pellet with a bit of corn for good measure. Started off on the feeder rod and within 15 minutes it's wrapped round for my first carp this went on for another 5 carp before it died but this was only 1 hour into the match so onto the pole tried out in front at 10 meters and not a bite. So in to the margins. I was getting bites but I think they were rudd this was on pellets so I upped the size of pellet but still got mucked about so I tried 10mm punch bread. This got me 4 very small rudd not what I am after so back to the feeder - nothing so after a short while back to the margins. I put a big bit of breadflake on and just waited. Within 10 minutes got my first margin carp about 6lb then nothing again so onto my other margin the same there I alternated between the two areas for the rest of the day for a weight of 85lbs 9oz.

First was Rob Calderón with 90lbs 5oz, 2nd Phil Whitmill with 85lbs 9oz, 3rd Bill Beeston with 83lbs 14oz , 4th John Carter with 62lbs 3oz. Well done to all for putting up with such a wet day. A big thanks goes to Rob Calderón for doing all the hard stuff with the weighing in. Pic is my peg 24,
