Hi all, the Weds Club fished Hall Farm club lake. The weather was kind to us although a bit chilly to start with. I drew peg 19 - this area has not been kind to me of late seem and I seem to draw the same 3 or 4 pegs every time. I knew I would be into some carp 20 or 30 lb at most. Started off making 3 lines for the pole and a feeder for the extra distance. I fed pellet and corn with a bit of groundbait in both margins and micros and maggots at 10 meters. Started off on the feeder at 20 meters and started arranging my tray and putting bits away that I didn't need looked up as the feeder went round with carp number 1. I went on to get 3 more from the same area then nothing so onto my pole lines. Went out on my 10 meter line on 6mm pellet got a few bites from small roach but no carp. By this time it was 12.30pm so margin time - went in on my left margin and hooked one straight away. I thought here we go got a few more then nothing so on to my right - nothing. I played about there for a hour and then went back on my left margin and picked up a couple more then a string of foul hookers has left me frustrated but carried on with this margin for a couple.
I ended up with 34lbs 8oz and thanks for coming. First place John Carter with 86lbs 1oz, 2nd Terry Moranda with 67lbs 2oz, 3rd Jeff Pearson with 61lbs and 4th Bill Beeston with 55lbs 5oz . The lake fished hard but well. Pic is my peg looking down on my feeder rod.
