A good Morning to all, the Weds club fished its club match at Hall Farm. There was a good turn out so some not so good pegs were in the bag. I drew peg 26 a very good peg but very shallow water and this cold snap will have an effect.
I made up two lines: one at 10 meters; one in the margins; and, of course, the feeder for next to the weed beds. I fed micro pellets and mags in my margin and mixed pellet and corn at 10 meters. Started off with the feeder for the first hour but, apart from the odd very small roach and perch, nothing so on to my 10meter line. Tried that for a while but nothing again so tried my margin - had some small roach and a couple half pound chub. Then, out the blue, had my first carp on red maggot. I stayed on this line for another hour or so and got another carp then nothing so back to the feeder and had two more carp then nothing so, with the margin rested, spent the last hour down there and had 3 more carp to weigh in 32lbs 9oz.
1st Peter Green with 71lbs 3oz, 2nd Jeff Pearson with 47lbs 3oz, 3rd Rob Calderón with 43lbs 2oz and 4th Gary Pickard with 39lbs 13oz. Pic is of my peg number 26. A big thanks goes to Gary Pickard for helping me at the draw and weighing the high bank in.
