Morning to all, the Weds club fished Malcolm Barker Club Lake this week. It was going to be a hard day - this lake is not known for high weights. I hand picked, along with Terry Moranda, all the best pegs that were not overgrown with weed. I drew peg 20 not one of my favourites but it is what it is. I made up two pole lines and a feeder for distance fishing. I started off cupping in a small amount of groundbait and a bit of sweetcorn along with hemp and red maggots at 10 meters, the other line was by a very small group of lily pads this was a maggot line only for perch and anything that took a bait. As I suspected it was very hard going only managing the odd roach and rudd but I was catching. I ended my day with 2lb 12oz joint 6th and thanks for coming.
1st Tony Cruci with 8lbs 4oz, 2nd Steve Foster with 6lbs 10oz, 3rd Gary Pickard with 4lbs 3oz and 4th Jeff Pearson with 3lbs 14oz. Well done to all on a very hard day, the pic is the Malcolm Barker Lake (and a bit of Bill).
