1st- Steve Foster- 21lb- consisting of 5 Bream and a Skimmer
2nd- Reed Bradshaw- 14lb- consisting of 3 Bream
The match fished a lot better than last time even with the conditions being much the same, over the 11 anglers the lowest weight recorded was 5lb. Mark Halksworth secured the match win thanks to a 3lb ide that was landed on the whistle to weigh 27lb of pole caught silvers narrowly beating Graham Walton's weight of 25lb 11oz. Graham caught on the method feeder and had 14lb of bream and a surprise 11lb 11oz carp to secure second. Third place was a dead heat between Pete Bradshaw and Terry Moroz both tipping 14lb onto the scales. Terry's weight consisted of waggler & pole caught roach where Pete landed 10 skimmers on his groundbait & caster pole line.
Match report by Reed Bradshaw
Keep your eyes out for more matches coming up!
It was a tough match for most with the conditions not being particularly favourable for a big weigh of skimmers. One angler who sussed it was Craig Halksworth who had a mixed bag of skimmers, ide and quality roach for 26lb dead from peg 6. Craig caught on the 11m pole line shallow feeding chop worm and caster through a catapult.
Taking second place was Reed Bradshaw who caught two carp on worm & corn for 18lb and 6 skimmers for 7lb 8oz for a total weight of 25lb 8oz from peg 1. Reed caught the carp by fishing tight to the island and the skimmers over GB and caster in open water at 13m
Rounding off the results was Richard Wood with 14lb 4oz of skimmers, ide and a 3lb barbell. Richard caught shallow by feeding chop worm and caster through a toss pot at 14.5m.
Massive thanks to Reed for the match report!
