That's just for chefster lol

I think Trevor is on the Oaks lake with me (fishing for the JJL team), not a problem, I took his scalp last year so two in a row and I'll leave him hairless :D

The overall results...

20200821_171831.jpg


Maggotdrowning came 10th overall.
Chris, Gary and Nick managed to stick to the team plan and get 6 points or less, unfortunately a couple of bad draws for myself and Kev cost us :(

Not to panic though, its the taking part that counts, all my tackle will be listed in the Classifieds shortly ?;)

Unlucky chaps. With Oaks being a bit of a specimen water, I would imagine it's quite a difficult lake to match fish. Completely different from Ash & Pines in the type of fish you're targetting?

A lot of it is in the draw, you can only catch whats in front of you . Hope you and the rest of the lads enjoyed your day . Have a pint ? and a bit of banter ? ?

My report would read something like...

Spent the first hour down the margins looking for Carp and found none.
Bunged a load of pellets in the margins and then went out into open water looking for them, and found none.

Followed the same line for 3 hours on the method whilst feeding the margins and managed 3 Skimmers plus bounced two smaller ones off, the problem with using heavier tackle. Dropped into the margins for a few casts to see if any movement, no indications at all.
Found no Carp.

Back onto my margin line for the last hour, gave it up after 30minutes and went back on my method feeder lines chasing a few more skimmers, none to be found.

It was a struggle to be honest, but hey ho, that's match fishing.

Weather wise it was blowing a gale most of the day.
Tommy Pickering had a small tree blown over into his corner peg.

Darren Cox had a mare of a day but managed 110lb, he lost 26 Carp in the process.
Adam Rooney was pegged next to Darren (peg 9) and won the lake with 210lb ish.

The two of them were amazing to watch, the speed and accuracy of their long casts to the back of the island was amazing.

Joe Roberts was on peg 3 next to me and put 51lb of small Perch on the scales. They must have been 12 to the pound if not more
