I fished the main lake on Phase 1 at Makins Saturday and Sunday, absolutely brilliant!!

We were balling 4 bags of groundbait in at 5m stuffed with a full pint of Joker (20's worth!!!!) and you just dropped in over the top of it with whatever bait you liked on a 2g rig with the olivette right down, big hook, strong line and bites were insatnt. It was a roach a drop all day. Proper bagging! The place is absolutely stuffed with silver fish.

Was just me and a few team mates on Saturday and a match on Sunday. The lowest weight was 3kg of roach and Alan Scotthorne won it with 7.5kg. Everybody had 200+ fish.

One of the best fishing experiences I have had, especially for the time of year.

I was horrified to learn that after the Sensas Final this weekend, they are taking out all the silver fish and keeping the lake as a carp pond for all the boilie brigade!!!!

I can't understand how such an excellent venue where you can get bites every drop in all day long will just be used for blokes that go down with 2 rods, alarms etc and sit there reading their papers and twiddling their thumbs waiting for 2 or 3 fish to hook themselves.

What is the world coming to???!!!!!

I weighed 3.850kg, probably the average. The lake is a big rectangle and the best/deepest pegs were on the long straight on the opposite bank to the car park. I was on one of the sides.

I beat the guy to my right and the guy to my left beat me by 50g. To be fair, I could have done at least another kg but it was a practise match for next weeks final so I was trying different things, caster down the edge, fishing up in the air etc. The guys that framed just put blinkers on, got their heads down and just fished one line out all day which is what everyone will be doing at the weekend.

It didn't help going out Saturday night in Nuneaton and not getting back to the hotel while after 3am very drunk!!!

You should see the list of stars that are gonna be fishing there this weekend, Jean Desque French international, he's got a team in. Alan Scotthorne, Bob Nudd, Mark Downes, Steve Gardner, Will Raison, ladies international squad (who we beat in the qualifiers[:D]) etc etc.

I can't believe we held our own and didn't get completely battered on Sunday!

Will be a great event this weekend, just hope I don't draw in between two stars or my head will be wrecked before I start!

Cheers guys,

Dave, those pics certainly would frighten the opposition!!! I'd end up with 3 spare pegs either side of me [:D]

Who's organising the cheer leaders for the weekend?
