Spring Bag Up April 21st.Results
The latest Spring BAG-UP match was fished on the Donington Lake which is part of the Ryecroft fishery at Hemmington.
All anglers were greeted with a nice sunny spring morning, although the wind got stronger as the match progressed, this effected the pegs near the A50 bank. The pegs near the first car park where the wind was only light made these pegs quite comfortable to fish.
First man home in top place was Nigel Brailsford on peg 1 near the first car park with a winning weight of 35lbs 3ozs nearly all Carp. Nigel caught most of his fish on bomb and method feeder combinations.
Second place was taken by Dave Mayo drawn on peg 27 who weighed 34lbs 4ozs, only one fish short of a first place! Dave’s successful method was pellet waggler fished at a variety of depths.
The previous round match winner John King finished third with 27lbs 2ozs form peg 10 (round towards the far corner facing the A50). John fished is favourite bait at the moment, which is bread, but this time on a feeder and bomb.
Yours truly struggled on peg 8 coming a miserable last in the section. Janet Skinner fished really well next to me on peg 9 for 2 Carp, Skimmers and a few Roach for 15lbs 9ozs. Janet’s successful method was Pole and Maggot to win my section by default. Although Janet is a accomplished lady angler it was still a source of amusement that I been battered both sides especially by Janet. Chip shop peg springs to mind!
