The Last Round ! BAG-UP 2013
The last round of the Spring BAG-UP 2013 league was concluded on Lake 4 at the popular Robinswood fishery. The weather started fine with some sunny periods, then started to cloud over with patchy rain showers throughout the day. Fortunately the air temperture was reasonably mild.
Number One place was taken by Paul Skinner fishing long pole on peg 9. Paul caught nearly all carp up to 3lbs on maggot with a winning weight of 18lbs 10ozs. This was a excellent weight on the day due to a change in recent weather conditions, with all angler’s finding encouraging fish to feed very difficult.
Finishing second with a close weight to the winner was regular angler Dave McPate with 17lbs 4ozs. Dave was drawn on corner peg 15 near the dam wall, and his successful method was to fish small feeder filled with micro pellets, and meat on the hook.
Paul Marriot came in third place with a 12lbs 10ozs of mostly carp from peg 1.This is a corner peg at the top end of the lake opposite the dam wall. Paul fished the long pole the majority of the time towards the margins to catch mainly small carp, with brief spells on the small feeder to take only 1 other small carp.
Janet Skinner our only regular lady angler continued good form, and won section 4, which fished hard, with a very respectable weight on the day of 7lbs 0ozs.
