The weights are picking up and of the 21 who fished, 11 had 20lb or more. There were a few fish caught up in the water and a few on paste but quite a lot of fish down the margins which is where the winner of today's match fished. He caught on a number of baits but fed just 3/4 of a pint of caster to keep fish to 6lb coming all day. The fish were spread all around the lake.

The water temperature overnight was 16.1C which is the about the highest it has been this year. This meant that the fish are beginning to feed in earnest.

The results for today were:-
1st Dave Taylor - Peg 69 - Wass's Tackle - 62lb 11oz
2nd Keith Goodram - Peg 56 - Suffolk County - 42lb 6oz
3rd Pat Denny - Peg 72 - Saxmundham Tackle - 35lb 6oz
4th Alex Reynolds - Peg 50 - Dynamite Baits - 32lb 4oz
5th John Dale - Peg 64 - Unattached - 28lb 14oz
6th Colin Provins - Peg 62 - Gipping Valley - 27lb 9oz

I managed 22lb 8oz for 8th overall but struggled through the first half of the match and could barely get a bite. I caught later on down the edge.

Next match is on Match Lake 1 next Saturday, 28th May and will be limited to 28 pegs so book early. The draw is now 9.45 am and we fish from 11 until 4 that seems to have produced a few more fish. Phone me on 07881 953310 if you want a ticket.
