Alvechurch Fisheries Winter League - Round 6

Round 6 Alvechurch Winter League
Peg 18 Canal
Soild..... errrrrr nope.
3rd in section of 10
29 fished the match. 

I had 2 early Carp and 1 late one.  Unreal.  Couldn't catch Carp, pegs 18nand 16 have been solid for weeks, Steve Bellion had 158lb 2 weeks ago on peg 18 Canal!!

I had 34lb 4oz of mainly barbel and Ide on maggots, I even caught several Barbel on hard pellets!!   Nice day really, peg was worth 50lb of them of these fish.  However, you normally get a late run of carp???? Not today

Russell on peg 16 had 35lb and Phil Evans destroyed the lake on peg 3 with 90lb ish.

Ivy House Lakes - 5th Round Winter League

Ivy House Lakes winter league.
Round 5
Peg 26
DNW

I fancied it.  Wind off my back, great skimmer area and a chance of carp.

Fished for carp, caught a skimmer, went on the pole thinking it's going to be solid.... eeeeeer no 1 roach and 2 skimmers.   Just shows what I know about fishing!!

Derek Newson catching on feeder to Island and had two carp about 45 minutes in.  I had no choice but to fish for carp for the rest of the match but I gave up 3pm and done the walk of shame.

Lost £10 in side bets..... the banter on Facebook is going to be brutal on Derek Newson private page!!! 😂😂

Manor Farm Leisure - Silvers Only

Manor Farm Leisure
Silvers ONLY.
Round 3
Peg 42 Boundary Pool

Had a nightmare with the wind..... lost cap, pole section in lake, lost fish, fish getting blown out of the landing net when netting (too small), F1 trouble, had to feed maggots with a catapult at 5 metres, struggled to hold 5 metres at times and fishing 4 x 18 float in 3.5 foot of water.  Looked hideous!!  Still managed 21lb 2oz for third overall.  All on maggots over groundbait. Nothing fancy.

Peg 8 Boundary Steve Paige 23lb 12oz (all roach)
Peg 6 Boundary Neil Chapman 21lb 8oz (2 perch and loads of roach)

Good picture by Owen.

Alvechurch Fisheries. Winter League. Round 5

Alvechurch Winter League.  Round 5.

I draw sock on, Peg 3 Arrow, as the fish seem to be shoaled up more in the early pegs.  So last peg in the bag as a good one (note to self, maybe I shouldn't draw??!!).

Started on pellets at 14.5 metres and caught a small carp (10oz) and a skimmer.  But either side were catching Ide, skimmers and odd BIG roach.  So decided to feed maggots and caught Ide quite well.  However felt I wasn't doing enough so "pinged" pellets to far back and fished 17.5 metres and didn't look back.  Had a brilliant day catching "stocky" carp.  Weighed 68lb to win the section/lake.

Had a great laugh with Steve.

Manor Farm Leisure- Round 2 of Silvers League

Silvers Only League

Round 2

Peg 5 Ash.... unbelievably I drew Ash again and even more unbelievably it was solid with F1's.  Must of had 20 F1's and a small carp, lost as many.  Unreal, I put back way over 50lb of fish.  Spent most of my day playing fish that didn't count!!  My peg was worth 130lb of fish today.

Weighed 2lb and really did come last!!  My league is over, got 26 points after two rounds!!!  Got three rounds left and would like to be in Boundary in the high or low numbers to have a days fishing.

Ivy House Lakes - Round 4 of the Winter League

Well, from Hero to ZERO!!



Derek Newson gave me a lesson today.  Lost £2.

Drew peg 33 on Moorhen and got battered!! Ken and Mike gave me a WHOPPING either side.  All weights below.

I caught 70 ish roach, 4 small skimmers, 1 F1, 1 tiny carp and one carp about 2lb.  Unfortunately no munters. 🐳 I weighed 10lb 8oz to only beat 3 in section ("last").  I'm NOT moaning, but me, Mike and Ken both had one carp each.... Ken's was 11lb, Mike's between 5lb to 7lb and mine waa 2lb.  If I'd been a bit lucky with size of carp, then it would if been a different story with points.  But gosh I am really due a flyer in this league!!!

Bung Hole Billy Peg... weighed 120lb to win the match.  Caught on pellet feeder to the island,  nothing fancy.  Fished 0.20 to a 14 Guru QM1.  Not sure what Mark's feeds his carp, but they fight really hard.  So not point messing around on light lines.
