Kennet and Avon Canal - Spring League round 2

  • D11 Roadside
  • 7oz (9 fish)
  • 5 points out of 15, 10th, not good



The Kennet and Avon canal at Marlborough always seems to be a bit of a funny venue this time of year, as the roach don’t tend to feed and therefore your target quarry is BIG perch and skimmers (around 4oz-6oz and the odd bigger one). 

I drew “Road Side” which was very good in areas two weeks ago, and I hoped that it would fish again?  I drew D11 which was the right end of the section, shame I wasn’t a bit further up as there was more fish caught there two weeks ago, but can’t have it all?  Normally these perch either feed early or late, but with several going through early, I was concerned this would be a difficult day, no fish topping, with bright sun, clear water and no feature for me for the fish to hide under............... this was going to be tough.

Sure enough the fishing match was very tough, and I had one bite over the chop worm line, which was a 4lb pike (they don’t count).   Rotated lines, but caught nothing, with no bites I had nothing to work off.  Unfortunately I didn’t catch a perch and therefore weighed a disappointing 7oz.  Basically if you didn’t catch a perch, you were in trouble as no small fish were there to be caught.......  3 canal matches and no perch!  Also our team struggled too!!  All in all, a bad day.
