Sunday 24th January Fishing Open

The latest results

“It was a great change from last week weather-wise and it was pleasant, mild and overcast at the lakes,” says Fishery Manager Terry.

“We all enjoyed the match and I’d like to say thanks to everyone who joined us.”

Nick Saunders (below) from Peg 29, was in first place, fishing the long pole with sweetcorn in deep water. He had a good weight of 71 lbs — congratulations Nick.

With 57.10 lbs, second place went to Chris Davis from Peg 26 who fished the lake at the bottom of the ledge, on the far side.

Third place went to Mark Summerhayes (below) with 50.4 lbs.

“Mark found that fishing the far side, by the island, he was fowl hooking the fish at first but once he dropped back a bit he started catching,” commented Terry.

Well, at least you know the perfect spot for next time Mark…

Shawn Townsend (below) came in fourth and also won the heaviest ‘silvers weight’ with a total of 45.2 lbs.

From Peg 10, Rodney Buss (below) of Kingswood Disabled came in fifth place with 42.14 lbs.

And in sixth place was John Osbourne (below), from Peg 11, with 42.4 lbs.

We hope to see you all at the lakes again soon.
