WARRINGTON ANGLERS' ASSOCIATION: Cold weather leads to smaller catches from Mersey
THE River Mersey looked perfect for our regular Sunday match.
However appearances are often deceptive – judging by the poor results.
Roy Everson, fishing a ground-bait feeder on peg 51, needed only 1lb 14ozs 10drs of small roach and perch to notch a win.
Eddie Frangleton moved up from third place the previous week to take the runner-up spot with a similar catch for 1-12-4.
It was more than evident the colder weather and blustery winds had put the fish off the feed. There have been decent pike catches, with one well-known angler taking three in a single session with the best weighing in at just over 18lbs.
These fish are all in prime condition as they feed ready for spawning.
Photographs are circulating of a 30lb carp caught from the Bridgewater Canal in the Warrington area.
It was apparently a real old warrior, and would be a fair age as they do not seem to grow too fast in this fishery due to the fact they mainly feed on naturals rather than having the luxury of a regular high-protein boilie or pellet angler-introduced diet.
