THIS week it was David Tomkinson’s turn to fill his boots on Grey Mist.

Fishing the pellet feeder using his homemade 8mm boilies and mixed pellets he could hardly keep a rod in the water as 17 tench graced his landing net, with four weighing 8lbs+.

He also reports losing five more, along with three carp. Well done that man.

Ste Worrall also chose the Mist in search of carp.

He ‘spodded’ three different crushed, chopped and whole boilies to a clear patch next to some lily pads and fished Barrel Wafters on a noodle rig.

His rig must have been on the right spot as he finished his session with three mirror carp of 19lbs 14ozs, 21lbs 7ozs and 24lbs 10ozs.

Stephen Magee took time out to have a go at some lure fishing on the Bridgewater Canal.

He reports catching a few perch but his session was rewarded with a small jack pike of approximately 5lbs.

Stephen Spann had a couple of hours to kill and his lake of choice was Phoenix Park.

He finished his short session with three chunky roach to 7ozs and a perch weighing approximately 10ozs, all caught on maggots.

This week’s disabled and over 60s match held at Pickering’s Bridge saw Ron Durr draw the noted bream peg near the willows (but you still have to catch them). He didn’t disappoint when he emptied a 5lb bream, roach and perch on to the scales to take top spot comfortably.

The rest of the anglers found it a struggle with only another four breaking the 1lb mark, one of these being match organiser Jimmy Byrne who was second with 20 roach and four perch from Edwards Yard.

Most competitors scratched around for bites using bread and pinkies as the roach were reluctant to feed.
