Match 3 – Elmbridge 25/04/2021

Peacock Pool

11 fished

Cold start, developing into a cloudy day with a high temperature of 13C and a low of 10C with an Easterly breeze of 13mph.

Winning peg 6!

Once again, the weights from Elmbridge were disappointing everyone struggled as the carp that cruised around in pairs just didn’t want to feed.

So it was over to the venue expert Terry to lead the way from peg 6 but only putting 46lb in his net, no where near the 100lb that we know the pool is capable of. Dave kept his run of form going from peg 1 challenging the lead right from the all-in with 36lb, that’s two successive second places for him. Simon Harris completed the frame from peg 2 with 23lb. Guy still retains his lead at the top of the leader board after three matches.

We weighed in 173lbs or 78.5kg.

How disappointing! Either we’ve forgotten how to catch fish or the fish haven’t switched onto feeding since spawning. There were plenty of carp showing, even leaping out of the water giving away their whereabouts but could we get them to feed. Probably only Terry knows the way to get them to feed here although what he weighed in this match was only a third of the weight he put on the scales last time we fished here.

Fingers crossed for bumper bags of fish at the annual outing

Well done to Terry who joined the Ton up club with his victory at Elmbridge, it also takes him up to second on the leader board, although Dan Podmore is still leading by a single point.  Martin said he lost too many fish on peg 21 otherwise he could have framed better.   Read more of this post
