Match 4 – Larford 9/05/2021

Specimen Pool

13 fished

Overcast, with a brisk south westerly wind. Pool carrying a lot of extra water.

Martin! Martin! Which peg are you on?

Once again we struggled, the weights from Larford were disappointing everyone struggled for bites. There was a lot of extra depth from the weeks rain and it appeared that the fish had gone into hibernation.

Some good stamp Bream were caught, along with the small stockie carp that made up the majority of the weigh ins. Only Martin managed to land a ‘specimen’ carp which is also the biggest fish landed so far this season, weighing in at 15-4. That fish boosted his weight, and he went on to win the match with a total weight of 38-0. In second place was Terry with 24-8. Dan made up the frame from end peg 15 with 20-0. As you can see from the weights, fishing isn’t right yet, the weather needs to improve for the fish to really get on the feed and give us at least half a chance to catch’em.

Terry has closed the gap between him and Guy, who still retains his lead at the top of the leader board after four matches.

We weighed in 171lbs or 77.5kg.
