Danny O'Brien.

Winning his first match of the season was Danny O’Brien, who stormed to victory from peg one.

He put 44lb 13oz of mainly small carp and the odd barbel to the scales.

He caught his fish next to the reeds on the feeder with cheese as hookbait.

In second place from peg seven was Steve Smith with 35lb 9oz, followed by Mick Sidney from peg nine with 31lb.


There was a good turnout of Hotpoint AC anglers for the Baz Buckingham Memorial Shield match on Lou’s Pool at Decoy Lakes on Sunday.

It’s a sweetcorn only match, by far my least favourite bait, but I stuck at it and came out on top with 106lb 14oz.

Drawn on peg one I caught well at the start, fishing up in the water on a slow sinking feeder.

Then I had to switch to the margins and a good late run saw me beat off the chasing pack . . . but only just.

Runner-up with 96lb 5oz was Tyrone Horn. He caught well all day on a short pole line from peg seven.

Then came Colin Buckingham in third place on 92lb 4oz.
