It’s been a busy time over the past week on the Six Island Pool at Decoy.

On Friday the Over 55s took to the banks with Mick King taking the honours with 109lb 8oz of carp - all taken on a short pole line with soft pellet from peg two.

Next from peg four with 99lb 12oz was Dave Thornton, another angler fishing pole and pellet close in, followed by Bob McBeath on 99lb 12oz.


On a windy and very wet Sunday, JVAC members fished the Six Island Pool and it was Andy Kelk who topped the list.

He drew peg seven and caught 90lb 11oz on the pole with pellet.

Nick Carlton took the runner-up spot fishing red maggot for 83lb 6oz followed by Roy Wells with 73lb 4oz.


Webb’s AC were back at Float Fish Farm again at the weekend, with Richard Knight taking the top spot fishing a small maggot feeder for 30lb 1oz.

Runner-up was George Bates, who fished small soft pellet for 26lb, followed by Alan Forrest on 14lb 13oz.


The River Welland at Deeping Roadside looked in perfect condition when Deeping St James AC held the third round of their DILS competition.

But, as so often happens after, and indeed during heavy rain, the water temperature drops and the fish refuse to feed in any numbers.

That said, everybody caught fish but for most the better samples did not show.

There was a draw for the top spot with Pete Molesworth Senior on peg two and Paul Dotchin on peg eight both catching roach on bread punch to finish with 5lb 5oz.

Third place went to Steve Cox on the end peg 24 with 3lb 11oz.
