It was a full house in the JVAC Sunday match fished on the Six Island Pool on the Decoy complex.

Usually it’s a signal for the fish to switch off with so many anglers around the lake.

Indeed several did struggle but thankfully the top end fished well with hot peg 12 producing the goods.

Roger Gowler drew it and made no mistake. He started on a small feeder, switched to a straight lead and finally long pole catching on each method with pellet, with his long pole line the most productive.

At the weigh-in Gowler put 75lb 5oz to the scales.

Roy Wells came in second from peg 10. He caught on the pole with pellet for 59lb.

In third place came Mike King on 56lb 6oz.


Recording his second match win of the winter series run by Cock Inn on the Four Island Pool at Decoy Chris Shortland caught 54lb 8oz to win.

Fishing from peg six on the feeder, he caught on red maggot and corn steadily all day.

Paul Smith took second place with 54lb followed by Steve Smith on a level 50lb.


In the Reel People Spring League match at Float Fish Farm Fishery, Dick Cocksedge took the honours with 47lb 12oz catching on red maggot on the feeder from peg three.

Runner up was Dennis Sambridge on 36lb 10oz followed by Brian Ogden with 15lb.


Making it two wins in a row at Float Fish Farm in the Webb’s AC match on the Horseshoe Pool was Peter Telszewski.

He put 13lb 12 oz to the scales - all caught on a small Method feeder with red maggot.

Runner-up was lan Forrest with 9 lb 14oz, with the rest of the field struggling for bites.
