Price is right on the Jay Lake at Rookery Waters
John Price was a comfortable winner of the Ramsey & District Angling Society match on the Jay Lake at Rookery Waters on Sunday.
He caught well all day from peg 22 on red maggot to weigh in 183lb 4oz.
Runner-up Keith Rayment was on peg 37 and caught some big fish from the margins on meat late on to see him finish with 111lb. Third was Gary Coupland with 80lb 10oz, followed by Simon Wagstaff on 72lb 8oz.
Deeping St James AC were back on the match lake at North View Lakes, Gedney Hill, for the third round of the South Holland Series Cup and also the Committee Cup.
The winner on peg three was the in-form Ray Torrington. With fish showing in the margin from the start he fished meat a metre from the bank to take carp to 10lb and weigh in 188lb 9oz.
Second was Kevin Crompton on peg five. He started on a long pole line before fishing the margins on meat to weigh in 117lb 4oz. Rob Upex came third from peg one with 87lb 2oz.
A change of venue saw Hotpoint AC fish their first ever match on the Wagtail Pool down at Float Fish Farm Fishery.
There was a strong wind blowing straight down the lake and most struggled in the first half of the match.
Thankfully though there were plenty of fish caught after lunch.
I managed to edge ahead of the field finishing top with 73lb 1oz. Most of my fish fell to a small feeder with just about every fish taken on banded hard pellet from peg eight.
Runner-up on peg 21 was Josh Knight, who caught on the tip close in for 67lb 3oz, followed by Pete Sanderson on peg 22 weighing in a level 64lb.
