Robinswood Lake 2 -18th July

All eyes were on the draw this week after the Golden Peg was drawn on Peg 15. Peg 15 is an absolute flyer and frames most weeks and whoever was going to draw it had a really good chance of winning and collecting the bonus money. So when Ian Bradley drew it he couldn’t contain his excitement and was at his peg and set up in record time. The rest of us thought the worst and knew we had it all to do to beat Ian!

The match got underway and Craig Radford on Peg 8 had a Carp first put in but that was pretty much it as the first 2 hours were incredibly slow. The 3rd hour saw people starting to catch – Carl Wilson on Peg 3 and Tyla Reynolds on Peg 5 were matching each other fish for fish. Craig Radford was starting to catch down his margin and looked to be putting a big weight together. Ian Shaw on Peg 24 was also starting to catch down his margin but was having problems with lost fish.

Going into the final hour Club Favorite Craig Logan was catching well on his short line but all eyes were on Craig Radford who was really bagging.

As for Ian Bradley, the curse of the golden peg struck again as he didn’t have a fish for the first two hours and had very little for the next three. He not only lost to the next peg but also lost two side bets with Craig Radford and Ian Shaw, who both couldn’t wait to get stuck into him.

1st  Craig Radford – 133lb 13oz

2nd  Craig Logan – 55lb 11oz

3rd  Tyla Reynolds – 39lb 3oz

Section 1  Ian Bradley – 33lb 15oz

Section 2  Carl Wilson – 35lb 10oz

Robinswood – Lake 2 20-06-21

Club favourite Craig Logan was hoping to make it a hat-trick of wins this week, but as soon as he was given Peg one at the draw he knew he had little chance in competing with the better pegs on the lake. Even drawing the Golden Peg couldn’t improve his mood…

It was apparent from the off that the bottom end of the pond was fishing better with most competitors catching from the start with Dieter Woodings on Peg 15 and Mick Burke on Peg 24 getting off to a great start.

As the match progressed Jim Marcer on Peg 8 was starting to catch really well from his margin and looked to be the one to beat. Ian Bradley on Peg 5 was struggling to catch in open water so was having to fish into a snaggy area to get a bite but was catching.

Going into the last hour Jim was still catching well but Ian Shaw on Peg 10 was really making a move. Ian switched to fishing paste down his margin and it paid off catching several big Carp.

1st  Jim Marcer – 82lb 9oz

2nd  Ian Shaw – 57lb 1oz

3rd  Ian Bradley – 43lb 1oz

4th  Mick Burke – 36lb 4oz

 

 

 


Brailsford Horseshoe 13-06-2021

The match this week was on the popular Horseshoe Pond at Brailsford.  Pegs 21 and 26 fished the best the last time we were at the venue and when Ian Bradley and Ian Shaw drew these numbers they couldn’t get to the pegs quick enough!

Craig Radford drew the Golden Peg this week and he could not have got off to a better start, catching a Carp on his very first put in quickly followed by a second fishing shallow.  However, it was a lot slower for the rest on the competitors.  Ade Knighton blanked on the previous match and was determined to make amends this week, but he unfortunately lost a number of fish and failed to weigh in for the second week running. Club Favorite Craig Logan was on Peg 3 and was catching steady fishing shallow, but the pond was still fishing hard with loads of fish being lost.

Coming into the last 2hrs saw more people starting to catch. Carl Wilson on Peg 9 was now catching by fishing shallow and a switch to his margin in the last hour saw him put some better stamp Carp in the net.  Ian Shaw on Peg 26 was catching down his margin and Jim Marcer was  also starting to catch well. As time was called Craig Radford looked to have done enough to win the match and the Bonus Golden Peg but as always it would come down to the scales to decide.  When the scales arrived at his peg Craig Logan was winning with 66lb – unluckily for Radford his fish only went 52lb.

1st  Craig Logan – 66lb 5oz

2nd  Radford – 52lb 6oz

3rd  Jim Marcer – 45lb 3oz

Section 1  Carl Wilson – 42lb 9oz

Section 2  Ian Shaw – 36lb 5oz
