As predicted in my previous entry, the madness continued on this highly stocked match lake.
This one was a straight 5 hours match with a strict 100lb per keepnet limit, if you go over 100lb = disqualified.
30 entries for this one.
I drew peg 30 which was only 18" deep and fed 2 big pots of pellets and corn at 5m in front of me and the same to my right.
I could hear carp being landed by others while I was still potting in!
I started on the 5m line and started getting some small carp quite regularly, all the time feeding a few grains of corn on this line and also a few at 2m.
I could see carp tails at 2m after a few minutes so I continued at 5m until the end of the first hour and then switched to the 2m line.
The carp were of a better average size at 2m so I continued here for the rest of the match. At the half way point I had put 40 carp in my two keepnets so I fed a good handful of bait and went to find someone who could lend me another net or two.
I ended up with 60 carp for 214lb 7oz, another new PB match weight for me and it turned out to be good for 2nd.
Josh, who is a regular at Alders, won from favoured (FLIER!) peg 3 with a whopping 422lb.
