Paul Hyde, Browning-Wickford, peg 8, 150-0-0

 

After a week away with the kids Paul just rocks up and smashes the match with 150lb of pellet fish down the track and inner margins another solid performance from the Browning man a mixture of carp and silver fish again, the pellet just catches everything in the peg, but his performance wasn’t good enough to stop the rain for the weigh in and he duly got a massive soaking, lol

The wettest days fishing we have ever known, it was one of those matches you had to keep plumbing up because the lake just kept getting deeper….

Slippery does it again, the format is the same its just the peg that changes and don’t get me started about the draw, another great draw for Mark and another great result as he once again gives em what they want, 4 big cups full of micro pellets to start and a single grain of corn to the hook and then its just a simple case of a kinder cup of micros every put in, simple and very effective some would say deadly, tow put back carp and 108lb of silver fish, awesome performance once again you slippery git…

Peg 11 is the most unfenced peg on the venue at the moment but today it was rocking…

Paul Dunn, Lake John Fishery, peg 11, 96-8-0

As the summer season draws to a close the lake had some extensive foliage trimming and peg repairs ready for the colder weather when it finally arrives, this could have been one of the reasons un-fancied peg 11 turned in a good performance, pellet master Dunn drip fed the peg on two lines to max out with a near ton performance of mainly carp.

Its not the anglers its the peg, and peg 33 once again does the biz, its got to be the best peg in England surely…. don’t get me wrong “Slip” knows his way round a few fish but the peg is legend….

Mark Parris, Lake John-Hollow Angling, peg 33, 97-8-0

Well its that peg again but this week it has fished completely out of sorts and even though its the same winning peg as last week it has fished so hard and bites were very fragmented so Parris had to put his thinking cap on and work out how best to get this peg to produce, margins were a no no so the 6m line in the deeper water, still the same volumes of feed and still corn to the hook but the bream were off the feed so “slip” went carp fishing, 5 put back carp for 10lb each a late run of skimmers was just enough on what was to be a packed 29 peg’er…

A last minute booking for Roy Stanley pays off….


Roy Stanley 15.8.2015
Roy Stanley, Lake John Fishery, peg 12, 121-12-0

Roy was the only man to achieve the magical ton today and with the water levels a bit lower than we would like Roy found the fish were happiest feeding on the far bank margin, bulking the peg out with micro pellets and corn to the hook, but the bait had to be as tight to the bank as possible, predominately carp for Roy with the odd stray skimmer.

Makins has been waiting a long time for this peg but he GOT the result he was after….

Roy Makins, GOT Baits, peg 33, 148-4-0

I say this is the best peg in England because of its marginal features and everyone that has a bad day on this peg is probably there fault, and this is a standing Lake John joke, but it is a good peg and Roy certainly proved it today, Roy started the match with a meat approach which was a steady run of fish until the afternoon and then it was a quick switch to the corn and he never looked back, only one carp and a huge back of silver fish, top days dangling for the GOT Baits man

Browning boy Hydie scratches a few fish dow the track on another tuff fishing day at Lake John…

Paul Hyde, Browning-Wickford, peg 9, 64-0-0

 

Another difficult day at the lake as the 100lb weights of recent weeks have gone for the moment at least, it was a usual approach for Mr Hyde as he concentrated down the track kinder potting micro pellets with a 4mm pellet to the hook, the best tip for this place at the moment is to fish for everything in the peg and be glad of every bite, steady feeding is the key right now skimmers are making up 60% of the total catch weights

Mark Parris, Lake John-Hollow Angling, peg 30, 132-0-0

 

With only one put back carp of 10lb on the bonus board Mark soon worked out that fish were just a bit further out than usual still the same micro pellet and corn feed but it seems that since the blue moon on Friday the fish have just simply moved out of the margins, skimmers and bream for the slip man, slip dog, slippery git…

Pinch punch first day of the month, and once in every blue moon it fishes hard, but fair….

Paul Dunn, Lake John Fishery, peg 3, 69-0-0

 

Well we have had a hatch of flying ants which must cover at least 2 acres and there was a blue moon last night, so with a moody moon and enough natural food landing on the water to feed a thousand carp the fishing was due to take a downward turn, however Mr Dunn is back in charge and scrapes together a reasonable victory having to search the peg to its max to keep the fish coming, pellets all the way and a mixture of carp and bream.
