Only men dare attend this Wednesday open, and with pole breaking winds the unlucky 13 that braved the elements had themselves a field day and the golden peg tumbled as well, it has fished its bits off….
Darren Woodwood, Lake John Fishery, peg 26, 131-12-0, golden peg
The wind and rain blew all night and they forecast it would be the same today, for once the weather people were sock on, it was horrid, todays top jockey was an old junior school mate of mine and today makes this his first win ever at Lake John and to add to the glory it was a golden peg as well, nice things happen to nice people and Darren was made up, yes it was the same winning peg as last week but you have still got to catch em, all silver fish on a meat and corn combo at 6m directly in front of the peg, the weather was dreadful but the fishing was ding dong bring it on, with four weights topping the ton you can’t ask for more and its probably worth mentioning that the lowest weight today was 79lb, wow, however the winner did manage to get a little egg on his face as just after weighing in what was the be the winning weight Darren fell in head first, what a chump, I mean champ……..ha ha ha….. Darren well done today and thanks for making this victory something to write about, no-one laughed at you mate honest, we laughed with ya……well done today and enjoy all that extra lolly….
