Round three saw Dave Cotterill on peg 5 (again) and he won (again – as in round one)! After feeding the pole line he starting the match with bomb and corn only to see indications on rod tip. A change to the banjo feeder resulted in three stockies, but bites were very slow. A look on the pole at 13m with soft pellet produced a good run of stockie carp. After a while the bites tailed off, but he could see there were fish moving around further out. The bomb and feeder didn’t do any good, so it was back to the pole at 13m for odd stockie and skimmers. Having tried hard 6mm pellet at 14.5m at various times without result it was only in the last hour and half he started to get indications and bites from the bigger resident carp that produced a good run of fish until the last 20 minutes when sport slowed down again. At the scales Dave’s 64-12-0 was enough to push him in front of the 60lb weight from Paul Marriott pegged opposite.
Paul Marriott on peg 25 also benefited from the stockies by catching them fast on the “two plus two” pole line. The fish were rising in the water for his loose fed meat and hook baits. This line slowed down and got rested while he tried his margin swim at the adjacent empty peg. When this didn’t produce Paul swapped between the long pole on worm and the short meat line for odd fish and his 60-6-0 weight of carp easily secured second place.
Third place came from peg 21 where Keith White had a pretty slow start. After persevering with a soft pellet just up the shelf of the sunken island Keith had a really good run of fish. When that came to an end he followed them to the top of the island at 14m on hard 6mm pellet. At the weigh in Keith had amassed a 49-5-0 net of carp and skimmers for third.
Paul Richardson took fourth place with 43-8-0 from peg 18 on a hybrid feeder and dead red maggots, peg 9 took fifth place with 33-4-0 for Steve Hoult on pole and pellet and sixth place went to Les Overmass with 32-8-0 from peg 10.
The final round is at Donno Lake next week.
