EVENT: DYNAMITE BAITS MAKINS Wednesday ‘KOBRA’ Affordable
VENUE: Lake 2, DYNAMITE BAITS MAKINS
DATE: 22 April 2009
1st Baz SMITHSON Gedling Tackle 151 lb 12 oz
2nd John ADAMSON Kobra Feeders 141 lb 4 oz
3rd Rob MIDDLETON Shakespeare 112 lb 12 oz
4th John VARLEY Higham Lane Fishery 111 lb 4 oz

In hot sunny weather carp were swimming near the surface all over Lake 2 at Dynamite Baits Makins Fishery during the Wednesday Kobra Affordable Open. However, they were easily frightened and few anglers caught ‘up in the water’.
The main exception was Gedling Tackle’s Baz SMITHSON. Drawn on A20, Baz fed 6ml pellets at 14m and caught roach, bream, crucian carp, tench and some good carp using a banded pellet presented between 1 and 4 feet below the surface. Baz’s 151 lb 12 oz was his best match weight and gave him a clear win.
Photograph attached shows Baz with part of his catch.
Runner up John Adamson (Kobra Feeders) fished method feeder baited with corn, pellet and meat on peg B17 for 26 carp, 4 bream and a tench totalling 141 lb 4 oz.
Third placed Rob Middleton (Shakespeare), on B11, also recorded a personal best weight with his 112 lb 12 oz of carp taken on pellet waggler, just edging out John Varley (Higham Lane Fishery) on peg A4, with 111 lb 4 oz on cage feeder and bread flake, while Mick Timson’s (J&K Tackle) 99 lb 8 oz was only enough for fifth place.
