    2017 SEASON
    DATE: 30 APRIL 2017
    1st Neil STEVENSON 59-12
    2nd Janet SKINNER 48-00
    3rd Steve TALBOT 41-00
    4th Dave LEWIS 38-05
    5th Les SMEDLEY 36-02
    6th Alan WELCH 33-10

    The Spring BAG-UP 2017 league returned to the Donno Lake for the final and round 6 of the league, which saw two teams out in front as possible winners and the top individual only needing to catch a fish for 1 point to secure his individual win.

    A decent previous week of frost free nights and milder day time temperatures generally makes for a good match, and match day continued to be warm and sunny for the most part with a moderate mild wind, and the fish did feed with more consistent weights recorded from round the lake.

    Neil Stevenson nailed this final round with an excellent 59-12-0 of carp from peg 4. The pellet and bomb, one of Neil’s favourite tactics accounted for a proportion of his catch and the rest were caught on the pellet waggler as the fish had moved up in the water to intercept the catapult fed loose pellets

    Making use of a good draw on peg 28, Janet Skinner secured second place with 48-0-0. All of Janet’s fish, which included carp up to 7-8lbs were caught in the left-hand margin, using maggot as hook bait. Janet landed 11 carp, but lost 8 in the reeds resulting in a frustrating time trying to retrieve her snagged up rigs.

    Steve Talbot took third place from peg 9 with 41-0-0 of carp. Loose feeding meat and using meat on the hook on the pole at 8.5 metres was the method.

    Dave Lewis took fourth place with 38-5-0 from peg 5 using pole with caster and pellet hook-baits. On adjacent peg 6 Les Smedley took fifth place with 36-2-0. Sixth place went to Alan Welch with 33-10-0 form peg 3.

    Rob Pembridge led the individual points from the start of the league. Running in to the final round Rob was 5 points clear of the next contenders. This meant that in the final Round 6 all Rob needed to do was to catch a fish for 1 point, just to ensure nobody can catch up with him. Rob did have an unfavourable draw on peg 22, but did catch more than one fish. The unfortunate thing was that he finished last in his section, but fortunately scored that vital one point to secure the Individual win.
