Janson Fishery – 19th February 2017

Doughnut Pool  (Winter League – Match 8)

1=  Mike Atherton   29lb  6oz
1=  Mark Baker        29lb  6oz
3.   Dave Burton       28lb  1oz

Possibly for only the second time in RoTAS history, there was a tie for first place in this latest Winter League match.  Nine people took part and Mark drew favoured peg 7, (much to the disgust of his angling peers).  However, it was soon apparent that the fish were not holed up there like they had been over the cold winter months.  So, after foul hooking a couple, Mark decided to focus on fishing the deck and feeding little.  This resulted in a steady net of fish, all hooked in the mouth.

Meanwhile, Mike Atherton was on peg 13 and fished dead-depth down the track to catch a couple of decent carp, up to 9lb in weight.

Dave Burton had a frustrating day on peg 6.  He drew on some fish, but countless foul hooking of the fish soon moved the shoal of fish on . . .    into Mark’s swim next door!
