Decoy Lakes (Oak Pool) – 9th June 2019

  1. Nic Wort                   99lb 10oz
  2. Bernard Robinson   72lb 12oz
  3. Martyn Staley           56lb  9oz

This was the first time RoTAS has fished Decoy Lakes for at least 10 years.  Upon arrival the owner advised that we would struggle as the fish had just finished spawning . . .  not the kind of news the 17 anglers fishing the match wanted to hear!

Nic Wort took top spot on the day, narrowly missing out on breaking the ton barrier from peg 26.  He caught a few carp on all methods, including pole fished shallow, margins and on the feeder.

Bernard drew peg 11 and had a brilliant start to the match, catching big carp on top kit plus one on the deck.  He was also fishing the Knock Out against Mark Baker and, with 19lb to spare, proceeded to knock Mark out of the cup.

Martyn took third place from peg 3, catching carp on the feeder.  He had his grandson join him for the day and young Keanan put in a great performance, catching 23lb 5oz in his first ever match – not bad for 12 year old!

RoTAS will be returning to Decoy Lakes in August.
