Mallory Park Fisheries Weekley Match Results
Sunday 1st November
As we sat for breakfast in the Mallory Park cafe, it was evident that we were in for a bad day weather wise, a motorcyclist had already fallen off, and this was just one of the marshals driving down to the pits !, the racetrack looked more like a river.
As we arrived the Glebe the rain had got even heavier and the southerly wind was getting stronger.
As we waited for the usual late arrivals I had a few picture messages arrive on my phone. It was from the previous evenings Halloween party, some of our members had paid good money to fancy dress. Jarred was a skeleton, Master Bates went along as Dracula, our Netting and fish stock controller, Scott Brown, was in a pumpkin suit. Rob Bowser was quick to comment that the suit was not needed at all just some yellow paint, nasty.
We had forty anglers this week, but for some reason our faithful mastermind duo , Mr Ward and Mr Clayton, A.K.A. TEAM ABACUS, had once again had trouble counting upto forty, I had to do some juggling to get every one on a peg with at least one empty swim one side. There were still tears from the week before after some anglers had been surrounded by others each side. In defence I must add that all the anglers in this situation last week had won money !
On to the fishing. This week I had been drawn on one of my favourite winter pegs, number four on pool one. I like this peg as it seems to have a bit more room on the far bank to allow for casting error ! At the start it was difficult with driving rain and gusting southerly wind, but both myself and Dom Lanni, on peg five, were off to reasonable start both catching small buddy carp, I added three better fish before the wind swung round to become a really strong north westerly. I was now finding it impossible to get accurate with my feeder. Dom was giving me a real battering now and managing to cast his feeder amongst the small carp in a much tighter peg than mine.
I was forced onto a long margin line, where I had been feeding micro pellets and few castors. After a couple of small fish I was pleasantly suppressed to hook a good carp. In the net it was around 8 lbs. I followed this with two more around the same size. Things were looking better. A couple more carp in the last few hours and two bream around 2lb had given me a reasonable weight.
Dom had fished brilliantly to win the section with 68 lbs of small carp, I was lucky enough to get the second place with Brian Hill in third on peg 8.
We were lucky this week as Brian was the last peg in our section, around the bend the weight were much better with the big fish really having a go.
Rich Morgan had 105 lbs to win the second section on peg 16 and Rob Bowser also had over a hundred pounds on peg 27 to win the third section. there were much better back up weights in these section with no one frightened to weigh in.
Peg 5 - Dom Lanni - 68 lbs
Peg 4 - Kev Russell - 58 lbs
Peg 8 - Brian Hill - 43 lbs
Peg 16 - Rich Morgan - 105 lbs
Peg 12 - Gordon Priddey - 73 lbs
Peg 11 - Mark Davis - 70 lbs
Peg 27 - Rob Bowser - 101 lbs
Peg 21 - Gary Ellot - 77 lbs
Peg 29 - Carl Redman - 60 lbs
Pool 4 had been practised heavily during the week with good catches reported. Two hundred plus weights were caught, Bob Eaton taking the win with 136 lbs and Mick Burrows in second place with 103 lbs.
Peg 69 - Bob Eaton - 136 lbs
Peg 67 - Mick Burrows - 103 lbs
Peg 71 - Jim Chessman - 89 lbs
Pool 5 was once again dominated by the end pegs. Chris Allen taking 92 lbs on the wide end and Gary miller 67 lbs from the narrow end.
Peg 85 - Chris Allen - 92 lbs
Peg 76 - Gary Miller - 67 lbs
Peg 78 - Pete Exton - 65 lbs
Pool 6 however was not dominated by the usual peg. Andy MATCHCATCH Towers did manage third from the little girls peg though. Apparently this is the first time he has had a go on this end peg ! Really.
Steve Conway was back to his best, with an empty peg either side, weighing in 94 lbs to take the win. Gary Sadler had pushed him hard though from the other end of the lake. Taking a well earned 84 lbs to the scales.
Peg 88 - Steve Conway - 94 lbs
Peg 96 - Gary Sadler - 84 lbs
Peg 86 - Andy Towers - 67 lbs
A story has just landed in my in box regarding a competitor on pool seven. It appears that Marukyu the worlds largest Groundbait company has invested
Even after this ground bait disaster Mr. Ward managed a creditable second place on this pool just pipping John Palmer and ‘Robber’ Roy. Apparently RM did feel sorry for Daggasan and fished with the soup, giving the TEAM ABACUS angler the correctly mixed bait. Kerry Dyson topped the lake with just under seventy pounds of carp taken on hair-rigged bread
Peg 101 - Kerry Dyson - 69 lbs
Peg 105 - David Ward - 57 lbs
Peg 103 - John Palmer - 55 lbs
According to my records now there are two anglers that have drawn end pegs in the last two matches. They are -
Stu Odonnell and Rob Hollis, Jammy ? you decide.
