After the previous hectic week we then had our first visit of the year from ‘The Dartford Boys’ who this time were joined by John and Pip Chambers (Dartford)
Also returning with the lads were our lake record holder Ste Alford (Teeside) and his mate Dean Crust (Teeside)
Starting where he left off last year Ste Alford had a 54.06 common on Saturday afternoon, and just carried on catching throughout the week ending up with 10 fish in total including, 1 x 50, 2 x 40’s, 4 x 30’s and 3 x 20’s.
Deano also had a great week with 12 fish with the highlight being a brace of forties on Tuesday afternoon, his biggest fish of the week was a 47.08 mirror and his haul included 3 x 40’s, 5 x 30’s, and 4 x 20’s.
Phil Gilham (Kent) also had a great week when he caught his previous PB mirror at a new PB weight of 59.13lbs! His 8 fish haul included 1 x 50, 3 x 40’s and 4 x 30’s.
Martin Hewett also had a new PB when he caught a stunning 59.08 common, his 9 fish total included 2 x 50’s, 1 x 40, 1 x3 0 and 5 x 20’s.
Graham Tree struggled early in the week but came back with a vengeance in the second half of the week catching 3 x 50’s in the last 24 hours! He ended up with 7 fish for the week including 3 x 50’s, 1 x 40,1 x 30 and 2 x 20’s. It was nice to finally see Graham with a smile on his face, after he had seen the other lads catching on his special “wafters” at the beginning of the week when he was struggling for a bite.
Swell (Dartford) had 6 fish, including 1 x 40,3 x 30’s and 2 x 20’s and Mel Meredith also did well for the amount of time his rods were actually in the water, managing 7 fish, 1 x 40, 2 x 30’s and 4 x 20’s – you must have one of the best catch ratios to time lines are actually in the water Mel!
John Chambers had only 4 fish, 1 x 30 and 3 x 20’s, and John’s brother Pip sadly didn’t catch this time but still enjoyed himself.
A great weeks fishing Boys with a new record for 50’s in a week at 8, and also 2 new PB’s – something I didn’t expect at the beginning of the week looking at the PBs you have had.
