16th October 2018 Warrington Anglers Association Guardian Notes

16th October 2018 Warrington Anglers Association Guardian Notes

Tom Fahey and Stu Underwood managed to fit in a four-hour session at Statham Pool on Friday and hooked four carp but lost one. They included a small pristine mirror around 5lb, 10lb common, a 15lb common. And Stu had a nice bream of 5lbs on the feeder. Not bad sport taking in consideration the gale force but temperate conditions.

Jim Broadhurst reports a good few hours fishing a Phoenix Park Lake this week when despite struggling with weed he landed five tench with the best at just under 7lbs. He fished a small block-end feeder with micro-pellets and banded halibut on the hook and lost a carp at the net.  

Saturdays Mersey Match Series fished at Kingsway Allotments was won by Jimmy Byrne who included a 3lbs bonus bream in his catch of skimmers for a weight of 22-4-0. He fished groundbait feeder and maggot as did second placed Barry Chambers for 11-11-0.

The Sunday Mersey Series drawn at Mersey Walk saw another new match record set by Derek Bibby surpassing the one he claimed on the 22nd September of 40-13-0 by a margin of over 15lbs! He cemented his place in Mersey match history with a phenomenal weight of 58-15-0 taken groundbait feeder and maggot. Derek's catch was made up of fourteen bream to 6lbs, skimmers, and hybrids. Ant Higham aka King of the River was in second place but may have to abdicate following the new record. He fished the same method as Derek and included two 5lbs bream in his net of skimmers for 15-14-0.

Our Monday Disabled & Over 60's match was fished this week on the Bridgewater Canal at Keckwick and saw local match ace Jimmy Byrne repeat his last week's win but with a much lower weight of 3-12-4. George Hollis was in the runner-up spot with 3-6-4. Most catches were made up of small roach and perch with not much to divide the field.  

Thanks to all those who have volunteered to help clear swims on the River Dane we will sort out dates after leaf fall to make the job easier. Also, thanks to the small but hard-working team who cleared weedy swims at Cicily Mill Pool this week.

At this time of the year when there are not so many anglers on the bank I really need your catch reports and it is also nice to let follow members know how waters are fishing. Please email frank@warrington-anglers.org.uk or give me a ring on 01928 716238.

WAA Headquarters at 52, Parker Street are open as usual every Friday between (please note winter times) 7 & 8-30pm for 2018 night permits/membership renewals, new members, subscriptions, and any queries.

9th October 2018 Warrington Anglers Association Guardian Notes

9th October 2018 Warrington Anglers Association Guardian Notes

Derek Cowell and Steve McQueen both enjoyed a productive day at The Mount last Wednesday where 'the pupil' out fished the teacher. Newcomer Steve caught five carp smallest 8lb, largest about 12lb, whereas Derek had three carp, again with the biggest just over 12lb. They both fished a method feeder with 6mm and 8mm pellets as banded hook baits. In fairness Steve put his better catch down to the fact that Derek put him on the better peg just as I would do.

Ian James had a cracking days roach fishing at Appleton Reservoir this past week where he set up with a small groundbait feeder using double maggot on the hook. He reckoned that he had about 25lbs made up of some forty-five fish. Andy Strickland hit the jackpot on Friday after blanking on his previous two visits. He caught a roach on his first put-in, and pretty much a bite every cast thereafter with loads of roach 6oz to 12oz, plus one perch. His biggest surprise was the seven tench, one around 5lb, four around 4lb and two around 1.5lb. Two very happy anglers.

Our Woodshaw Reservoir Team report that this pocket-sized fishery is really fishing on top form. Regular Johnny Johnson was there again this Monday and caught fifty decent sized roach, six crucians, and a brace of bream. All fish were caught on caster.

The Sunday Mersey Series drawn at Victoria Park saw a new name on the leader board, Neil Davies, who fished pole and maggot tactics for an all roach net weighing 13-12-0. Match organiser Ray Boden fished the same method to catch a mix of roach and perch for 10-15-0.

Our Monday Disabled & Over 60's match was fished this week on the Trent & Mersey Canal at Farm Road and saw local match ace Jimmy Byrne take a decisive win with almost a 2lbs margin over second placed Alan Brown. Jimmy fished the pole alternating between pinkie and caster for a weight of 6-12-0 with Alan on 4-12-4.

Thanks to all those who have volunteered to help clear swims on the River Dane we will sort out dates after leaf fall to make the job easier. Also, thanks to the small but hard-working team who cleared weedy swims at Cicily Mill Pool this week.
