11th December 2018 Warrington Anglers Association Guardian Notes
Dave Gardner and Ken Hewitt decided on a pike and perch trip to the Bridgewater Canal on Tuesday and first tried the Moore area but after no action moved to Preston Brook, again zilch. In the clear water conditions, it was a matter of find the fish and decided on a trek to the end of the Bridgewater where the Preston Brook tunnel connects up with the Trent & Mersey Canal. A change of tactics using the old favourite, maggots at last brought results and they both caught roach and skimmers to just over the pound mark.
Sandiway Lakes catch reports are rare as some members seem to think that keeping them to themselves is the way, whereas such information undoubtedly helps to both keep and attract new members. Thankfully our bailiff Andrew Hewson doesn't subscribe to this way of thinking and reports catching a lovely 31lbs mirror on Big Sandiway during his Monday session using his homemade boilies.
Our Saturday Mersey Match Series have now ceased until June 2019. However, the Sunday Mersey Series are still continuing until the end of the season. This week's event at Mersey Walk was won by Alan Faulkner fishing a groundbait feeder and maggot with a net of skimmers, roach, and eels, plus a bonus bream of around 5lbs for a total weight of 12-8-0. Arthur Plumb was second fishing the same method with 10-3-0 and also included a bonus bream of 6lbs and 3lbs topped up by a few small eels and roach.
Our Disabled & Over 60's match on Monday was held at Woodshaw Reservoir where despite the good pleasure catches the previous week bites were harder to come by than expected. Graham Belton fishing pole and pinkie was the winner with a net of small perch and roach for 5-1-12. Tim Dwerryhouse was the runner-up fishing the same method with a weight of 4-3-4. I'm sure they all appreciated the tea and biscuits served by the team after the match.
Please send me your catch reports, good, bad, or indifferent as they help follow members to gauge how waters are fishing and to plan their outings. Please email email@example.com or give me a ring on 01928 716238.
