    James Maude Linden Ac. Portland Waters (Old Lake)
    28th April 2012 (6hrs)
    Weather: Strong winds, heavy rain.


    On this day 28th April 1789: Fletcher Christian leads a mutiny against the commanding officer William Bligh aboard the British Royal Navy ship HMS Bounty. Well this was certainly no day for sailing your boat, with very strong winds and heavy rain you would have been forgiven if you launched your tackle back in the car/van. A fantastic turnout out with a full complement of 26 anglers plus one guest, this really is testament to the way Mick, Jayne and Toby (bailiff) have gone about their commitment to this great fishery, always a very warm welcome from the hard working staff who go that extra mile to bring you good service.
    Well with a full crew on board this was a golden opportunity to capture the moment for prosperity. But with the harsh reality of the draw bag and the venture out into the cold and wet day ahead of us who would be up for the task ahead. The Old Lake was the chosen venue as 27 stalwarts made their way to their chosen pegs. The waves were high with strong winds blowing down the lake and as the clock ticked around to 10am the sound of a triple blow on his whistle gave the all in. So who would be bold enough to take on the role of Fletcher Christian and who would end up as Cannon fodder. Let battle commence. With poles being tested from the off and not from fish this was going to be a tough day, not one for the faint hearted. But one man who stood up to the task ahead was Tony Smith winning his first match of the new season and upon doing so gaining a PB to make his victory sweeter. Tony fished close in under the overhanging bush from peg 34 feeding just a few pellets and meat with the occasional corn treat, with his favoured JPZ jelly pellet on the hook he was into carp from the off and amassed a cracking weight of 115lb-15oz this included a beautiful common of 19lb-6oz. Well done Tony (Fletcher Christian). Also fishing a very tidy match and getting his name in lights was Sean Hanrahan fishing from peg 2 Sean battled with the elements to bag a good net of fish 68lb-14oz to take second place. Well done Sean.
    Always a man to watch and never say die is Terry Wiggins with the wind blowing heavy on his back Terry toiled until two hours to the end when his peg 1 came alive taking 54lb-2oz to the scales to gain a third. Well Done Terry. A Special mention to new guest Pete Divito with a cracking bag of roach 21lb-14oz from peg 28. Well done Divvy. A BIG well done to everyone who stuck to the course, 27 brave hearty soles that deserved their rum ration at the end of this.
    The results are as follows:
    Tony Smith 1154lb-15oz peg 35
    Sean Hanrahan 68lb-14oz peg 2
    Terry Wiggins 54lb-2oz peg 1
    Pete Lambert 45lb-10oz peg16

    Qulity report Bill , bet Tony Smith was busy with 1154lb , he must have used a trawler , anyway m8 was a good match and really pleased for Tony , hes been fishing well and thoroughly deserves that win , well done to Sean and Wiggy as well cos it was not the easiest of conditions, you can see with the first two results that there will be no runaway league winner this year.
    [B]I only work ,drink and fish , I wish I could fish and drink as much as I work :D[/B]

      Shaun well spotted mate, i appreciate your proof reading skills, you can have an extra Rum ration for that mate. Tony was captain of his own trawler. A little typo with the additional 4. Your right Shaun the pressure is on Mr Brown the lads are gunning for him.
      Regards Billy Boy :)

        Your report is quality mate, another great read! Only surpassed by Tony's cracking catch. On a poor weather day he managed a catch that will long be remembered in JMLAC history over a few pints at Bridgnorth. Congrats to Sean (Tricky Tree) Hanrahan on his best result to date and also to Wiggy who has also started the season strong.

        Best Wishes
        Kev
