  • James Maude Ac Portland Waters Canal


    Saturday 28th June 2014 (6hrs)

    Weather: Overcast, dry with a cool breeze.


    Today saw the return of the 24 James Maude Anglers to Portland Waters to rest their laurels on the canal, this is a formidable lake with winning weights possible from most pegs, the fish in this lake are taking on some size and a good weight could soon be racked up. Always a warm welcome from Jayne and her crew with a hearty breakfast to start the day it was time to do the business, with the usual jovial banter that always precedes the draw and with monies paid hands were itching to enter the draw bag, so with our most senior member Lenny Burton always having first dibs in the bag the pattern was set as the queue of eagerly waiting anglers all with sweaty palms jostled their way to the draw. Our last visit saw Kev Brown draw peg 27 and take the spoils with 127lb-7oz, well they don’t call him golden hand (or words that cannot be printed) for nothing Kev pulls out peg 27 once again so no advise needed not that he need it as he tops the premiership league to take back his crown. A master tactician Kev was soon into fish but he had the added pressure of the new net rule at Portland 50lb limit so could he get his split right between nets. This proved to be no problem for Kev weighing in with 117lb-10oz and three nets all taken on pellet and paste across shallow and down the edge. Well done Kev. Back into contention for a top place in the league is Dave Sewell Dave drew peg 12 and fished a cracking match also placing fish into his third net to take 108lb-13oz to the scales, Dave taking most of his quarry down the edge. Well done Dave. Current league champion Kyle Wood was to be the third man to do the ton fishing from fancied peg 19 over the far bank shallow and down the edge to take 101lb. Well done Kyle. With some very good back up weights which on their day would have won most matches and a total combined weight for the day of 1,283lb-11oz a cracking day had by all.
    The results are as follows:
    Kev Brown 117lb-10 oz peg 27
    Dave Sewell 108lb-13oz peg 12
