I drew peg 29 which was not the area anyone wanted and a peg I have drawn before and struggled, and it proved to be similar on this hot sunny day.
First put in on the pole to the island a 2lb carp grabbed the bait while I was still turning the pole to drop bait from the pole pot so a good start but I did not manage another carp until 2 hours later.
I also fed the 5m line with groundbait with some 2mm pellets, chopped worm and casters mixed in which I switched to when it was evident the carp were not really feeding in the area, trying different hook baits this produced a few decent skimmers, a 4lb bream and a few roach.
Alan G on peg 28 mugged a 10lb carp at the whistle and I thought that would probably mean he overtook me and sure enough he had a total of 19lb 1oz to my 14lb 15oz, this was 7th on the match which was a reasonable result from the area I thought, with some very low weights at our end of the lake.
