I do like the variety of the club matches.
The main target would be Bream and Skimmers but there are also lots of Roach and some big carp in the lake.
My main attack was the groundbait feeder at 45m with another feeder line at 24m for somewhere to start and a 4m whip line for the roach.
I mixed up 2 lots of groundbait, a mix of Sonubaits 50:50 Green and Match Method mix for the 45m line and a more roachy mix of Sonubaits So Natural Roach with some F1 Black for the 24m line which I also fed on the whip line.
I started by putting 10 big feeders full in at 45m with casters and corn in the groundbait, then fished the 24m line for an hour or so for a few roach and a small skimmer. I then went out to the 45m line and after a while and a few casts the tip finally went round a couple of times resulting in two 1lb+ skimmers, with no more indications for 45 minutes I put in a couple more feeders full and went on to the 4m whip for a bit to see if there were Roach there in any numbers.
The whip did produce some Roach but it was a bit slow going so went back out on the feeder and soon after a nice Bream was in the net followed by another on the next cast.
This was the pattern up to the last hour, 2 quick fish then had to wait some time for the next fish.
Triple maggot on a 50cm hooklength caught me all the feeder fish.
The first half of the last hour did not produce a bite so I spent the last 30 minutes on the whip for a few more Roach.
From what I had heard I was in with a chance of the win and when my catch went 20lb 14oz this was indeed enough to win the match with 17lb 15oz in second and a good all Roach catch of 12lb 15oz in third.
