I drew well this time with peg 23 being last in the bag for me, this was the winning peg on our last visit.
I fed two 5m lines, one with corn and the other with 4 and 6mm pellets.
As usual it was a steady start with a few small carp at 5m on corn and a few on hard pellets. I then gave the method feeder a go to the island and had a few slightly bigger carp from this.
2 hours into the match I saw carp had arrived over the groundbait I had fed down the edge so I then concentrated on this as the bigger carp tend to come from the edge. I had a good 2 hours on this catching on bunches of dead red maggots but then it went very difficult with lots of small roach arriving and not so many carp seemed to be visiting so a slow last part of the match for me.
I knew Stan on peg 22 had caught more than me so 2nd would be the best I could do and that was the result with my 137lb 3oz just beating Dave into 3rd by 11lb.
