Harrisons Tackle AC
The latest match for Harrisons Tackle AC was held on The Newark Dyke at Crow Trees.
The river has been running low and clear which has meant that catches have been a little on the low side.
The winner on the day was Phil Brandon from peg five opposite the Devon mouth with 6lb 11oz made up of roach, skimmers and chublets on the stick float with maggot.
Brandon had a real red letter day also winning the golden peg which was worth an additional £268.
In second place was Rob Rowe. He was next to the winner on peg six with 6lb 3oz of Roach and skimmers on the groundbait feeder with maggot and caster.
Taking third spot was John Barningham on peg 10 with 5lb 7oz made up of Roach, skimmers, bleak on the pole with maggot.
In first place on the day was in form Neil Barratt on peg 18.
Barratt fished open water on the pole at 8m with soft pellet over micros. He caught carp at full depth to 4lb feeding an inside line from the start.
Some quality fish finally arrived in the last 30 minutes and he caught some bream and chub before connecting with four good carp, landing two, in his winning weight of 46lb 7oz.
Bridesmaid on this occasion was Trev Pritchard on peg 15.
Pritchard fished open water to the fish cage with maggot catching small carp steadily through the match. He then switched to the margins in the last hour, putting 30lb of good carp on the scales and ending the match with 43lb 2oz.
Third place went to a new angler to the Lockland's matches Steve Newby.
He fished the method feeder to the island at peg four, with pellet switching to the pole later in the match at 8m to the fish cage. He caught two carp losing two more, with one estimated at double figures. Newby finished the match with 32lb 5oz.
Matrix Tidal Trent Teams Of Four Final Round
The Tidal Trent has been fishing really hard in recent weeks due to the low and very clear conditions.
Even the expected large tides had not been producing any colour which is required to get the resident bream and roach feeding.
With conditions like this the only banker species worth fishing for are dab and perch with the odd rogue barbell putting in an appearance.
In first place was Clyde Ingles (Lincoln MS) from peg 32 at Laughterton.
Clyde set his stalls out to fish for the resident barbel that can so often make an appearance on this noted peg and with 30 minutes to go Clyde was looking at a blank.
But two late fish took him from zero to hero and these brutes took the scales around to 17lb 8oz.
In second place was Mark Halkesworth (Leegem Angling) at peg two Laughterton. Halkesworth fished the long pole and flat float with lob worms for the majority of the day catching perch and dab regularly.
His final tally of 14lb 2oz was enough to see off Jeff Margetts (Roy Truemen Select) in third.
Margetts also caught dab but on a blockend feeder with worms and caster presenting a lob worm on the hook. Margetts registered 13lb 6oz from his draw at peg six at North Clifton.
Making up the final framing weight from peg 30 at South Clifton was Tidal Trent Master John Small (Lincoln MS). Small's catch was also made up of dab on the feeder at short range. His final weight was 12lb 6oz.
The teams on the day were won by Lincoln Fifty Shades Of Grey with 15 points from Lincs County OAP with 18 points.
The overall teams was a reversal of the day's outcome with the very consistent Lincs County OAP finishing with seven points from Lincoln Fifty Shades Of Grey with 14 points. Third place was Leegem Angling with 15 points.
The overall individuals were Mark Halksworth with an impressive five points from Alan Houlton with 10 points and in third John Small with 11 points.
Dynamite Baits/Scunthorpe ADAA Thursday League
Only the die-hard and dedicated anglers ventured out to fish on a very cold and windy day, with a gale force northerly wind blowing up the river made fishing virtually impossible to see the bites.
Once again it was mainly dab that were caught on worm feeder with odd perch.
Until we see some extra rain water in the Trent this seems like the norm. When it is still gin clear only dab seem to being caught.
Winner on the day from peg 35 was consistent Roly Moses Brigg AC.
Moses caught Dab plus the odd Chub on worm feeder for 7lb 10oz.
In second place on peg 33 was Maurice Thacker Whisby AS, with all dab on worm feeder for 6lb 7oz.
In third place on peg 37 was Malc Firmstone Lincoln. Malc caught dab on worm feeder for 5lb 8oz. Fourth spot from peg 31 was Dave Ashmore (Grimsby).
Ashmore's catch was again made up of dab on worm feeder for 3lb 1oz.
Siemens Angling Club
The lads embarked on a wind and rain-swept Fossdyke canal at wood cocks for their latest match with expectations high for some reasonable returns due to the canal having rarely seen any anglers of late.
The winner on the day was Foss expert Dave Small (Lincoln AS) with 12lb 8oz on peg 31.
Small's catch was made up of four perch to 2lb 8oz taken on lob worm and 8lb of roach on punch or pinkie.
Bridesmaid was Ian Snowden (Matrix Dynamite Trentmen) from peg 38 the other side of the Marina heading towards Lincoln.
Snowden has caught roach and some quality rudd on pinkie and dendra at 11m and finished the match with 10lb 2oz.
In third place was Alan Henry (Shimano/Dynamite) at the next peg to Ian, peg 39. Henry fished caster and maggot over groundbait plus a lob worm line.
His 10lb weight was made up of three perch to 1lb 4oz plus roach for a final weight of 10lb.
