A busy Bank Holiday saw plenty of matches contested at Shiplate Farm Fishery.

A busy Bank Holiday weekend saw lots of matches at the popular Shiplate Farm Fishery.

The hot weather made the water temperatures warm enough to see most of the fish through spawning, therefore the weekend was never going to be easy getting the fish to feed again so soon.

On Sunday, Frampton AC held a match on the Main Lake – results: Pete Bartlett (p3), 87lb 4oz; Rich Gibbs (p14), 69lb 3oz; Ian Townsend (p15), 57lb 11oz. Silvers went to Gary Ford (p6), 20lb 3oz.

Fry’s also fished the Hawthorns: Ray Cooper (p9), 94lb 8oz; Pete Sivell (p1), 73lb 4oz; John Macey (p7), 69lb 4oz.

Sunday’s open katch on the Westpool: John Hawkins (p11), 90lb 14oz; Steve Howell (p7), 84lb 12oz; Julian Pinkett (p1), 67lb 2oz.

Monday’s match on the Main Lake saw the top four bags all go over the ton mark: Russ Peck (p12), 115lb; Dave White (p8), 111lb 9oz; Dave Romain (p13), 106lb 8oz; Mark Wynne (p7), 104lb. Silvers went to Robby 38lb 12oz.
