The lake looked perfect at the start, but quickly changed as the breeze began to push surface scum across the junior pegs. With no bonus fish putting in an appearance, it was those who opted for the smaller species that triumphed.
From the off, it was Freddie Bacon who set the lead, but as he slowed up later, Jessica Carter started to catch up and it proved a close thing at the end. Freddie concentrated on the pole and maggot and took a steady stream of silver bream and roach for 6lb 10ozs for a narrow win. Jessica tried for a bonus fish but when they where not forthcoming she went onto the pole with maggot or worm and started to peg back Freddie to finish just behind with 6lb 6ozs.
We had a new addition to the junior ranks with Freddie’s sister Sky joining us and nearly upstaging the more experienced juniors. Sky just concentrated on the pole and maggot and caught a lovely net of silvers and roach for 5lb 4ozs.
There were only 5 who turned out so there were no age groups, but everyone earned points in the Sensas league.
