Dick Lewis,and myself fished Drummonds Dubb yesterday.
We wanted to try different baits,so we could use, or elliminate them from using on
Sunday, for our winters league 2nd round.
I fished the pole with pellet, Feeding two small balls of fishmeal Grounbait.
With 4mm pellet on the hook. Dickie was on the feeder, and tried the bread punch,
with breadcrumb in the feeder. For 3 hours neither of us had a bite.
We decided to change to the humble maggot,with me staying on the pole,and Dickie
alternating betwen feeder,and pole.
Dickie was using chopped worm,and caster in is Groundbait feeder,
with double red on the hook.
As for myself, i balled in two more balls of groundbait,and fished double
red maggot over the top.
We fished for a further two,and a half hours.
Dickie finishing with about 9LBs, mostly skimmers.
I finished with two perch, one roach, one chub,and 21 skimmers for about
So we came to the conclusion that it was sod the pellet, and bread.
We will stick with the maggot on Sunday.
Dickie fished peg 9,and i was next to him on peg 8.Both on the far bank.
As for me being a lazy sod, i dumped my kit on peg 8 as that was the
closest peg on the far bank. Steve Bee had this peg on the first match
of the winter league, and it was slow for him, he's a good angler,
so Steve if your reading this, the fish are there now.
Buggers probably won't be there on match day though.
My wish for the draw on Sunday is:-
Road bank peg 7 or 6. Being greedy i prefer peg 7.
(hope your reading this God)
Far bank side, peg 14 would be nice.
Just a couple of pics of our day.
Need more shot on that.
Here it comes.
The tow on the water was quite strong.
You can make out my float on the left of the picture.
Yellow tip on an angle.
Nice little bag for 2 and a half hours.

Dale's had another disaster, he only managed third in section again.
Mark Brear is now on top.With Tony Davis level on points with Dale.
There's only 4 points between first, and sixth, i have a feeling
this will definitely go down to the wire.
Thanks for reading my blog, can't wait till Sunday.
I will try, and get some more pics of the weigh in this Sunday
as well. Until after the weekend, see you for now bye bye. STEVE.
P.S Dave Hoare as sent me some more good fun pics, so i will
upload them sometime,and share them with you.
