Shaun shoots his way to the top on Gun­wade Lake

Angling - Ferry Meadows in good form

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - SPORT - By Ken Wade ANGLING CORRESPONDENT

Peter­bor­ough & Dis­trict AA are cer­tainly mak­ing the most of the good form of the Ferry Meadows com­plex.

Fish­ing mid­week on the Gun­wade Lake, skim­mers and bream showed with Shaun Con­ley out in front on peg 57.

He fished a feeder catch­ing good bream and small skim­mers for a weight of 30lb.

In sec­ond place on peg 59 was Chris Toon, who caught bream and perch for a weight of 25lb 7oz, then came Lee Jones with 23 lb 8oz.

The city club were back at Ferry Meadows on Sun­day fish­ing for the Pep­per Cup pairs match held on High­bank.

Gra­ham Page on peg 42 topped the field with a weight of 13lb 14oz catch­ing bream and skim­mers on the pole.

The win­ning pair were Page and Nigel Briggs, sec­ond came Mel Sag­gers and Alan Jo­pling and third Steven Ash­ley and Neil Beeby.


Cock Inn con­tinue to get good turnouts. In fact at the week­end they even had to split their club match between two fish­eries, Kings­land and De­coy Lakes.

The win­ner over­all was once again Bob Mills with 161lb 8oz of carp. He is hav­ing a great sea­son and on Kings­land small lake he seems to be un­beat­able.

All his fish fell to cat meat over 4mm pel­lets close in.

Not far be­hind was Chris Shortland with 160lb 10oz. He caught on feeder fished pel­lets.

Third place went to Pete Sanderson over on Elm at De­coy with 155lb 13oz.


In the De­coy Lakes open match fished on Beastie Lake match or­gan­iser Tony Evans topped a very strong field from peg 10 at the back of the spit.

A mixed first hour where noth­ing seemed to work well saw him switch to a mar­gin line with caster much ear­lier than he had en­vis­aged.

Thank­fully it was full of fish and he went on to weigh in 161lb 2oz.

He was fol­lowed byAlan Ma­jor on peg six with 149lb 11oz and Danny Sim­per on 148lb 13oz.


The Wil­lows on the De­coy com­plex has fallen out of favour with some an­glers, yet it still con­tin­ues to pro­duce good nets of fish as the Con­ser­va­tive an­glers found last week­end.

Top rod with a very re­spectable 113lb 3oz was Ian Brad­shaw. He drew peg 25 and caught all day fish­ing cast­ers and pel­let up in the wa­ter.

An­drew Porter did re­ally well from peg 16 to take the run­ner-up spot fi­ish­ing sweet­corn on the pole at full depth to put 80lb 14oz to the scales.

Third was Bob Walker with 70lb 14oz, all caught on cast­ers fished shal­low from peg 33.

OVER 55s

The De­coy Over 55s match fished on Wil­lows Lake saw Mike Mitchell take a very com­fort­able vic­tory from peg one catch­ing close in on paste to fin­ish with 157lb 11oz.

Roy Whin­cup came sec­ond from peg 29. He fished a small feeder then cat meat close in for 86lb 4oz and was fol­lowed by Keith Ray­ment with a level 80lb.


JVAC fished the pro­lific Six Is­land Pool at De­coy and again it pro­duced some huge win­ning weights.

Out in front from peg 10 was Andy Gaus­den. It’s one of the feast or famine pegs and thank­fully for him af­ter a slow start on the feeder his pole lines all came good.

In fact in the last hour he put close to 50lb in his last keep­net to see him weigh in 147lb 6oz.

Jay Richard­son put 131lb 7oz to the scales from peg two for sec­ond place, all taken on cat meat and paste, fol­lowed by Chris Saunders on 128lb 8oz.

Tony Evans won the De­coy Open.
