Over 60 and Disabled match, Lagoon 14/9/19

As I am off work for a couple of weeks I decided to give this weekly match series a visit. Draw was 10:00 and I was really looking forward to it as Lagoon has been a good venue for me previously. Drew peg 8, far bank midway down. That was pretty much the highlight of the day! Although I was steady in getting bites, at the all in all I was pulling out was small roach and even smaller perch. I had 3 tracks set up and a margin.
1. 7m out on the edge of the lily bed, GORTINI 4×12, 0.09 mainline to 0.06 hook length and #20 forged hook. Caster and pinky.
2. 10m out back edge of the lily pad, GORTINI 4×12, 0.09 mainline to 0.06 hook length and #20 forged hook. Caster, big red and pinky.
3. 13m open water directly out front, GORTINI 4×16, 0.10 mainline to 0.08 hook length and #18 forged hook. Caster and expander.
Margin. 2+2 front of the lily pad, GORTINI 4×14 margin, 0.15 mainline to 0.09 hook length #18 foged hook. Caster and worm.
Burt Baits; Red bream and crushed expander 70/30 groundbait, big squirt of red glow additive. Sweet F1 4mm and Chock Orange 2mm pellet.
All day it was proving hard with very little happening on any of the pegs, Paul H on a far bank peg was landing a few good carp though and sat across from me I could see Jimmy C pulling out some decent bream. I was still catching but nothing substantial. 15 mins to go and Chris G hit into a carp that was leading him a merry dance round the pool, but he did eventually land it. I had what I think was a tench take my margin rig and dump my hook soundly in the middle of the lily’s with 10 mins to go to the all out.
Finished off with 21 roach, perch and skimmer for 2lb 11oz and 5th place.
Next week is on White Door Dam and I have already booked on.
