Rolfslake Wednesday Open 4th October 2017

Andy Rayment King of the lake.

On another low attended midweek open the Wednesday gang were today pegged along the motorway bank.

Continuing his super form was Andy Rayment who today for his troubles had to move to peg 8 from his regular peg 9. The good news was he did not have to travel far to collect his mail today.

Andy today fished the combination of long across and towards the bush to his left.

As per last week Andy found it too shallow at 16 metres as you foul hook alot of fish there but when he focused his attention towards the bush it was game over.

Andy fished pellet hookbait feeding pellet to catch fish to big double figures in his weight of 304-15 and only the second 300lb weight of the year.

In second place was Top Tackle’s Angler Gordon Worrell who had to watch Andy bag up from his peg 7. Gordon also had fish to double figures but fell way short of Andy with his still respectable weight of 155-10.

In third place and after a few near misses was Robert Rayment who finally got his ton weight of 103-07 from corner peg 4.

Above is just just a sample of what you can catch at this time of year at Rolfslake as John Bennett had this monster 20-08 common on the pole.

Rolfslake Wednesday Open 27th September 2017.

The fish have a proper feed in today’s match.

Today saw a low attended midweek match but with the wind blowing on the lake for the previous two days , it triggered the carp in to feeding.

Today the anglers were again fishing the motorway bank as this was were the wind was blowing in to .

Today’s winner was Middy sponsored anglee Andy Quarmby who was fishing peg 8 in the gap between the big and small lake.

Andy fished across to the far bank 16 mtrs but it was a little to shallow to hold the fish there, so he also fished a short 6mtr line and one to the bush to his left.

Andy had only fish to 14lb as the majority of  fish were smaller than usual (9lb) but by fishing pellet feeding pellet he kept the fish coming from.mainly the bush to his left.

A slow last hour stopped him catching a rare 300lb weight but he had to settle for his final weight of 255-08.

Today’s winner Andy Quarmby.

In a very close battle for second which was decided by only 9 ounces, saw Dave Wilsden on peg 9 prevail over John Bennett on peg 14 with his weight of 183-14 to John’s 183-05.

With the carp now starting to feed properly before the winter now is the time to catch yourselves some proper big carp to 20lb.

Rolfslake Wednesday Open 20th September

Andy Rayment is the man to beat

Today saw a low attended Wednesday Open down the lake and it was decidedicated to fish the motorway bank pegs 9 to 18.

The match started slow for most of the anglers but from the second half of the match the lake totally swithed on.

In first place today was Andy Rayment who was fishing his regular peg 9 as it he has drawn it a few times of late.

Andy fished at 6 metres towards the end of the bush and a very close to the tree stump down the edge. He fished 4 and 6mm pellets for both hook feeding and was rewarded with big fish to 16lb as his board weight went 120lb.

When added to his fish in the net the combined weight was a fantastic 234-07 not bad for late September.

There was a close battle for second between John Bennett on peg 14 and Gordon Worrell on peg 18, which was just won by Gordon with his weight of 137-03 to John’s 123-08.

In today’s match there were 26 doubles caught of which 15 were over 14lb.

Mal Doyle’s Top 3 challenge match.

Top 3 challenge match.

Today saw 20 anglers fish a top 3 section match which was the brainchild of top 2 specialist Malc Doyle.

The day started warm turning to rain for most of the match which was also cold which put the carp off feeding and also out of range.

There was a very close battle between Steve Wilson and Gareth Price on pegs 40 and 5 which was eventually won by Gareth with his weight of 105-01 to Steve’s 102-13.
