24hr Fish

Post by claire_s_p on Wed Jun 17, 2009 1:12 am

The 24hr fish was upon us so Julz and I set off in a fully packed Buddy Bus with the aim of getting to the fishery by 11am this would give us an hour before the start to get everything sorted .....but things don't always go to plan do they and the satnav took us to the wrong road so we started the day lost, after some frantic phone calls we figured out where we were and where we needed to be and arrived at the fishery with about 20 minutes to get all set up. Mark and Bob greeted us at the gate and then we set about getting all our gear sorted.



Mark was already set up on a peg so we went on the next two pegs, Julz fishing long over a bed of bait on one rod and close in on the other. Mark and I were both using the pole to start with.

Fishing was quiet all afternoon which may have been something to do with the weather it was scorching hot with thunder rumbling all around and torrential rain a few miles from where we were fishing but all we had was a half hour heavy shower.



Julz managed a couple of very slimy characters during the afternoon both about 3 and a half pounds



Lesley (Marks wife) came down during the evening carrying a huge bag of hot fish and chips which were greatfully recieved by all of us, thank you Lesley.

As soon as the sun began to set the sport began in earnest.



for about 7 hours we were catching bream and tench one after another, Mark had a nice tench of 4lb 14oz which half an hour later I matched with one of my own,





Julz had a rattling bite which we thought might be a tench but as it came over the net she was thrilled to see it was one of few carp in the lake, which according to Mark are still quite a rare sight on the bank.



The great sport carried on till about three in the morning when it slowed right down as I think we all did as the Tuesday dawned it started to warm up and the sport slowed even more, but the warm weather meant that everything that was wet could be dried out before we packed away.

Several people came down to see us finish off the 24hrs we had quite a crowd watching, thanks to all the members at Sutton Lane who came down to see us, thanks for allowing us to hold the event there and letting us be the first people to fish it at night.

Finally I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who sponsored us and especially to Mark for coming up with the idea, arranging it and being great company for the whole time.

So far the 24hr fish has raised well over 200 we will have the final total in about a weeks time as the final forms come back to us.
