Angling: Like Chalk and cheers at Raker Lakes

Gazette & Herald: . .

GERALD CHALK made it two wins in a row in the York midweek series, this time taking the honours from peg 15 on the High Bank at Raker Lakes with 45lb 8oz.

Using the standard bomb with sweetcorn approach, he attracted the attention of carp to the 6lb mark.

Second place fell to Pete Utley at peg 11 on the big reed bed with 38lb 7oz of pole-and-pellet-caught carp.

Brian Pallister drew the opposite side of the reed bed at peg 10 and secured third place with 33lb 12oz.

Frost slowed down the action at Raker Lakes on Friday, but yet again there was no stopping peg 15 on the High Bank from producing the goods.

This time it was Norton’s Terry Tierney who pulled the peg out of the draw bag and went on to win Westland’s AC’s match with 38lb of carp to 6lb apiece.

Weights took a tumble after this with John Collier only needing three carp to guarantee second place with 11lb 4oz.

Phil Roberts had an easy win on the dog bone lake at Westland’s fishery on Tuesday, putting 26lb 8oz of pole-and-pellet-caught F1 carp on the scales off peg 10.

Mick Mathews sat close by at peg 12 and crossed the line in second with 16lb.

Action was much steadier than of late at Brooklands Lake, Brompton by Sawdon, when the Contemptibles paid a visit on Monday.

John Collier banked around 40 rudd to the 6oz mark with pole and maggot at peg three for a win with 4lb 11oz.

Fred Mewse sat at peg three and claimed runners-up place with 3lb 13oz of small silver fish.

Arty Wilson took 25lb 2oz of carp with the method feeder to win round three of Tri-Star AC’s winter league at Rosedale Fishery on Sunday.

Gary Milne was second with 20lb 12oz and now heads the league with 29 points.
