Bristol Docks Evening Series 5/12/13

Thursdays evening match was fished at The Mud Dock and Police Launch stretches, the water was clear, we haven't had any rain for a few weeks, there was very little tow all night until the lock gates were opened, then the docks ran hard for for 10 minutes and a 2 gram float layer flat on the surface as water was let out into the Avon Gorge. When the gates were closed, the water bounced off the lock gates and ran hard the other way, until eventually it settled down and everything was back to normal.

Top rod on the night was Dave Shore with a lovely net of skimmers which weighed 10lb 6oz, caught on the pole with maggot and ground bait. Dave Clutterbuck continued his good recent form and caught 5lb 4oz for second, this was roach and dace.

Pete Sivell and Jason Bird were joint third with 5lb 2oz, both caught caught roach and skimmers on the ground bait feeder. Andy Curry had 3lb 15oz for fifth place and Merv Sivell had 2lb 14oz from end peg 1.
