MATTHEW POWELL REPORT :
Sorry it's a bit late boys but this is what happened on Sunday ☺️
Drew 171 on the canal and didn't really no what to expect as that part of the canal can throw up some tench and skimmers but they only shown on the end two pegs :/ anyway,
I've fish two lines down the far shelf with squat over GB :)
Started off in the fish hour alternating between these two lines and put 46 fish in the net, until it dried up so I put another ball on each and went on my worm and caster line right across with no bites
Luckily I had a track line with worm and caster but that only produced three small perch so went back down the far shelf and I've had about 18 fish between the two lines for 2lb 3oz 6grms, which was second in my 7 men,
Fed too much down the far shelf :/ lesson learnt can't wait for the next time I'm on it 👍🏻
