Q4 Kingsbury Pine Pool

Eliminator - 31/05/2019

Always likely to be a very tight match. We are again privileged to be allowed access through the hours of darkness. Over the years we have seen Kingsbury develop from a doubles water into a twenties water and there are now fish present over 30lbs with a good head of smaller fish to keep the buzzers going. After maintenance was carried out a couple of years ago the lake is fishing better than ever. Kingsbury’s acclaimed six-and-a-half acre day-ticket carp water with mirrors and commons to the low 30s and plenty of doubles, Pine Pool is a traditional carp water where modern carp fishing techniques work best.
Never stocked with fish less than 5lbs, Pine is best fished with boilies, trout pellets or trout pellet paste, sweetcorn, luncheon meat and bread crust, flake or floating crust – in fact, just about any bait that catches carp. However, anglers who ring the changes tend to have the most consistent sport and heaviest catch weights. There are plenty of facilities on site. Including toilets, shops and cafe. Gates are locked over night. Parking is allowed in the designated places around the lake.

Pre Match Report

Post Match Report

This event produced a new venue singles match record weight for Jack Lamb, who had a great start on Friday by catching eight fish for 151lb 14oz. On Saturday he added another six fish, giving him a combined total of 249lb 2oz. This weight could have been even bigger but he was getting low on bait and decided to wind in and get a good nights sleep. On Sunday morning he cast out again but didn’t add to his tally. This didn’t effect the outcome as he romped to victory some 50lb+ ahead of his nearest rival.

Tom Derome came out first in the draw and opted for the reeds, peg 5. He started the match slowly and didn’t catch at all Friday. Saturday he had seven fish and Sunday he had another three to take runners up spot behind Jack.

Tom Cuthbertson, in peg 3, didn’t catch Friday but had a good Saturday with five fish. On Sunday morning he banked another three and lost what looked to be a good one, despite that he had done enough to take third place.

It was a close run thing, with Brian Byford finishing in fourth and Glenn Alexander fifth. Both with 100lb+ catches over the 48 hour duration.

This venue just gets better year on year and I can’t wait to get back here for Q8 of the pairs in a couple of weeks. There were 50 fish caught for a total weight of 956lb 3oz. This equates to an average of over 19lb+ per fish. There were three 30lb+ fish out and eighteen 20lb+ making it a truly exciting match.

Brian Byford 30lb 8oz

Glenn Alexander 27lb 5oz

Jack Lamb 22lb 3oz

Kevin Locke 23lb 2oz

Steve Blow 15lb 7oz

Tom Cuthbertson 30lb 15oz

Tom Derome 31lb 7oz
