Maggot Approach Wins Round 3 Of Spring League

Paul Seed opted to fish maggots at 12 metres after drawing peg 49 on the Swan Pond in the latest round of the Messingham Sands Silverfish Spring league and it paid off handsomely for him.

Paul caught a variety of species which included some good sized specimens in his winning weight of 27lb 11oz.

Dave fished in a similar fashion but did not find as many bonus fish in his second-placed 22lb 11oz catch.

An improvement in the weather saw everyone getting plenty of bites and some surprisingly big roach put in an appearance with fish to 1lb 8oz caught.

1st: Paul Seed Grimsby 27lb 11oz
2nd: Dave Mountford 22lb 11oz
3rd: Kyle Hartley Scunthorpe 19lb 10oz
3rd: Carl Swetnam Rotherham 19lb 9oz
