Messingham Sands Latest Match Results

Match weights were slightly below par last week at the popular Messingham Sands Fishery as rain and overnight frosts put a dampener on things.

Steve Nurse was optimistic when he drew peg 4 after hearing that it had produced the winner in the Wednesday Open. He set his stall out for crucians and F1s with 4mm expanders over micro pellets and caught steadily apart from a poor last hour. His 91 fish was good enough to win the day with 44lb. Sport was consistent all around the lake and most people weighed over 20lb of silverfish.
