Victory for MAP ace in the first round of Lindholme League.
Matt Pillay has won the first round of the Lindholme Lakes Natural Baits league, with a 56-15-0 net of F1s. The MAP and Old Ghost sponsored ace drew peg six on the prolific Bonsai Lake, and caught quality F1s fishing maggots down either margin.
Runner up spot fell to Richard Kerridge, who fished the league as a guest, with a terrific 48-6-0 F1 haul from peg 19 from Loco Lake. Maver ace Dale Shepherd took third spot, again from Loco Lake, bagging more quality F1s for 37-0-0
The league – which is pole only – allows only maggots, pinkies, worms, casters and groundbait to be used as bait, and carp aren’t allowed to be weighed in. The format has proved popular too, with 38 anglers booking on the league, and more anglers opting to fish the first round as a guest.
The second round takes place this Saturday 7th January, and anglers wanting to fish the league as a guest are invited to book on via Tom Scholey on 0797 1620489 or Matt Godfrey on 07917 711722.
Bradley Gibbons fished the Preston Pole Pairs qualifier at Hampshire’s Gold Valley Lakes in an effort to get into the £11,000 Grand Final. He and partner Mark Goddard have managed to book their place in March’s final with a combined effort of just over 15lb. The pair, will now compete for their chance to win the £4,000 first place prize at Woodland View on March 4th along with twenty nine other pairs.
“Saturday just gone saw me venture to Gold valley lakes in Aldershot attempting to qualify for the Pole Pairs final. My partner for the day was team mate Mark Goddard“.
“You could place your anglers and I opted to go on Gold lake, which put Mark on Syndicate. I drew 26 on Gold and Mark was on 128 on Syndicate. We had quite a simple plan which was to fill it in with a load of bait at the start and not fish for at least the first two hours“!
“So, the start of the match came, and I cupped in a load of groundbait and leam laced with joker and casters. I’ve then met up with Mark in the clubhouse for a coffee and a slice of pizza“!
“We both returned to our pegs but had very different responses after our initial feed. Mark managed to put a few fish together catching an odd big skimmer till the end of the match. I, however, had a very different response not getting a bite till the last thirty minutes, where I had one bite and one skimmer for 12oz. Luckily Mark caught 14lb 13oz which gave us a combined weight of just over 15lb to get us into the final“.
“I’m looking forward to the final now! Be nice if I can put in a slightly better contribution to our overall weight mind“!

The Preston Pole Pairs qualifier fished at Tunnel Barn Farm on 26th November saw the top three pairs on the day progress through to the Grand Final at Woodland View.
The match turned out to be a bitter sweet affair for the Maver Gold Dynamite team. Fielding four pairs out of the twenty-four that fished, the team were hopeful of a good result and so it turned out to be with Luke Capewell (pictured above right) and Wayne Bailey (pictured above left) qualifying for the final. The pair finished in third place with a combined weight of 89lb 11oz.
Also pushing hard for qualification were team mates Darren Johnson and Andy Dyson who finished in fourth place overall with 82lbs with Alex Hulme and Andy North finishing close behind with 80lbs to complete a third, fourth and fifth place finish for the team overall.
Team Captain, Clive Nixon, commented “This is a fabulous result for the newly formed squad and I have hopes for bigger and better things to come from the young and experienced anglers in the team. Thanks to Maver and Dynamite for their support“.
The final, which will see a total of thirty (30) pairs compete head-to-head, takes place at Woodland View in Droitwich on March 4th and will reward the overall winners with £4,000.
