21st July – Buntys 2019

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 6 – Buntys – 21st July 2019 – 14 fished

Missing some big names at this match, looked like could be easy points for a few people.

The match was off and most people looked like to be flying, with some feisty carp bombing about and cruising on the top.

Patrick had a personal best with a 4th place and was catching most of the day, few moans about pegs and washing lines from the usual culprit (Rick) but the weather held out and a good day was had by all.

A visit from Steve O […]

7th July – Border Fisheries (Meridian Canal)

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 5 – Border Fisheries – Meridian Canal (pegs 1 – 30) – 7th July 2019 – 15 fished

Sort after match this one, a great lake, already shown some good weights the day before should mean some good fishing… or?

Start the morning with a full english with a brew for £6 what more could you want to start the day… maybe some hayfever tablets for those of us who suffer…

Not as warm as the last time we fished this lake, but certainly not cold.

As we had 30 pegs and only 15 of us, […]

9th June – Fields Farm (Big Beam)

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 4 – Fields Farm – Big Beam – 9th June 2019 – 15 fished

It turns out that Sandbach Macdonalds is now 8am opening on a Sunday !! This was a little bit of a disappointing way to start the morning !

But the sun was out, and it was warming up to be a great day.  A quick call to the owner and we decided that the 15 of us would be split over the 3 legs evenly, so we spread our selves out over the whole lake.

With the first few hours showing […]

28th April – Border Fisheries (Match Lake)

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 3 – Border Fisheries – 28th April 2019 – 16 fished

A venue we have fished before, however never on this lake.  With rumours of large hauls being pulled from this lake in recent matches, Midport where bound to not catch well…

However, after a quick draw (when the lads who went to the wrong lake turned up) and a long walk round to some of the pegs the day was looking good.

Few fish topping showed signs of what could be a really good match.

As we were really well spread out, the talk of […]

24th March – Moreton Fisheries

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 2 – Moreton Fisheries – 24th March 2019 – 13 fished

Another new venue for Midport AC, booked by one of our founding members.  On first arrival we were talked through the pit and told there was 13 different specices in there ranging from small to large in size.

We pegged it out, as some of the pegs were unuseable, we managed the 13 pegs required with a few fishing in the shallow end on the advice of the owner.

What a tough match this turned out to be !!

With most lucky if they managed […]

24th February – Moss Farm (Maddison)




Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 1 – Moss Farm (Maddison) – 24th Feburary 2019 – 16 fished

A new venue to start off a new season. The fog coming from Middlewich over to Irlam was like driving through pea soup, but all got there safe and sound, with the weather looking to clear up before the start.

A warm welcome from all the staff there and a great cafe on site.

Which a large breakfast at a very reasonable price, started the day off with a treat.

With a GREAT turn out again […]

18th November – Old Hough (Upper Benbo)




Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 10 – Old Hough (Upper Benbo) – 19th November 2018 – 17 fished

Another great breakfast with 12 out of 17 of us showing up to get some warm food at the Turnpike…

With a draw slightly earlier that scheduled and a great venue with no need to take any pegs out, 17 of the pegs out of the 24 were drawn and fished.

With a cold start to the morning, the hope was that the weather would warm up, with the sun coming out and temperatures […]

21st October – Fields Farm (Big Beam)




Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 9 – Fields Farm (Big Beam) – 21st October 2018 – 17 fished

Well what an amazing start to the day, full English, unlimited toast, juice, tea/coffee after that fishing was just second best !!

Meeting down at the lake, most of us having never fished it, advice was taken from those who had, and we decided to take all the pegs down the centre of the lake.  Reports of plenty of room and easy access being the options.  (this later transpired that maybe we shouldn’t […]

30th September – Buntys




Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 8 – Buntys – 30th September 2018 – 14 fished

Weather reports were dismal on the lead up to this match, with a heavy chance we were all going to get wet… but the Midport AC luck held out and a small drizzle early on was all we got.

With most of the league never fished or even seen this venue, this match would not be down to insider info, it would all depend on the peg and the methods used.

A few moans from the “old […]

9th September 2018 – Old Hough (Lucky and Prospect)




Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 7 – Old Hough – 9th September 2018 – 17 fished

With this being a local venue for our club, there was promise of weights upwards of 100lb in previous matches (not from our club thou).

A lot of entries had been fishing these lakes for the last few weeks, wanting to test baits and tactics before this big match.

I glorious day showed some promise.  Deciding to take all evens with 1 extra peg on Lucky and the draw was made.  A lot of noise about […]
