An update on the Isle

Towards the end of last year I did a little piece about how the Isle was fishing, since then the weather has been awful and most of our matches have been switched to the pond or the canal, we did manage one match at the start of the year where I blanked and another two weeks ago which I won. I've been dying to get back on the river and now the temperature is up a few degrees and we've not had too much rain so hopefully we should be on it tomorrow. It will be interesting to see how it fishes after the floods and cold weather.

Here are the pegs and the winning weights so far,

Match 1 - 7th Oct - Peg 15 - 17lb 5oz
Match 2 - 14th Oct - Peg 27 - 14lb 12oz
Match 3 - 21st Oct - Peg 123 - 12lb 2oz
Match 4 - 28th Oct - Peg 28 - 20lb 9oz
Match 5 - 11th Nov - Peg 23 - 19lb 3oz
Match 6 - 18th Nov - Peg 28 - 5lb 6oz
Match 7 - 2nd Dec - Peg 126 - 8lb 2oz
Match 8 - 9th Dec - Peg 109 - 16lb 8oz
Match 9 - 16th Dec - Peg 106 - 8lb 8oz
Match 10 - 6th Jan - Peg 126 - 9lb 13oz
Match 11 - 3rd Feb - Peg 109 - 9lb 12oz

The winning weights have dropped off a little since the early matches but are still hovering around double figures. As I suspected chub have started to win a few matches after the first frosts but small fish nets are still featuring in the frame from certain pegs.

I'm still doing okay and since the last update I've had a second with 5lb 9oz and a win with 9lb 12oz, the match in between I blanked but did lose a chub first chuck which would have go me second place. Below are my pegs and results so far (wins in red, framing places in bold)

Match 1 - 7th Oct - Peg 15 - 17lb 5oz
Match 2 - 14th Oct - Peg 28 - 8lb 14oz
Match 3 - 21st Oct - Peg 123 - 12lb 2oz
Match 4 - 28th Oct - Peg 124 - 4lb 3oz
Match 5 - 11th Nov - Peg 27 - 2lb 15oz
Match 6 - 18th Nov - Peg 28 - 5lb 6oz
Match 7 - 2nd Dec - Peg 15 - 6lb 8oz
Match 8 - 9th Dec - Peg 79 - 3oz
Match 9 - 16th Dec - Peg 120 - 5lb 9oz
Match 10 - 6th Jan - Peg 122 - Blank
Match 11 - 3rd Feb - Peg 109 - 9lb 12oz

We've still only really used a few sections of the Isle but I'm not fussed where we are tomorrow, it'll just be nice to get back on the river. Come back tomorrow to see how we get on, it should fish well or will it be a massive let down?
