Team Daiwa Dorking win the Winter League Southern Semi Final at Gold Valley Lakes - Preview


Team Daiwa Dorking

Cold but otherwise perfect conditions greeted the 100 competitors to the first Southern semi final of the Angling Trust Winter League at Gold Valley Lakes, Aldershot on Saturday 2nd March 2013.

A slow start for most, and unfortunately a few blanks as the carp were still tightly shoaled, but otherwise some excellent weights were recorded throughout the venue. The winner came from Bungalow Lake where Pete Goodman banked 17 carp up to 9 kg by fishing the pellet cone up to the rope, Pete’s total of 56.160 kg was well clear of second place venue expert and Dorking star Mark Goddard who caught 14 carp on pole and pellet for 37.660 kg. Third place went to Gary O’ Shea fishing on the canal bank of Gold Lake who fished corn on the straight bomb for 36.200 kg.

On the day the favourites Team Daiwa Dorking put in an excellent performance and took the first qualifying place with 83 points. The other qualifiers for the River Trent Final on 6th July were Monk Lakes Blue with 72 points, and Preston Innovations Delcac whom qualified despite 2 blanks.

The Angling Trust would like to thank John Raison and his team at Gold Valley Lakes for making everyone feel welcome, and all their help and support on the day.
