This is a very popular series of competitions held over the winter months. Starting in November and held fortnightly through November December January February & finishing in March.
Normally anglers arrive and meet for 8.30 ready for a 9.30 start. The format is a pegged draw rotating every 3 to 4 pegs throughout the morning and the afternoon. It is a catch & release with a 5 fish limit per peg. First fish will be timed in the event of a draw at the end of day. First fish on each peg will count for 2 points, each fish then caught on that peg will count for 1 point to a max of 5 fish per peg. Most fish caught on the most pegs and points tallied will give positions for the day. The top three anglers win cash prizes at each heat. Each event tallies up your accumilative scores over 7 of the ten events this then gives the final placements for each angler. The Overall top three placeings from the ten events will win the main cash prizes. There is also a bonus prize drawn out of the hat for anglers who have regulary attended a set number of events, they will also recieive a cash prize.
Innis Winter League HEAT 2
Sunday 26th November, we held Heat 2 of our Winter League. Eighteen anglers took part netting and returning a total of 56 fish between them giving a rod average of 3.1. This year several new names are appearing at the top of the leader board and long may it continue....great to see prizes being spread across the board.
Today started off dry but soon became wet and windy making conditions fairly tough. Fishing got off to a brisk start with fish being taken in various places over Carbis Lake. Mark Damarell had his first fish of the day just 2 minutes into the competition. The fishing continued throughout the day right up until the last hooter. As it was sounding, Stuart Parkin, from Newquay was netting his last fish. Winner of Heat 2 with a magnificent 8 fish for 12 points was local lad, Paul Nottle. Second with the loudest cheer of the day, catching 7 fish for 11 points, was Stuart Parkin. Third place winning the last of the cash prizes was Andy Lidstone from Exeter catching 6 fish for 10 points. Full list of results below.
