Despite the recent drain down and subsequent removal of 50 catfish under 25lbs, obviously some were missed as Adam Sloman caught one of 18.02 and Jamie Parr had another of 18.04.
It has been a slow week on the season ticket water, although at least two big lumps were reported as lost, one right at the net.
Nevertheless, Scott Wainbridge landed a personal best mirror of 30.04, Matt Holland took a 25.07 mirror and Dave Reekie banked a common of 29.11. Gary Baker took a common of 26.07 and Jason Edwards landed a mirror of 17.02.
Sport is still lively on the coarse pools, with Amiees producing mixed bags of 58lbs to Russell Collins, 56lbs to Julie Bates and 45lbs to Mark Roberts.
Jamie Parr continued his earlier successes with a 70lbs bag in just a short session. On Teardrop Pool, several carp in the 3-4lb range and tench to 9lb 12ozs were taken.
NAFA Waters at Rackerhayes have had welcome boost of fresh fish.
A total of 93 tench were stocked including eight golden tench. Average size was around one and a half pounds.
Meanwhile, the junior section awards evening passed off successfully despite a last-minute hitch.
Abbrook Park Social Club in Kingsteignton had been booked for the function, but when that closed unexpectedly a new venue had to be found.
The Royal British Legion club in Marsh Lane stepped in to help out and a good time was had by all.
A buffet was laid out for the 50 members who turned up.
