Fished the last round of the Meadowlands pairs Saturday with Trevor Wyse. We were leading going into this round so needed a good draw after the recent dodgy weather and I got one in the shape of Lambsdown 20. The wind has been atrocious so I gambled in a feeder day setting up 3 Drennan Acolyte rods 2x 10ft and a 12ft for putting some bait in. I set up 2 pole rigs at 11m just incase but never even looked on it. At the start I feed 10 feeder fulls at 20m and 5 balls on the pole of a Hinders Test Fishmeal Groundbait.
I’ve had a slow start with the guy to my right going off like a rocket catching 6 proper bream/skimmers in the first hour to my 6 hand size skimmers luckily my peg got stronger and stronger and I’ve ended with 36lb 13oz to comfortably win the match and most importantly the section. Trevor had a reasonable draw to to come 4th in his section. We ended up 4th pair on the day which was enough to secure the league so a great day.
I’ve got to mention this test groundbait as I’ve used it 4 times and recorded 2 wins a 3rd and a 4th. In these 4 matches I’ve had 106lb of skimmers and think it’s a cracking product.

The item itself is fine but it's very expensive. I have used aniseed for yrs in bait and had to add more of my own mix to the punch crumb to make it stand out. Knowing the price of ground aniseed per kilo I feel more couid be added to the product to make it better value for money. Just a thought
